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

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

Knitters magazine has fallen into a time warp. And while they were there they took a bunch of stuff.

Do we even need to discuss the knitted items which combine lace with bobbles and fun fur? Good Lord, people, there's only so much I can take.

And as for the title. I think the only "chillin'" that Mr. Mondragon* and his staff engage in would also involve a nice Chardonnay. Let's leave the ten years out of date hip hop slang to suburban college students, okay?

And while Bill O'Reilly worries about the war on Christmas, I am concerned about Knitters' War on Breasts. Honestly, they hate them. I first suspected after the last issue came out with not one but two designs featuring the impossibly unattractive "tie under the booby" closure. But this new issue seems very concerned that breasts stay well covered --with large decorative elements.

There's Flowers Over Boobs

And Ropey Cables Over Boobs

And Giant Frogs on Boobs.
