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

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

The designer of the following pattern has this note on his Ravelry page.

There has been a lot of chatter on ravelry, as well as other locations, about the designs. The designs may not to everyone’s personal taste or desire, but there is enough interest to keep on offering these designs. Of the different caetgories, the two ‘sun suit’ (swimwear) categories receive the most criticism. To those who spoof at these designs - I will tell you these two categories sell more patterns than all the rest combined.

So to those people I would like to say - thank you for all the chatter - the more chatter - the more hits - the more hits, the more patterns I sell.


Okay, then it's with the designers blessing I say, "What did your grandmother ever do to you that you would do this to her?"

That gramma's got one hot bod! I hope I look like that at her age!

Gotta admit, the top is shaped nicely. Probably shouldn't be worn by anyone over the age of 10, but to each his/her own, I suppose.

I think I've seen her plying her "wares" on Hwy 99...

Could be photoshop. I think it is a tranny.

Please, someone tell me that the face is Photoshopped on a young guy's body. Doesn't even look like a woman from the neck down.

Wow! I needed a laugh today. Thanks!

Photoshop. But funny!

I wouldn't even subject a small child to this design! It has no shaping and pulls badly at the armholes; and that's ignoring the fact that it makes you look like you have armpit fires burning.

Also....Ew, old lady without bra.
