I was thinking the same thing. How DO you get in and out of that thing?

I thinking that is it actually knit ON the model, much like Marilyn Monroe's dresses were sewn on her body for a perfect fit.

Now I want to see a knit coccoon!

That's disturbing...

If you actually managed to make it, then get into it, it would be insanely restrictive...no more raising your arms...every time you sat down it would attempt to choke you to death...

With certain types of yarn, you would build up unbelievable amounts of static while walking, then when you tried to climb out of it, it would zap you and try to steal your clothes via static cling...okay, so now I'm just trying to picture my beyond waist-length hair after putting that on, wearing it all day, then taking it off...hmm, tangled, mussed, and static-filled.

You know, the first thing I thought when I saw that picture is exactly how many people actually made that thing.  You know somebody did, and she probably wore it and thought she was just the height of fashion.

Well you see, when you reach a certain level of "knit nuttiness" you are expected to knit your own restraining garments.

Damn. . . now I want a knit straightjacket!

I believe someone made one at one point.  Well, not knitted:

The Interweave Knits Corset Pullover reminded me of a straightjacket; I think that's what I'm thinking of.

I totally agree. That might be why I never really liked that sweater.

And speaking of restraints, this Shawl-thingie reminds me of those finger traps you get at the dollar store. Once you're in, you never get out.

People are on this poncho making craze, and I thought those were pretty awful... but this...this is a travesty of yarn. 
I bet the girl in the pic was just a big sweaty beast after the photo shoot.  Body odor was awful that day in the studio  Tongue
