Well, I guess that depends upon your perspective huh?
I do not generally post my knitting or crocheting mishaps because not posting these doosies (i) leads you to believe that I am a creative genius whose every single touch of needle or hook to yarn is a divine gift and (ii) well, I'd like you to laugh with me, not at me. Sometimes, however, I believe that I just need to throw vanity to the wind and show you those catastrophic conceptions that have managed to bypass my internal alarm system, an apparatus which is normally capable of complete eradication of crappy art before it hits our shared reality with a resounding thump.
So here goes...
Can we all acknowledge what a HUGE trooper my daughter is for modeling this um, err, stupendous creation?
It's a wearable black beast with tentacles!
It's an woolly eclipse of the sun!
I know! It's a Thneed!
No dumb-ass, Thneeds are multi-taskers. Hel-lo. That? Is not even a uno-tasker.
You know, in my defense I saw the problem way before the completion of this um, dark mohair doohickey, but being the mohair-y being it is, frogging was painful and pretty much impossible so I just kept going. Hey, I hate WIP's more than knitted nightmares. What can I say?
Here's the best part...
I wore this baby to the Cube Farm today where I was met with many a comment ranging from, "What the heck are you wearing?" to "Did you make that???"
However, one of my fellow Cube Commandos passed by me in the hall this morning and tore the thing from my shoulders, put it around her own and exclaimed, "This thing is COOL!"
I guess one person's tragedy is another's triumph...
