You know, this sweater isn’t bad at all. I do love a basketweave knit. I’m more concerned with this woman’s decision to cinch her outfit at the head.

    ha! i had a sweater exactly like this one. with a turtleneck. it was blue.

    but i never once wore a belt on my head like that. yikes.

    I once made a baby blanket in that pattern and almost that same color. It was very nice as a blanket.

    How did cinching a belt around the model’s head EVER seem like a good idea? How?

  3. Dude, I’m still pissed about the clowns and then you go and post them on the site! Without warning. I can’t even scroll down your page anymore. Evil Bitch. 😉

  4. What a cool headband! I love it!!

    Hmm, she has a look like she’s smiling through the pain, doesn’t she? Or maybe through the fear? Perhaps the photog is actually a zombie, posing as a professional knitting book photog, and has employed the head-belt as a way to measure the yummy brain treats held inside (ala how cannibals act in every Bugs Bunny cartoon). She suspects but does not know FOR SURE what is going on.

    And it is a nice sweater.

    Stitchy, you rock! I almost died trying to stifle my laughter when I saw these knitting patterns (I’m at work – large corporation, no fun allowed). I’m going to look through my old pattern books and see if I can find some fun stuff to send you.

  7. Shannon says:

    I couldn’t stifle the laughter tho I tried! I think the belt hides the scar when they removed her brain!

    Even funnier is that she’s trying to look at the damn forehead belt. Perhaps it holds a secret. Hmmmmmm.

    hmmm, maybe she has a headache? And old friend of mine’s father used to say tie a tie around your head when you have a headache. Maybe she heard somethin’ similar…

    BTW – your comments are wrapping funny.

    The belt helps her communicate with the mother ship.

    OK, the first thing I thought of was Peter Jackson’s first film Bad Taste. Jackson, playing an alien-cannibal hunter, falls off a cliff and loses part of his brains. He put a belt around his head to keep the rest from falling out.

    Perhaps she’s an alien-cannibal hunter?

    I like the sweater – where can I get the pattern?

  13. Pete says:

    Is it me or does it look like a large bra strap on her head?
