Krafty Korner

You guys have been pretty lucky. I haven't done any crafty posts since the Great Plarn Fixation of early 2008, so I feel slightly less guilty dropping this deuce on you.

So to speak.

I try not to blatantly steal stuff from the blogs I read, but this is too good not to recycle. Jessica at Rose-Kim Knits has a weekly feature she calls "Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?", showcasing the most ridiculous knitted and crocheted items she can find on the interwebs. Usually it's guaranteed to be a head-shaking, JFCWTF-worthy good time, but today's featured item had me clapping and squeeing like a little girl.

Behold the ultimate toilet roll cover:

I smell Christmas gifts!

A quick search revealed this is a creation of AuntieElle*. She's promised the pattern is forthcoming. I can't wait! I'll have to cruise through the Goodwill to score some abandoned Barbies. Actually, any action figure would work, but there's something about seeing Barbie pinching a loaf that really makes it, IYKWIM.

Evil Twin has already requested hers in sage green.

* You can see more pix there.


  1. That is awesome! You should hold a contest and give one away for a prize. Or, you know, just put me on your Christmas list ....

  2. Hello, thanks for linking to my toilet roll design. :) And yes, the pattern is now up. Cheers!
