Possibly the MOST hilarious knitting/crochet blog ever
 
Maybe this is in the wrong place, so feel free to move it if it belongs somewhere else.

In searching for patterns a few days ago, I got directed to a blog called Handmade by Mother (so you d*mn well better wear it!). Now I know that knitting and crochet has become a whole subculture of its own, but who knew there were knitting comedians? The author has transcribed "vintage patterns of yesteryear" and inserted in them her own commentary, sometimes by way of explaining a particularly badly written section, but mostly for comedic effect. Very comedic.

Of course if you actually wanted to make a ladies ski mask that looks like the love child of George A. Romero and Chef Boy-Ar-Dee, you could do that. (Begs the question ... why??) But mainly, it's a look back at what our forbears used to spend their spare time knitting. And apparently gramma had a freaky side.

WARNING: This blog is a dangerous time sink! (Enjoy!)

Have you discovered the Yarn Harlot yet?

I've heard of the Yarn Harlot (who hasn't?) and I'm pretty sure that I've read some of her stuff (or heard it from Wendy). She's a scream too as I recall.

I'll try that one, but I always read Yarn Harlot. She's both thoughtful, thought provoking and hilarious!

Love the ski masks. I need some labels "Gramma made it so you d*** well better wear it!"

I had a feeling this blog would appeal to your sense of humor... it's SO much like my own.;)

You, my dear, have a warped sense of humor. Me too.
Actually, I see that things I've given the GKs do get worn...or at least go in the laundry.

Guilty as charged.

But I bet you never made the GK's anything as horrid as this! Or this, and certainly not these! Because... damn.

Poor kid here http://handmadebymother.blogspot.com...fit-crime.html looks like he's wearing a skirt even, on the right.

I don't think so....if I set my mind to it. Those could be costumes in horror movies.

How do you do your links like that?
