Hey girl, I hope you signed up for the Tricksy Knitter newsletter

The internet has brought us so many things. Real time updates on significant world events. Re-connect with friends and family. Political awareness. How to do a provisional cast on. And the Ryan Gosling "Hey girl" meme phenomenon.

The weirdness of popular culture eh? The Hey girl Ryan Gosling meme trend has taken off into all sorts of crazy subsets: feminist versions, handmade versions. I don't know what it is about this guy, maybe it's his earnest face, or the fact that he's Canadian, but man, these are funny. I started a Hey Girl Pinterest board to keep track of some of my favourites. Mostly craft related, but not all.
