It's Not Even Friday Anywhere
How could I have missed Fugly Friday? Well, I got a little busy. Cleaning the stash sent me off cleaning the entire apartment. Not just cleaning, cleansing, as I've removed bags of stuff for charity. I should not be allowed to watch Oprah, that's all I have to say.
Apparently the Fugly Friday contest has run its course, since I haven't gotten any new submissions this week. It's still open, should you knit something fugly or find something really bad on the internet. And now the stash is all up there on the link and badge, so you can see exactly what you could win.
For example, you might find a picture like this:
It's the Punk Jacket from Crystal Palace. Perhaps the punks elsewhere in the world are very different from the ones I knew when I dabbled in punk in high school. But I don't know anyone who would wear this. Especially not those cooler-than-thou punk kids. (Well, okay, maybe I know one person, but she's definitely not a punk.)
Everything about this is wrong. The shape is wrong, the sleeves are wrong, the stripes are wrong, and for the love of god, the yarn is wrong. Could we please, as a knitting community, ban fun fur? Please? At least on garments for people over the age of seven?
