Yarn Corps Uncovered Part Two: Deadly Knitshade and The Purple Purler

Posted by on Oct 28, 2009 in Deadly Knitshade, Yarn Corps | 0 comments

There’s a definite yarnstorm electricity in the air. Where in this tangled ball of yarn of a city is it coming from? Londom’s street smog is thick with it. It can only be a matter of time before it hits.

In the meantime we drag two more unsuspecting sneaky stitchers from the secret wool-lined bunker to confess.

Stepping out of the shadows are the knitblast-cursed rodent-wrangling Deadly Knitshade and the fang-fixated Purple Purler.

Deadly Knitshade

What is your theme tune?
A Four-Legged Friend by Roy Rogers

Which superhero’s powers would you most like and why?
It’d have to be Spiderman’s wallcrawling and webslinging for those hard to reach yarnstorm targets. Must remember that with great yarnstorming power would come great yarnstorming responsibility.

Mouse horror

What is your biggest fear?
The Blue Whale in the Natural History Museum coming to life and appearing above me while I sleep. Watching me with his tiny evil eyes… Oh the ocean-based horror…

Your three stranded on a desert island yarnstorming essentials?
(Aside from yarn) my trusty 300-tool swiss army knife, a soldering iron, and buttons and beads for blinky ‘Don’t leave me’ eyes. So sad.

If you died during a yarnstorm what epitaph would you have on your gravestone?
“Purl, interrupted.”

The Purple Purler

What is your theme tune?
Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie

Which superhero’s powers would you most like and why?
Invisibility: imagine all the conversations I could overhear, and all the scandal I could witness unseen. However, if I could be Dr Jean Gray from X-Men that would rock!!

Love bugs

What is your biggest fear?
Reserves of Rescue Remedy run dry on the day the vampire underworld was discovered and I was meant to meet Stephen Fry!

Your three stranded on a desert island three yarnstorming essentials?
Purple cable ties, Rescue Remedy, and pear cider

If you died during a yarnstorm what epitaph would you have on your gravestone?
“She tried! She failed! She got impaled!”
