I’m pretty proud of this piece for my geek blanket. I actually knitted Ed O’Neill from “Married with Children” better known as Al Bundy. Crazy, isn’t it? As for most of my works for my blanket, this one is mostly Intarsia. Just for the eyes I’ve been using some fair isle. My blanket is constantly growing, I would say that I finished 2/3 of it. I’m not able to invest more time I it because I have some extra projects I’m working on, but more about them later.
Why did I knit Al Bundy?
I loved “Married with children” when I was in my teenage years. Me and my friend could quote Al Bundy just to annoy the girls in our school. Al is such a looser and always seeking for just a little bit of happiness in his life. I think many people can connect to that. He loves his family even though he won’t admit it. I got all eleven seasons on DVDs and am still watching them from time to time. I never thought I could see Ed O’Neill I n another role, but he is just great in Modern family. Therefore I still have to find a motive.
