Knitted Beards! Get 'em now!
« on: November 08, 2011, 05:11:00 pm »

Howdy, fellow short, sturdy, bearded creatures fond of drink and industry!

Are you lacking in the beard department?  I recently discovered the ultimate solution, while wandering the "internet":

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

This was on Reddit, as it happened.  So naturally, I turned around and shared it with the DwarfFortress subreddit - who loved it - and pretty soon I found the creator.  Turns out she's had a lot of interest in them - from DF and otherwise, and is now looking into selling these to anyone interested!  You can get them here: http://whiteandrice.bigcartel.com/

Here's the reddit thread as well: http://www.reddit.com/r/dwarffortress/comments/m3u5i/we_all_need_one_of_these_update/

Also, the maker of the beards created an account on Bay12, just to communicate with us filthy lot! Aww!  - User: WhiteandRice

It is not a dwarven beard if it is not soaked in alcohol!

I have been agonizing over what color to get.  Do you think you can do white?

CatalystParadox: I mentioned a !!plan!!
ThatAussieGuy: Sure, but any time there's a plan involved in Failcannon, it inevitably ends in either a tantrum spiral, the accidental death of over a dozen dwarves by FB/titan or miscellaneous !!Fun!!.
Urist Imiknorris: Even more so if the plan itself is on fire.

Hi! I'm the maker of the beards. They come in other colors and are perfect for the coming winter :)

My stars this is amazing. I hit up your site, but can you describe/show in greater detail the mechanism for attaching it to your hat? Is it intended to connect on the sides, or 'round back? I lack any sewing skill, so the "For Dummies" version is probably necessary  :P

Just a heads up, guys, this isn't a revolutionary concept. Knitted beards have been available for at least two decades. They're not as common as they might be, because about half the world can grow real beards, and for women and children, scarves are more traditional. I'm not sure wy that is; it seems like scarves have wasted material compared to things like this.

It's intended to attach on the sides, in your sideburns area and by your ears. The beards come with a needle and thread already in it. Just put a few stitches from the inside of the beanie ( you don't want the sitches to show on the outside of the beanie) through the sideburns area of the beard and tie the thread into a tight knot. Repeat on the other side and you're done!
