I think the Borg have gotten a bad rap over the years. Sure, they violently assimilate other races and add their biological and technological distinctiveness to their own, but as far as I can tell they have like a zero-percent unemployment rate. Have you ever seen an out-of-work Borg? I don’t think so. And they get to fly around the universe in a sweet cubical starship, plus you just know they’ve got some kickass multiplayer gaming sessions going while they’re all plugged into their little recharger booths. The only problem I see is that they always look kind of chilly. Maybe it’s all that pale, grayish skin, but I can’t help but imagine that those Borg ships get awfully drafty with all that open space. Well, somebody pass along the Collective’s email address if you’ve got it, because we’ve got the solution to their problem right here.
A Redditor known as k80k80k80 posted pictures of the handmade knitted Borg cap in Reddit’s knitting forum recently, dubbing her creation “2 of 7.” Sadly, she didn’t post any patterns to replicate the cap, but I’m sure once it escapes into the general population we’ll all be wearing them before you know it.
In related news, Reddit apparently has a knitting forum.
