Be nice to me, or I might crochet you a tie. Yeah, you heard me. With a matching watch and hat band.
Sweetie, now don’t be scared, just hold still while we call somebody to remove all those blue spiders climbing up your sweater.
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.
