Atrocities in yarn

Take the dang picture already.

Be nice to me, or I might crochet you a tie. Yeah, you heard me. With a matching watch and hat band.


Mom loves me, she loves me not...

Sweetie, now don’t be scared, just hold still while we call somebody to remove all those blue spiders climbing up your sweater.

It's a good thing I'm only 3.

I suppose there are worse yarn crimes to perpetrate on your children (See: spiders, blue), but this is a cute idea gone awry. Are the kids contemplating jumping in that lake and swimming far, far away from the person who made them wear those dorky coats? I know I would.

I’ve got more where these came from. My grandma gave me a 22 volume set (missing volumes 1 and 11…) of craft books from the late 60s/early 70s. There are quite a few good ideas in there, but most of those do not involve yarn. How is it that so many yarn creations can go so horribly, horribly wrong? I don’t know, but it makes for good comic fodder.

  1. Oh my wooorrd!! Actually the last one is almost saved by how cute the little boy is…he looks like he’s got to have an accent too, so a cute little boy with an accent in a horrific outfit is kind of overall cute. 😀
