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

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

Who among us hasn't had the urge to knit a sassy pair of yellow, cowboy-inspired pants? I know. And wouldn't they be so much better in yellow with a lot of random texture? But you hold back. We, as a community, have been able to restrain yourselves. Until now.

When I first saw this next photo I thought, "It's kind of Sgt. Pepper meets the Muppets." But know I don't even notice the sweaters. I just want to know what the hell happened to the front model's hand. Why is it all black? My best guess is they were photoshopping the color on her sweater and her hand got in the way. The other possibility is that the hand has died but is still attached to her body.

This last one was sent to me by Birdy.

A crocheted hamburger dress. Perhaps I'm blinded by my undying love for hamburgers or a deep appreciation of kitsch. But I freaking love this dress. It's insane. There are crocheted sesame seeds on the bust! It's so fug I think it's looped back around to fab.
