    As to what the f**k it is--maybe a poject to teach multi-color knitting? At least it's great for a laugh and I won't feel so bad the next time I have a project that turns out differently than expected.

  24. Lord have mercy, I want it. I shall stuff it with fiber fill and strap it in my passenger seat so that I can travel discreetly in the HOV lanes of Houston, Texas. Pary I don't get shot.

  25. Well, there are about four pieces that, on their own, would be stand-out great. You COULD wear the mohawk mask when you go skiing. A vest, a turtleneck, and some leggings/pants. Unless it's a bodysuit.
