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

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

I was sent this little gem as a birthday gift from my friend Patricia in Austin. It kept me up last night trying to wrap my brain around it.

Yup, an intarsia goldfish toilet lid cozy. I have so many questions.

  1. Why do you need to knit a cozy for your toilet?
  2. Why isn't the toilet-contoured floormat also knit?
  3. Why is there a goldfish on it?
  4. Is it so you know where to put goldfish?

Then I went in for the closeup and found the most pressing question of all.

What alien planet if this fish from?

And so long as we're on the topic of Intarsia Gone Wild. A little something for your next trip to the dentist.

While I agree that flossing is important I imagine the two years it would take you to knit this sweater might be better spent.
