bah!  sure it is!  go on, give it a try.... hot wash, cool rinse, a dash of dish soap... and run it through twice (maybe three times)!  with jeans or something.  I did it.  It does work.  Really, it does.  :-)

...of course, a laundromat is also a good idea...

Okay, you're on to me! I'm lazy okay? And impatient! But I will give my frontloader another try.
Boobie pillow, eh? I know a few guys who'd probably love one...  Cheesy

What about Fugly knits? Knitting something with that hideous acid green  squeaky acrylic your gran donated to you. Or that shaggy dark brown "hippy wool" that is too uneven in ply to use for any pattern. And I'm sorry but I list the poodle toilet roll covers and bottle covers in that "fugly" list. Also anything knitted from that stretchy nylon ribbon stuff.  Tongue

How about freeform?  It's a great way to use up odd bits and it ends up to be kind of like a story of what you've made.  (sorry if someone already posted this.)

I don't think anyone has. I like the idea of freeform, but I worry that I will just end up with an incoherent mess. I really like the idea  of picking  up stitches from any part of your original shape and just adding to it in an organic kind of process.

actually I'm all over the cosies, I have some MAD cozies patterns that I'm dying to try out! (now to get a teapot.. minor details of course...)

While I appreciate freeform as medium for artistic expression, truth be told I can't see me actually WEARING anything freeform.. however for freeform disasters, you can't go by the classic ones on www.threadbared.com *chuckles*

Freeform is an awesome idea and super fun to do. I'm halfway done with a freeform purse I've been working on and have had a blast making it so far. It would be great to see the monstrosities people could come up with!

I love the idea of freeform, I've never actually tried it before, but would love to!  But I think it would be better suited to an ongoing knit-a-long perhaps, that we could all have fun with, instead of compete. I don't know if anyone else would like that idea.

SlickMariaVic, when you finish your freeform pics can you send me pics? I'm really interested in how it turns out..

Knit graffiti - Because even door handles, and utility poles deserve to be warm.  http://www.knittaplease.com/Tag.html

Not meant to be knit - Like a bicycle.  Life-sized.  Wink

Go knit yourself - Like SNBN's 'knit your own rockstar' pattern, but make it look like you.

And this one deserves an explanation.  My teacher me what I could knit: socks?  yes.  shoes?  ...maybe.  pants?  I've been dying to!  Like lay around the house pants, so...

Who knits the pants in your family?

I'm not really clear on what "freeform" means.... Huh

What about Fugly knits?

Haha...I love this idea.  And this is the first thing that came to mind: http://www.berroco.com/247.254/247/247_frances_pv_lg.html

I'm with you taped_on_wings about the sheer fugliness of that outfit. I mean, my retinas are still aching after the fact.


I love the fact that fugly knits embraces every item, be it tea cosy, socks, tops, even balaclavas as people who have read stitchymcyarnpants will testify.
