Knitty Gritty, Part 2

As I’ve said before, this is nobody’s idea of a knitting blog, especially since I am barely a knitter myself, but there is only so long I can accumulate these woolen horrors before I share them with all of you. I know many of you were badly shaken by the previous collection, especially by this, so I will try to be a little more in line with your delicate sensibilities. At least this time around!

And sometimes, folks, the jokes just write themselves.

But, dear readers, I have saved the best for last.

I’m already “casting” about for your next installment, which might include a few completely irony-free vintage numbers like the one on this hapless fellow below.

Proof indeed that a picture is worth a 1,000 words.

    […] out an example here.) Those posts remind me of some Anna did in the early days of her blog, titled The Knitty Gritty. So for this guest post, I decided to take a stab at some of the worst of the worst knitting out […]
