Hey There Lonely Girl...

Original article by:
So there I was, just getting my google on, and all of a sudden, THIS.  I've pulled all of these photos from the Huffington Post, and they've got the whole scoop on this well crafted man friend, which you can read by clicking the linky under the picture. However, I'll be giving you the "I'm OK being a 'C' student," Cliff Notes version.

Artist Noortje De Kejzer sometimes felt lonely and the sad, and desperate landscape of the modern dating scene did nothing to help her shake that feeling. And, she figured others must, at times, feel lonely themselves. So, she created her very own knitted boyfriend, which speaks to the human condition and the want of companionship.

I hope my project brings a bit of recognition, and awareness that everybody feels lonely from time to time. That it is totally fine to talk about it or even laugh about it! I tried to make a very humorous project about this serious subject. I believe that laughing about a negative feeling is already the beginning of a more positive and happy feeling. And when you feel positive and happy with yourself, the right person will come along!

 I guess you could say this project was truly a labor of love.

 Best of luck, you crazy kids!

Noorje put together a charmingly humorous little film on her my knitted boyfriend project, and they life they live together. Give it a view.

A Little Toilet Humor...

 Grandma, it's time to stop.
This just makes me uncomfortable. 
In all of my days, I've never said "You know, the one thing this toilet seat is missing is the sweet caress of rough crochet, preferably, the same crochet that has caressed many other buttcheeks." Not. Once.  
Also, can we discuss the unfortunate color scheme? Yellow and brown. Yellow and brown, blanketing your toilet seat. If that's not an invitation to sit on down and make yourself at home, I don't know what is! 
 Why do I feel like someone's about to get murdered? If ever there was a scene of foreboding and menace, this is it. TP doesn't like you trying to taking his place, little guy. I think you know that already, judging by the look on your... face? He's going to make sure you hang, and not on the... spinny thingy.
But... why?

 I've seen these. These are real life. I've been in houses where they stare at you, stare at you with their dead eyes and skirts full of secrets. And there you are, just sitting there, half naked while Barbs just smiles at you.  Again, uncomfortable.

It's Been A While...

Hello, blogger my old friend. 
I cannot guess how long it's been, 
Since I last posted in this place.
Writing words in cyberspace.
Tales of fashion gone awry
Knits so bad they'll make you cry
But there's a beauty to behold
in crochet shorts and patterns bold
And so, I'm back to write some more
so buckle up, there's lots in store.

My sweet landscape of wrecked and wonderful knitwear. How I've missed you. Oh, how I've missed you! We were never meant to be apart so long. We go together like peas and carrots, Forrest and Jenny, Tom Hiddleston and Myself... wait. (That last one may be unproven, but I'm guessing 100% accurate.)

I googled "Knitted Tom Hiddleston," and BY JOVE there he is in his Henry the Vth kit. Is there anything the sweet, sweet insanity of the internet can't provide? The creator of this piece is obviously talented, and you should check out her crafty custom pieces.

But I digress. Hiddles deserves a post all his own.

Anyway, this won't be a long post, but I wanted to let you know to start expecting good things. Good things like this:

This gives you a whole new perspective on granny squares. Yowza.
