Why eek? Well, just look at this! Ericka Jo found this in a thrift store for just $5. Why did she buy it? Well, would you have believed her if she said she'd found a designer crocheted sweater composed completely of teddy bears? If this had been child sized, then it might have been cute. However, intended for an adult it is pretty scary. Get a load of the one on the upper left hand side with the patriotic bib! It appears that there just weren't enough bears on the front as if you turn it around the solid back is decorated with two bears holding hands that are directly over the right buttock. EEEK!

Now for the squeal of joy. Here is the completely crocheted scarf for the International Scarf Exchange. I'm really pleased with the result. Now I just have to screw up my courage and block it to remove that weird one sided curve I mentioned in a previous post. Wish me luck!

It's vocab time! The oppisite of "eek" is "squee". Eek is to scared as squee is the elated.

The scarf brings about a "squee!"

Love the scarf!

I have to confess, I would have bought the sweater, too. I have a fondness for tacky, kitschy handcrafts. You should see some of the beadwork pieces I've collected!

That might just be the most terrifying sweater I have ever seen. But that's quite an accomplishment, so it deserves to be saved :)

Good luck with the blocking! I absolutely adore blocking, myself, I block EVERYTHING I knit, so I'm sure it will turn out fine.
