Ask Poops, Please

Putting my two cents in.

Born and bred in a small New England town, I am convinced that I know something about everything, and that my opinion matters. If only to me. Well, you'll see what I mean. And I love to knit, so you'll see what kind of things I'm doing when I should be vacuuming the living room.

It's Dress Your Daughter Like a Whore Day!

Or that's what it looks like if you use the girls' 7-14 section at Kohl's as a barometer. Great balls of butter on toast, the last time I saw fashion that trashy was before they cleaned up 42nd Street. Oof. Looks like we'll be be school shopping at Oshkosh this year.
I managed to get some more pictures to load. Wanna see?

First is a baby sweater. It is a simple raglan top-down cardigan with a seed stitched border on the collar, cuffs, and hem. It's made from Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere and it is lovely to feel. And machine washable, apparently. It's a gift for a new boy baby. Very masculine, no?

I made a second one of those quilted lattice hats and nope, it wasn't a fluke. It's a good pattern. I shall write it up. I'm making a third one right now with purple and yellow this time. And I'm seriously going to go up to Joanns and clean them out of this stuff. I LOVE it! Best baby yarn ever, I think.

And finally, how 'bout some homespun? This was handpainted roving from handpaintedyarn.com. I can't begin to describe the softness. It's poofy. Like a cloud. Like a baby's butt. Like...something really poofy. It's a gift for my SP, and if it was something--anything--but a sockweight yarn, I'd keep it for myself. But it's too light for my use, and I picked the purple just for her, so off it goes.

That's all. I'm glad I got that off my chest.

Oooh, pretty yarn! And that's a very cute baby sweater.

I don't know what it is with the hoochie clothes. Have you seen those baby tees that say clever things like Porn Star on them? Most of the clothes for teens or younger I see these days look like they should have Hooker in Training on them. Also gives a whole new meaning to training pants, I tell you!

Seeing those clothes like that out there, makes me so happy my daughter wears school uniforms and only likes jeans/tshirts. Yes, we do have problems when we need dress clothes too, she doesn't even like them!

Love the hat, cannot wait for that pattern! Great job on the sweater too! Lovely homespun there!

I really don't understand the whole prostitot fashion thing, but I have a sneaking suspicion it involves those Bratz dolls. Gah.

The handspun is gorgeous! It looks like I could cuddle up with it and fall asleep. And the color is so pretty, too!
