"Good morning, Ms. Hunter. The yarn you are looking at is Jacques Cartier, Qiviuk, 28 grams, 218 yards of delightful, soft, warm fibre. Your mission, Robin, should you decide to accept
it, is to make the most of this yarn and create something truly special. As always, should
you fail in your assigned mission, we will
disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in
five seconds. Good luck, Robin."
It's a slightly smaller version than the original, the pattern is adjustable. I adapted the final chart at the outside edges for a different stitch count because I stopped halfway through Chart 2 rather than waste any yarn.

I've been knitting my whole life. I don't even remember learning. I started making garments for myself in my teens and then explored sewing, tailoring and millinery. I want to teach knitters about fit and flattery and turn them into fashion stars!
On my blog you will find lots of interviews with knitting industry professionals, how to tutorials and a variety of posts about what's going on in the knitting world.
I love to come out and speak at shops and guilds. Here's what the Downtown Knit collective said after one of my talks:
“Robin Hunter’s inspiring talk, “The Barbie Factor,” left everyone in a feel-good mood at the conclusion of the May meeting. Heads were nodding in agreement all around ... as she tackled a multi-faced problem faced by many knitters—why don’t we knit for ourselves? She touched on many topics including fashion, body image, media and how it all relates back to our knitting.”
