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.
