Hi, my name is Undecided.

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

Granny Square shirt

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!

And to head off in 2008!

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:

a hat apparently (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 painful....

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!
