Is This What Dolly Parton Was Talking About?

We all know the song, don't lie, no matter how young (or old) you are, you have heard it at least once in your life. You know the one, about the coat of many colors her mother (she probably said "mama") made for her? She was so proud of it when she headed off to school, only to be teased by the other kids. Well Dolly, honey, if yours looked anything like this I might know why that happened:



And being the cheap little smartass that I am, you know I like to comment on how much this lovely pattern will cost you, typically followed by the phrase "and your dignity". Today's feature is no different: That would be $12.50 and your dignity please.


I would also like to add a little note on today's post and say "thank you" for all of the nice comments and emails I have received because of this blog. Of course it goes without saying that this blog was created all in fun, and to be honest, even when I tease I am still impressed (no matter how hideous) at the things people are able to create with some yarn and a needle or two. I am glad to see that I am not taken too seriously (at least no hate mail yet), and some of you guys are seriously funny!

I'd call it a dress of many colors. And look at all the different stitches?? Knitting, pearling, cable, afghan stitches, wow---amazing. What are they all?

I'd think it would be heavy, too. And worn with pants?? yucky

Yikes, I think my retinas are bleeding. But I will confess I made a very loud knitted jacket for my daughter who picked out the colors are decided the order. She was 4 at the time and wore that jacket out.

And would it be a dress for a Mexican Fiesta? or Halloween? I just can't decide.

An amazing undertaking for sure but one I would not pursue, nor wear.

Am I weird to think that this pattern might work if the colours didn't want to make you remove your eyeballs with a knitting needle? I dunno, like if it was done in a couple of different shades of the same colour, you could wear it as a giant knitting sample? Without the jeans of course.

There's something hypnotic about it. First, I thought, "Definitely designed while on LSD." Next, "Definitely has that Summer of Love vibe." Then, "No way I could ever wear that." Now, "Hmmm, maybe it's not so bad."

I've got to stop staring NOW.

Y'know, I think this might be an attempt to emulate Mrs. Weasley from the Harry Potter books. In the film versions, Mrs. Weasley wears a coat a lot like this...
