a flyfront cannot be added to these.

Wasn't it just yesterday I was complaining about the heat and peeling off my pants the minute I walked in the door? That link doesn't really go to a photo of me peeling my pants off, I just wanted to see if you'd click it. Fall really snuck up on me and I'm fine with that.

I'm looking forward to making more casseroles and knitting more scarves. I even thought about branching out and trying to knit something a little more interesting, like a scarflet or neckwarmer. But it turns out (I have no idea why I'm surprised about this, given my past experience with online research), a search for "free scarflet pattern" results in some really terrifying imagery.

If the movie Life Is Beautiful were re-shot on location in 1992 Portland, Oregon, this could be a still frame.

Also, this is dead serious:
This angora neck cuff for men is priced at $165, which is pri-tty spendy, considering I found a whole OUTFIT for $51.99. I sort of feel bad driving traffic to their website, knowing they are not kidding around about their angora, but you have to admit it's ridiculous. And not a little bit creepy. It's moments like this I wish I wasn't such a visual thinker.

I never intended this blog to be a collection of sarcastic product reviews, but somehow it just happens. Forgive me?

Forgiven! But, only if you pose just as serious as these models once you make your neck sweater.

There are some pretty amazingly horrible things out there to knit. Try "cowl" or "smoking ring." I knit myself one from knitty.com and haven't decided if I feel funny wearing it or not. I'll decide when its paired with my pea coat and not cordory jacket.

with all this angora, am i the only one who thinks of About a Boy when Will says: "As for his mum, she appeared to be clinically insane, and wearing some kind of yeti costume"?

OMG. Angora high waisted cuff panites... there are no words.

No are there any words for the guy in the brown and white angora sweater. I personally would love the $654 pants.

And now I am rethinking making angora scarflettes for the loved ones in my life. Maybe for the people that a secretly dislike....

I love your blog!
