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

Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

Sometimes a designer thinks a pattern needs that little something to make it special, to help it stand out from the crowd.



The one thing I'll say for this pattern is it certainly stands out.

Now I'm off for a double feature of Idle Hands and Evil Dead II to work out my strategy for when those hands become sentient and start killing people.

I actually think that for a kid, it's a cute idea. For a grown-up, it's a bit creepy...

Scroll-down made for an awesome reveal. I see cute gal in cute sweater and wonder why it's featured. Scroll down and GASP! I wonder what it looks like when your hands are not in the gloves?

Total scrolldown fug. It was like, "Oh that's a nice neckline GOOD LORD WHAT NO PUT IT AWAY."

I think it would look even creepier if her hands weren't in the pockets. Ugh

I would think it would look like empty udder teats when the fingers are not in the pocket. So what does it look when fingers are in? One guess.

But think how handy it would be for guys who can't stop playing "pocket pool." Eesh.

I'm trying to imagine how the design team came up with the idea. Bizarre.

Cute sweater except for the finters hanging out of the bottom. Really, were those necessary?
