Magic Mushroom?

The Yolk Sweater still looks like a brown circle, and continues to grow.



I am still knitting this damn brown alpaca round and round and round, with a keen sense of déjà vu because that is exactly what I did with the frogged Union Square Market sweater. It makes for fabulous late night knitting, when I get home from work and it’s 2am and I just need to wind down enough to realize that I’m really quite tired.

I was walking past Marc Jacobs on my way to work yesterday and I noticed something eye catching in the window…



The Kublakhan (mushroom?) hat. For a mere $400 this hat could be yours! I’m not even going to go into my little issues about spending $400 on a hat that does anything less than enable the wearer to fly and simultaneously turn handguns into prosciutto and cheese panini. Instead, I’ll just point out that this hat looks pretty simple to knit. I am tempted, but I worry that I'll look like a portobello.

damn, with one skein of bulky yarn the cost of making that hat would be like $6! Sell it yourself and make a $396 profit!

that's a ridiculous amount of money for a hat! god, i am in the wrong line of work.

That's crazy expensive! I'm stunned. I agree with Steph, maybe we should change careers. Damn!
Good progress on the brown loop!

There better be $399 some how woven into that hat because $400 is WAY too much money for a hat that any knitter worth his/her salt could knit in an hour.

Dear Fashion Industry,

You continue to be completely reeeediculous.

Love,

Seriously, $400? Is it made of the hair of an extinct wooly mammoth or something?
