Like.. Oh MY GAWD!! That's like tohtally Grody to the Max!..Like, You Know?!Oh sweet gods in heaven!Please, don't let this stuff come back around.. Please.. God No!
I was laughing... until the catWhat's the US version of the RSPCA? That woman should be locked up for cruelty to animals and crimes against fashion!
Fabulous commentary! The cat was the capper. There isn't a word in Yiddish beyond schmata that can capture any of these heinous crimes.
Omigod! i saw that bikini sweater pattern in a second-hand book shop last week and laughed so hard i cried and freaked out the store owner... how very coincidental."Don't have a waste or freaky orange tan? crochet yourself one!"*wipes tears from eyes
The woman holding the cat looks a little concerned, as well she should since the bundled cat is ready to claw her eyes out.
I love the picture of the cat!!! The woman looks like she is sacrificing it to some cult god.
You really need to post a disclaimer when you do these sorts of posts: "Please wear your Depends and do not drink whilst reading!".
I think I just aspirated my tea. Oh my God that is hilarious. That cat looks so pissed off to be cozied up in that nightmare. The "overalls" and knitted tan and bikini are priceless.
Oh my God, that poor cat.
Someone should call the ASPCA to report a vicious act of animal cruelty. That poor cat. But I may keep that in mind for the next time my cat decides to spray my $300 Coach bag!
Marvelous. You've outdone yourself! Or maybe it's that I was wearing those legwarmers mid-80's... And that poor cat!
Thanks for leaving the cat for last. I could barely contain myself through this post. What were people thinking. Hideous, just hideous.Tanya
OMG! Coffee shooting out my nose, I'm laughing so hard! Knitted cat cozy! EEP!
OMFG!!! Although the rest of it was so amusing and made me glad that I was so young in the 80's, The Cat Sack™ was the shocker!
Oh, that cat is so PISSED! Excellent examples of 80's "fashion" :)
I thought my hats for cats was bad, OMG! I can't stop laughing over that cat! Thanks so much for the laughs!
That. Poor. Cat.OMG, I have to make one now...
I love the look on the cat's face: "just let me get a paw free, bitch, then you'll pay."Do not anger the cat, they have a long mind for vengence.
Oh that poor cat. lmao
Oh, come on, you all! Stitchy pasted those cat parts into the photo. No cat's but is so big as to fill that woman's hand! Funny as heck!
That cat...someone ought to be arrested. As should the designer of the bikini top. Maybe not the other people...I think I sported a few of those sweaters in the 80s.
who does that to a cat? Poor little thing.Love the blog.
Hhehhehhhhe. You've done it again. Especially the CAT!!
Holy crap, I just drenched my keyboard
OMFG!!!!!!!All Hail Stitchy!!!
Who's up for a Cat Cozy KAL?
That looks just like my cat -- for the life of me, I do not know how they got that cat into that and lived to take the picture.
I've wet myself! i have!! i'm menopausal and that's my excuse and i'm damn well sticking to it!!!Where do you get them from?i've laughed until the tears ran down my legs TeHe....That cat!!! resident evil or what??? and booby button woman...crikey i daren't even risk one eye to look at her..she'd have your eye out! i think she'd forgot to remove the cornplasters she was using for her " no bra" photo shoot!!ROFL
Was cocaine the drug of choice in the 80s in order to accomplish all that knitting or is all that knitting the result of all the cocaine?I'm seeing a definate connection though.
Maybe the cat was on coke as well....Laughing till I cried, I haven't done that for such a long time, I'd forgotten how painful it is to laugh so hard. Thanks for reminding me Stitchy. Top bloggin'
Way too funny, esp. the cat! And yes, the 80's were a bad fashion time for everyone...
You'd NEED those popeye arms to HAUL that first sweater out of the washing machine!!! It must weigh 2 tons when wet. You'd be dragged to at least your knees if you got caught in the rain.
Okay, so first I thought I was having some sort of flashback, but the laughing and the fear of wetting myself snapped me out of it. So awesome! Where did you find these pics? The bikini sweater???? WTF???? The t-shirts were bad enough, but you know, those were purchased on a whim at the beach or the amusement park, but to choose that pattern, buy the yarn and actually KNIT IT?????? Oh. Yeah. I'm not a cat person, but the picture of the homicidal cat in the cat bag (with convenient tail opening) made me snork and nearly choke on my supper. Then, it made me want to adopt that cat just to get it out of that horrible living situation!!!!Nicely done!
It's a combo cat bed/litter box. Too much.
HA HA HA !!! That's too stinking funny!Someone needs to explain to that designer what the term "catsuit" really refers to. Because that ain't it!Amy
*snerk*Fauxveralls . . .*snork* *giggle**tinkle tinkle*(that's me wetting my pants)julia fc
the cat. the cat, the cat, the cat.you owe me a new keyboard.
I think I hyperventilated ... by the time I got to the cat I was SCREAMING. What a fright - I oughta know - "Class of '87" whyaahYou have a literary gift, and could write a book, or a sit com script! sigh, that was great and horrific... I'm so confused.
So the twisted designer who came up with the cat thing ... do you think there were multiple fittings to get the sleeves lengths correct? Seriously though, this picture proves that there's more to knitting photography than lighting and focus ... there's not being crazier than a loon.
Holy crap are you funny!!! You just gave the biggest laugh this morning, thanks SO much! BTW, you should have posted a warning that when you click on the JLO link, she will start SINGING at you!
I agree that the designer of the cat-sack should be locked up in an acrylic straight jacket, but have we all forgotten about that poor bridesmaid and flower girl? Talk about cruel and unusual punishment.
Oh. My. God.My mom has that issue of Knitters with the cat abomination. I'm so glad I didn't start knitting again until the late 80's. Of course, the 70's were bad enough.
Stunned. Floored. Speechless.Okay - not entirely speechless. That poor cat. That poor, poor cat. I mean, that poor cat!
Ok. I was, like, remembering something I had? that was just like that? and that? and omigawd! -- that? Feeling like my best fashion years were behind me when I saw the cat....Jolted back to the present and glad to be here. Except, I really do miss my garter stitched-so-that-it-looks-like-chenille maid/little house on the praire apron. Really.
First off, your opening paragraph made me want to go find a "Best of Culture Club" CD. Secondly, I have to hang my head in shame because I think the overall vest is kinda cute.
you're nuts.and can i just say how happy i am to have not recognized any of those garments as something i might have knitted up in the 80's!and that cat thing ... a tragedy
That cat is PISSED!!
You had me at the commentary on the legwarmer trio, but the cat sack forced the coffee out my nose. Photoshopped or not, that pic is priceless. Sick and priceless.
Oh my gosh! I almost died. I think I shot diet coke out my nose like Carrie. That cat is killer!
I laughed until I cried!!! Freakin' hysterical.
It was all good till I got to the cat. Unbelievable. Is that for real?!?
The cat! OMG, if just getting a cat into a regular carrier is risky, how the heck did they get that ticked off cat into that thing?! (Umm...Stitchy...I hate to be picky, but...is there a MOKS Vol. VI?)
Stitchy,Please, so I can have the experience of simultaneously laughing til my face hurts and losing control of my bladder, WRITE A BOOK about all the MOKS! You know there's plenty of material out there.I gotta go lie down...
Those pictures are so funny!! Those bridesmaid dresses! Oh, man.
That woman holding the cat seems... tense. I think deep down she knows that if she let herself start screaming, she'd never be able to stop.
Oh my God. Oh. My. God. HA!Ya notice the cat's hind legs aren't visible? Only the tail? Poor, poor creature!
