PornStache mug cozy by  Knot workshop

Lego Keyboard by Beta Time

Knit beard hat by Poor Girl Couture

Knit heart and ovaries by An Optimistic Cynic

Sometimes I like to scroll through Etsy for stuff that are effed up someway. Take for instance the knit ovaries. Really? And then I like to see things that I contemplate ordering like the knit beard hat. It’s like super cozy and excellent for bank robbing! Seriously, though, I see a trend in the knit department- it’s like knitting is the new medium for all things kitsch. I guess anybody can knit and and you can take the project with you like on the subway sitting next to a man who is  sitting in a box.  I threw in a little lego keyboard that I thought was awesome!

Enjoy!

PS- I would have my tea or coffee without cream when that cozy is on the mug! Just sayin’!

Where, oh, where did Yang Du come from?! We must share the same brain! These cartoon dresses are beyond awesome and yes, I would wear them all day, even to a funeral. My favorite have to be the cartoon eyes in the first photo and of course, the Batman dress. Fluffy, knit lion fingers have to be the funnest ever! Flipping the bird would take on a softer message. By the way, the eye makeup on the models is pretty rad, too. So, Yang Du is pretty hard to find and I seriously would like one of those dresses. Checkout his earlier collections below. Pretty fupe, huh? I’d totally sit next to that old lady on the bench and chat about cats.

Call your resident gimp because I just found the beautifullest winter ensemble- a head to toe knit mohawk suit! It’s by Sibling London and they also have the coolest knit sweaters that any serious punk rocker would swoon for. No seriously, I love these cool knitwear, especially the one with “PUNK” written like that Robert Indiana statue. This must be a Johnny Rotten sponsored show. Even though these are for men, I would totally wear it all “burning down the house” style…. except the girlfriend from hell sweater.. that would be completely inaccurate.

Japanese designer  Yuliya Wim Merlin creates whimsical knit creations that would make a cold, gloomy day smile. Being a fan of unique knitwear, Yuliya’s designs stood out from the rest of the ho-hum knitwear you see in some stores. I think the sushi sweater is brilliant, especially the 3D aspect of it. I would totally wear the piano dress to a fancy ballet recital or  something. The cherry dress looks very rockabilly and Betsey Johnson- ish.  Check out her Etsy shop. Can’t wait forSweataWheatha“!

Fam Irvoll‘s Spring 2011 was  fantabulous, as usual! I love when colorful-meets-cute-meets-effed-up. I did a post a while back on Fam and I raved about her 3-D mouse sweater. She is definitely the best thing to come out of Norway. Actually, I don’t know anything that came out of Norway , except Vikings and that nasty fish dish called Lutefisk. So yeah, Fam Irvoll takes the cake. What I love is the models’ makeup looking like a Roy Lichtenstein comic book girl. Click here for directions from MAC to recreate that look. You’ll need instructions so you don’t look like the 186th  Duggar child. Anyway, I wish I could wear a conversation bubble on my head. I would keep several for any situation, like “Eff you” or “STFU” or “Can I haz your wallet?” or “Are U Serious??” or… I’ll stop. This way I don’t have to waste my voice, you know? And yes, I went to the School of Beeatch– my counselor was Naomi Campbell. I still don’t have the heart to throw my precious iPhone at anyone , though. *sigh* I love all these looks except the buck-teeth on the dress needs to get sanded down. I think buck teeth are suddenly in, though. Exhibit A. In any case, I wear them all!

MA Antwerp graduate Nathalie Fordeyn designed a fascinating collection called, “A Drummer In A Tree”. More like “A Q-tip in an Ear”. (I’ll show my way out…) Anyway, I find this collection refreshing because who knew grandma’s sweaters would look so cool wrapped around your head like a fishbowl? Personally, I’m a fan of knit-wear even though California weather never lets me unleash my knit collection, like ever. I can totally appreciate the time and energy to make these bulbous pieces. I’m digging the dome skirts, but fear that they may make my legs look thick. That’s the problem with knitwear, you have to be super skinny to wear it or you’ll just look like a cat lady from Minnesota that cites peanut butter as their favorite ‘food’. Having said that, I’d totally wear the second to the last photo in a blizzard.

Collectif France Tricot knits some of the coolest stuff for random objects and people. Check out their knitted face masks for the Butterfaces of the world. I personally love the MAC laptop cover! Although, I can imagine the computer overheating with that. Computer says No. With the holiday season around the corner, your grandmothers are knitting FUG sweaters as you read this. Maybe you can conveniently show them this post to get some crafty ideas that you may actually like- like a wolf mask. That may freak out the grannies, though, with the Little Red Riding Hood situation and all.
