Thanks for posting the link; I tried Googling so I could share a picture but came up empty.

Well, I guess I didn't say that quite right. It's not really the red color that made me think of a cult-type robe. The image that really struck me that way was when I saw the folks all sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows (I believe) and they were all wearing the same color. Uniformity has always bothered me

My question is....what about your back? They show it going over your front, which is probably fine in a chair or couch, but walking around? Seems like your back would be a tad chilly! :-D
Yeah, I'd be tripping all over myself if I tried to walk around in it.

I actually feel much cozier when I wear my robe right way around and can cross my arms in front of me and pull the edges close. But that's just me.

Oh you beat me Pam, I was going to say I got that email myself with the snuggie for knitting and or crochet. They call it the wrap-ghan.
I don't think so a lot of yarn when I could make a lap ghan instead.

I haven't decided yet. I like the 'idea' of it...but, I'm not sure...I saved it in my "look at it later, maybe/maybe not" file.

I remember those and have been trying to remember the name to see if I could find a picture how how they were put together to make one.

As I recall they didn't have arms like those patterns and your head went into a corner like a hood, but arms would make it easier to figure out.
