Put them back on the table…

My eyes are bleeding. Extra large motifs plus gaudy colors surely makes it better to wear doilies…right??  Right??  Not.

Only while smokin’ the ganja…

There’s something really disturbing about this photo…can’t put my finger on it but I think it has something to do with the smile and the wanna be rasta look. Here’s the non-dreadlocks version…not much better either.

Something cozy…

For your feet! And guess what? These would go fabulously with the jacket in the last post.

Of if you’re in the mood to be an elf, here you go:

Or maybe you want something that’s just plain ugly:

Lots of options to keep those toes nice and warm while March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.

Hat Statue

It’s been fun sifting through some crochet art the last few days and in the vain of interesting, we bring you another installation which wins on creativity but loses on functionality. Some would say that’s the point of art but for the sake of this blog, if you show the hat statue on legs, it kind of implies there should be some sort of functionality there.

Practical?

The blog title where this beauty was found reads: “Crochet, Comfortable & Practical for Girls”. Where to begin exactly? Yikes. Not sure how comfortable or practical this design would be given the lumps and bumps the tampons would create under a  pair of pants or skirt but then again, who would notice, right? Insert sarcastic smirk here.

Thank you to one of our faithful readers for sending this submission in – it does appear on a blog from Hungary so perhaps the translation isn’t that great with Google Translate but I’m not so sure there’s an excuse for this one.

Step away from the crochet hook…

If you’re wondering when you should step away from the crochet hook, remember this old saying “too much of a good thing” and when you feel yourself slipping over into the abyss of overkill, it is definitely time to put down the crochet hook.

And to think these purse designs were created by a “team” and not one of them thought “oh hey, that’s just pushing the gaudy envelope, maybe we should stop”.

However, like good little designing minions for a yarn brand label, they are just making sure we all buy that extra skein of yarn to embellish our asses off.

ETA: For those of you with an astute eye (thank you Brandy!) the second purse is indeed knitted and that was entirely my oversight…my bad! I’ll leave it up there as it’s equally horrendous.

$500 Socks

How to get hosed? Buy $500 socks. Who commands such a price? An artist named Rodarte who I have no idea who they are but I digress…behold the holey socks…yes, I know it’s probably art but wow.

Holey socks? $500! Yuck response? Priceless!

Muppet Roadkill

When I saw this I laughed so hard…it looks like the whole muppet crew exploded on her shoulder! The atrocity and the horror of it…oh my! Fun fur never gets old does it? Maybe if Lion Brand actually had some decent yarns their patterns wouldn’t be so bloody hideous.

The Puzzle Hat

Do you get the feeling this guy likes recording and watching himself on video? Put down the coffee before watching…snort bubbles may ensue.

Mad Caps?

Now granted this was 1967 but the expression on the model’s face is priceless so a little crochet pattern nostalgia was in order. She’s sure to scare the little kids off the bunny hill if she wore that crazy cap while skiing.

Thanks to Brianna, one of our readers, for sending this one in…we appreciated the look back in time however frightening it was!
