A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

It's hats off to Liz this week for sending me the links to this week's passel of unfortunate knits. It's especially good since I was recently speaking of my love/hate relationship with Nicky Epstein. Okay, I was only talking about the hate part but there is some love here for her too. But not today. She has published a new book called Fabulous Felted Knits. There's already errata for it here (pdf file). Fabulous? I don't think so. I would like to put forward a title change suggestion, "Inconceivable Felted Bags." These bags cause such a riot in my brain I don't know if I can write anything else about them. I'll sum the whole thing up for you in two words-- dangly bits. The photos are a bit small so I apologize but you may thank me in the end.

This one is called "S'wanderful." Oh, Nicky, the wit! The wit!

I think I speak for all of us when I say that I will never again look at a chess set without feeling a little ill. And dirty.
