I haven’t found any Marvel knitters yet, but those from the DC universe show a marked propensity to knit upside down.
I’ve developed a couple of theories:
- It reflects gravitational or atmospheric conditions on their home planets, where they had originally learned to knit.
- They need to rein in their superpowers — if they knit in the usual fashion, the speed and strength of their stitches would cause the project to fly off the needles.
- It’s a matter of superhero etiquette, like raising one’s pinky while drinking tea.
