Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger

I came across a new sock yarn club called GothSocks from Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs on Etsy.
"What are GothSocks you ask? GothSocks are our line of self striping yarns that stripe a sold black for 4-5 rows and then a variegated or semi-sold for another 4-5 rows."
Color me enchanted! Tip of the hat to you, Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs!

Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs also has adorable orifice hooks for spinners. (I love how dirty that sounds!) They are handmade and decorated with woodburining and color. My favorites were the one with the garden gnome and another one Gir from Invader Zim riding a pig. Had I not just brought home a Fricke with a delta orifice (locally; link is for reference), I'd be all over these hooks.

But, wag of the finger to you, Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs, for copyright infringement! Cartoon characters such as Gir are not public domain, and selling an orifice hook does not fall under Fair Use. My friend Clarine can educate you further on this subject, as she regularly smacks down unlicensed usage of the anime characters distributed via her company, Funimation.

she probably won't sell that character hook, the folk on etsy are really aware of unlicensed use of characters and won't buy things with them. I learned this when I made stitch markers with beads from a broken NFL bracelet, nobody would buy a logo item like that.
