Tree Cozys?

I think that I will never see a sight as lovely as a tree.... as long as it's not wrapped in crochet.

Yes, I *get* that yarn-bombing is a thing, a real thing. But this seems like someone took it the most extreme level. How are wood peckers supposed to hunt for insects now? Isn't this not the most healthy thing for the bark? I'm so confused.

We Will, We Will.. Haunt You(r Dreams)

For many years I adored the band Queen with their over the top frontman Freddie Mercury. I hitchhiked to see them in NYC and all over the South during the mid 70s. Any time they were coming through my part of the deep south I was there.

So imagine my surprise when I saw that people had crocheted Freddie Mercury dolls and a few people had attempted corkscrew curled guitarist Brian May.. no one had enough love to do drummer Roger Taylor or largely silent bass player John Deacon.

Makes me want to do a crocheted Mott the Hoople, my other favorite 70s band. Here are the good, the bad and the nightmares of Queen.

Cute and so Freddie right down to the copious chest hair.

The hair and the attire on Brian are right on the money. 

Is this Borat and Albert Einstein?

Red, White and, Ugh, Blows, errr. Blues

Well it's turned hotter than hammered hell here suddenly so it's sit inside under the blasting air conditioning and crochet. With the 4th of July upcoming it's time for a patriotic project. Just don't make it be this one, unless you are seeking to give off those celebrating with cheap beer and bootleg fireworks in the trailer park while trolling for menfolks...

You'd just end up with a hangover and a strange sunburn pattern if you wore this to a picnic on the 4th, or possibly molested by your cousin.

What Is This? Jon Snow's Long Underwear?

I am thinking even the Night's Watch at the Wall in 'Game of Thrones' wouldn't don this travesty under their black clothing, no matter how long winter lasts and how many White Walkers arrive. Even a Wilding wouldn't wear this.

But I might... if we keep having such extremely cold weather here. Normally it would fall no lower than the 60s here in the spring, but this week it's fallen into the high 30s. Perfect weather to wear this ugly pile of yarn, make some soup and sit around crocheting while watching Netflix..

That Poor Dude!

I've been too busy to update but here we are again.

One of the things I've often wondered about are those poor males that get forced into modeling duty for the uglier things people crochet. Are the crafters getting them drunk first before having them don these things? Blowjobs promised? What, what? You know there has to be something hinky going on to make a man willingly put on some of these.

This dude looks unnaturally serene, like he's thinking about puppies and poptarts or just ripped a huge bong hit. See what I mean?
