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

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

I'm not completely opposed to cropped tops. There are some elegant ways to work the shorter sweater. Then there are ways to slap a rectangle of knitting on the chest of a model.

It's not helpful to "embellish" when a design already makes you look super-stumpy. How much do we think this denim tank top weighs anyway?

Looks like something the daughter on Swingtown would wear.

It turns out the same is true for crochet.

Even the model can't hide her disdain for this weighty, stumpy sweater.
