Eagle-eyed reader, Kristine, sent me a photo that deserves an entry of its own. Freeform crochet is very popular right now. I can appreciate it in a looking-at-a-bizarre-sea-creature kind of way. I don't think it makes great garments.
Case in point.
Would you look at this poor guy? Too ashamed to face the camera, ears back. He's a portrait of doggy sorrow.
