Ok.. I’m feeling my age today. I’m of the early 70′s vintage and so I thought I would find something thats in keeping.
I am not the world’s biggest fan of the Granny Square. I know they are great for using up scraps of yarn. I know they are great for comfortghans, scrapghans and “justhadtomakesomethinghans”.
But I believe there are some places Granny Squares just shouldnt go.
and generally – Granny Squares dont survive an “On the Body Experience”. They also should not be made up by a polarised committee of Colour-blind Chameleons.
Call me conservative, but I like toning colours with the occaisional contrast: Think Ferrero Rocher rather than Quality Street.
So when I consider
I’m actually in two minds.
First of all – I really like the concept, the top is fitted to give a bit of shape, and I like the heart-shaped neckline.
The problem I am having is… there’s something really not right about it. And it’s making my skin crawl.

Meant to “disguise” your most personal feminine hygiene product -
you decide if it works or not. The pink one is a uterus cozy with ovaries on it!
Thank you to one of our readers for this submission!

I’m unspeakably relieved that despite a significant amount of searching I couldnt find Christmas Crocheted Fug.
I looked. I found some really darling pieces that made me wish I had more time in my life but.. hey..
What I did find.. and it produced a number of mixed reactions when I saw it, was this:
(get this.. it’s a bargain at 3,000 pounds!!)
It’s a Hat. It may LOOK like a sea anemone or the hyperbolic crochet reef.. but it’s a hat. For 3,000 pounds???
It looks vaguely biological.
And if anyone feels that they could make this and give it to their significant other/partner/sweetie/husband (darling or otherwise) and not have it surreptitiously fed to the dog/cat/budgie, please give it a go, and send the photos!
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and are looking forward to a fugfree (in every way!) New Year!
