So you’re getting closer to the holiday deadline, knitting your wits out, desperately trying to get last minute WIP gifts done so they can be wrapped and given away to family and friends. Perhaps you feel alone in your desperation, reaching for an impossible goal. Just imagine if you had a special guy in your corner, encouraging you, helping where he could, and even stepping in to do the heavy lifting? Well now you can — yes, even married gals like me can have a supportive guy on the side. Without further ado, I present to you your early Christmas present, my brethren: Handmade Ryan Gosling.

I know, right??!┬áThank you to Alaina Wiens (@alainawiens) for bringing to my attention one of the best knitting links I’ve seen in a looong time. We may have to take this to the next level. So when you’re frustrated about frogging, or tired of prepping your goods for sale, just think about who’s got two thumbs and is ready to stand by you in your time of need?

That guy. Also, yum!
