Can you believe it? A knitting post!

A lot of bloggers are crafty. Not crafty as in sneaky, but crafty as in good at crafts.

There are a lot of bloggers out there who knit and crochet and cross stitch and all that yarny and needle-y crap. I have to admit, I find that stuff a bit of a snooze. But if it's a blog I read all the time, I still read about it. Okay, maybe I scan it, or skim it. But I pay enough attention to get the gist of it. I figure they don't really devour my posts about fantasy baseball or Blogmad, so it all evens out.

But now I am starting to change my tune. I had no idea that knitting could be so much fun!


Let's see, first thing I'm gonna need to get is some yarn...

That's a fuckin' riot!

Is this person living in a padded cell? I hope?

That's it. You've definitely crossed the line with this post. It goes beyond funny to simply gross and disgusting.





I'll be back to look at them again later.

Love it!!

I knew a guy who used to make cakes like that...he had an album with photos of crash cakes etc. You would be surprised (or perhaps not) at how many orders he got :)

Who took the time to knit those?! I knit, but I don't blog about it. Mostly because I suck at it.

Here's another pattern you might want to try. http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwomb.html

omigod those are great.

Since I know your first project will be a gift for your special sis, the Pup, I want the girl with the scissors plunged into her. Make her blonde, and old, and stupid with a heart shaped diamond engagement ring.....
OH and she should secretly be a trailer trash ho from Tennessee who happened to get lucky and marry up...to one day become my boss lady...

please oh please hurry. And while you're in the middle of your project, just plunge those knitting needles in her little body...any old where you please.

Thanks bro.

That last one of the head looks like what I have been wanting to do to a certain colleague over the past few weeks... It just doesn't look like him... Can you make one with blond curly hair for me?

ahh a craft that is only limited by yer imagination or the lack of it.

hmmm I wonder if I could get my oldies at my daycare to start some of these projects...maybe if I said we'd send them to the psych hospital instead of the kiddy one.

Now that's the way to knit! Though I agree with some others here, I really hope the knitting needs are of the extra saftey kind or this person likely used then in multiple homicides.
