It's Yoda!

The look on his face says it all!

OK, I got a few emails wanting the pattern for this hat. This isn't the same hat, but it's close. You must have a login to view, but here you go: Felted Baby Yoda Hat

For the Discriminating Male with the Halloween Fetish

It's finally getting close to Halloween! Time for ghosts, goblins, ugly sweaters, pumpkins, and candy corn paisties! I will try my best to feature as many creative (possibly bizarre) halloween knits as possible this month. Some might be good, some might be weird, some might beg the question "why would you knit that?," I'll let you be the judge. Enjoy!

Candy Corn paisties:

Pregnancy Brings Oddities

Those darned pregnancy hormones make us gals do some strange things. Today's post is from a tipster who has asked to remain anonymous. She knitted herself a placenta while she was preggers.

Thank you anonymous tipster for your submission. I have to say the color choices were right on! Good job!

Let's Talk Digestion



Or if you are an I Can Has Cheezburger fan and perfer to think the cat, in fact, did get the cheeseburger:

Poop photos compliments of agmr and Pocket Farmer via flickr. You must check out Pocket Farmer's knitted poop, and the letter from her nephew requesting said item. It is too cute! The poop knitters are getting a free pass on the question "why would you knit that?" I mean come on, sometimes shit just happens.

Caution: May Cause Retinal Bleeding

Cue Thriller theme music...NOW:

Now before you go and accuse me of pulling these out of an old knitting book from the 80's, I have to say: these were recently added to the net as patterns. RECENTLY. Now I have to admit that my hair resembled a few of the models (think bangs hitting the ceiling fan blades), and I owned a totally bitchin' pink sweater complete with poofy sleeves and really thick shoulder pads, but those retired with my denim mini-skirt and my bottle of Aqua Net hairspray. The return of bell-bottoms was bad enough (oh sorry, "flared" jeans as they are now called) but I can't handle the return of the 80's, my eyesight is damaged enough from pong!

Wearable Lapghan?

Have you ever seen a really ugly afghan and thought to yourself: that would make an awesome skirt? Well, someone did.

Because they ROCK! That's Why.

Do people even say "that rocks" anymore? Well if they don't then they should, because these crocheted Boobie Potholders rock. My only question is does the nipple hinder their flexibility? Don't you hate when your boobies get in the way? I sure do.

Technically, these are crocheted, but I don't discriminate.

That looks like a price tag in the top photo. These are from the same creator as the crochet vagina tissue cozy. If anyone knows if she has an online store, please email me. I will gladly link to her.
