When Craft Goes Wrong

This weekend I spent far too much time at the local thrift store - not thrifting so much - but sitting on the floor laughing - laughing my ass off at the photos and words in the vintage knitting patterns. I spent a weekend camping on my own in Byron Bay years ago and did the same thing - found a thrift shop and went straight to the knitting patterns - the hours just fly by. Oh the joy of a bad pose showing off patterns and colours of an era long gone (hopefully). So this month's 'When Craft Goes Wrong' is brought to us by Patons, thanks Patons!

Men in Misti - Could this be the ultimate test of true love?...that's what it asks in the pattern's blurb! 
Test of true love or not the man with the supposed engineering degree has failed - how can you love a man who doesn't know what to do with his hardhat (it's not a raincatcher sweetie)?
I do like the props in each shot though - binoculars, clipboard, walkie talkie...polaroid camera. Enjoy friends, enjoy!

  1. LOL i wish i found this pattern. i don't know how to knit, i'd just like to laugh at it. at least he's thinking of the environment (catching rain and not making loud drilling noises).
