We thought it had to be a fake at first, but an LA Times report from CES back in 1987 actually mentions the accessory as being part of an “offbeat knitting demonstration.” The device apparently allowed you to hook it up to your NES and program in items of clothing for it to knit automatically, patterns and all. The Times said it could make mittens, socks, and a variety of other items, but the flyer only mentions sweaters.
Okay, I have no idea where I originally saw this post, but here it is Devan.
Sorry, Mario, but the Princess is in another aquarium.
I need this because of reasons. Devan, you know what they are, help me!
Oh my Mario, I remember that game!!!

These are uber creepy, but I really want a piranha plant!
In addition to the Mario collection. I collect the Mario Wii trading cards. In fact I would like to collect all of the cards.
Yay, someone wanted to play! http://mets-in-trains.tumblr.com/ asked me to photograph a large collection of something I had. So I picked the biggest one I could think of that would appeal to mets-in-trains. So we have my Mario toys and plushies, various Nintendo game systems (I’ve got a Game Cube around some where too) Mario video games, a spiny my fiancee made out of polymer clay, some figures I made out of polymer clay (but haven’t finished yet, need to paint some details) and my Mario purse, which I think I would carry even if I was a guy. :)
