Stash Buster Don'ts - Serial Killer Masks

I get the need to use up all your various yarn leftovers and turn the scraps into all sorts of creative things. But here's the thing...

...these masks look like something you might don in a Grindhouse film right before you break out the chainsaw and nipple clips!

Don't Do This! Buy a Damn Chocolate Bunny For Reals!

I know mommas everywhere are trying to keep candy and chocolate consumption down as low as they can. What with all the bouncing around off the walls hyped up on sugar and the caffeine in chocolate. But... there are those sacrosanct things that should never be messed with. Like candy on Halloween and chocolate bunnies on Easter. These are cute, but why, why, why would you give your kids one of these instead of a traditional real chocolate Easter bunny? You're a mean one, Ms. Crocheting Easter Grinch!

I'm always suspicious of brown yarn anyway......

Sunday Sublime Thinking of Oceans, Beaches and Turtles

Oh this has to be one of my favorite projects I've seen online in ages....

A simple design with big impact and the beautiful colors sliding one into another.

If you'll now excuse me I have to go finish crocheting a quinceanera dress for my cat....

Please Do Not Do This To Your Man!

Okay ladies, I understand the need to use up scrap yarn. I understand the desire to make something nice for your man. But please.... refrain from the stuff that turns him into a freak.... unless you really enjoy humiliation of men. If that's the case then be my guest and go right ahead!!

Were these things made for Burning Man?

We're Back! and Not in Prison!!!!

I'm Going to Blame This One on Drugs

The late 1960s and early 1970s were a confusing and awful time. A time of great social upheaval, experimentation with spirituality, drugs and sexuality. But mostly it was a time of the most truly ugly clothes.. like these pants. You really should be high to wear these.

Have a Bang Up 4th of July!

I've been having a busy hands couple of weeks after finding twenty skeins of a certain yarn I wanted to make a rug out of at the Dollar Tree. Instead of the usual 7 or 8 bucks a skein this was only a dollar a skein, priced to move.

But that hasn't stopped me from enjoying the bizarre spectacle that is Independence Day projects others have done in time for this 4th.

For the gents these perfectly hot and itchy yarn shorts for the 90 degree heat:

Love the golden dingle balls!

The ladies projects were a bit more 'weather friendly':

Stay safe and have fun tomorrow! Try not to blow off any bodily appendages with fireworks!
