WARNING: I woke up feeling a little cynical this morning.

I just got to the KnitBits newsletters that have piled up in my inbox, and the one from May 27 has this (http://www.berroco.com/knitbits/knitbits_090_yc.html) in it. Is this placemat & matching coaster & tumbler ugly, or is it just me? And I'm not all that crazy about the pillow, either. It looks like a silk worm threw up on it.

I just had to ask, and then I'm going to go back to being my reasonable self again. Don't know why this got to me this morning, or why I felt so compelled to share my less-than-jolly feelings about them.

You're not cynical, they're just plain ugly, :(

I think all of those things are ugly not just the placemats. What are those people thinking?

Oh, good! It's not just me! I thought I had lost any degree of coolness I might have ever had. :cool:

Just because you CAN attach scraps of yarn to things doesn't mean you SHOULD ! :rofling:

I don't know how to post it here, but if you have a chance, take a look at the Goldilocks Felted Bag Kit from www.onefineyarn.com. It looks like Spongebob after years on drugs! :rofling:

Here's (http://www.onefineyarn.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=OFY&Product_Code=CBD21) the direct link to it. I'm sure there is someone in this world that could carry this bag and make it look simply lovely. But that person is not me ... I am not a Spongebob fan. :lol:

OMGawd, that Spongebob Bag is absolutely hideous! It looks like severed fingers hanging off the bottom.

Hehe, you can put that hairy yarn on flip flops, not just placemats! But, really, why end there???! Ooh, the ideas are a-comin' - I can wrap my lampshade in it, DH's wallet, my fan blades, my car's steering wheel, the toilet seat cover...the possibilities are endless. :roflhard:
