This design was conceived soon after my friends, Jason and Felicia Gurley, became pregnant with their little Emma. Felicia is a devoted knitter and Jason is a professional graphic artist and the author of the graphic novel, Eleanor (which includes some knitting, accurately depicted, I might add).

Jason occasionally broadcasts his work monitor while coloring the inked pages, allowing people like me to watch slack-jawed as he swiftly and surely lays down color and texture to bring the black and white images to life. Best of all, viewers can text him to ask, “How did you do that?!” and he will reply when he can pause.

One night there was a shower curtain see below whose coming-to-life was so enthralling that I borrowed its design to make a little beanie for baby Emma. And so here you have my rendition of the shower curtain-turned beanie.
