When Seafood and Knitwear Meet

This picture appeared in my Facebook newsfeed this morning. A lobster wearing knitwear.


It appeared to be from an Asian page. I have no idea why the lobster is wearing a sweater and mitts. Maybe he’s cold. Maybe it’s a disguise from the Asian seafood market. I don’t know.


I know that it’s my favourite animal dressed in knitwear photo to date.


Is it wrong that it bothers me the sweater is wrong side out though? I’m choosing to believe it’s a fashion choice, but it must be hard for a lobster to put on a sweater wearing mittens. I’ll cut him some slack.


Happy Friday!

She’s a Funny One

A few weeks ago I had the urge to knit a hat for my youngest niece. She’s not quite old enough to be oh-so-specific about what her favourite colour is and little kid hats are a quick, fun, and easy knit. I have a pattern I love: Baby It’s You. It’s part of a card set I received as a…

Heart Palpitations

A couple of weeks ago I stumbled across the pattern for Palpitations. It seemed like a fun quick knit for Valentine’s Day and a chance to use up some left over yarn.  As an added bonus, I could use them to decorate a tree in our office. I started knitting; finished three; and got the flu. For some reason these…
