Chartreuse Knits

Where a college student learns--and struggles with--the zen of knitting. It's the process, not the product, though the product is much more fun to wear!


I posted this yesterday on my other blog

Torture at its finest

Borrowing from the ever-hilarious Stitchy McYarnpants, here are elements of torture the knitter can use to make her significant other/children comply with her wishes. "If you don't do _____ I'll make you wear THIS!" Men, I advise not to anger any knitting girlfriends/wives. However, I advise you to marry them, because they can produce really nice, masculine, stuff that'll keep you warm like scarves, socks, and sweaters!

Granny Afghan in a Sweater. She did it. Look at her sickeningly sweet look that hides vile malice underneath. Like the bunny of doom. Fluffy on the outside, psycho on the inside. But this sweater.... It's just psycho on all sides!

Double Double yuck and trouble! His and Hers. Wrong in so many ways. Especially the matching shorts.

Return of the Yeti. Wrong. Now you see why wrong things don't deserve to stay knit?

Heinous. No matter what "changes" you make to the guys' sweater. That's what it will always be.

Like father, Like son. Does that mean the son's going to grow up and be the guy in the Gay Pride parade wearing rollerskates, a batman cape, and a sequined jock strap? And nothing else?

The Cream of the Crop. Wanna look like a pack of Skittles? I bet that guy is tasting the rainbow... him and his terrible tan.
