Lacking A BeDazzler, There’s Always Crochet

Do we need to start crocheting saddle covers? Clearly, horse body suits can be done. Personally I’m leaning toward bubble wrap body suits for horses: cut to fit, hot glue seams, voilà! A horse that can pop bubbles when it rolls, yet will have some protection from being a horse.

 

This is from Daisy, humorous, but also a masterwork of knitting (and humane taxidermy) by Rachel Denny:

(Because I called in sick to the blog, I can rationalize putting up a whacko post as just dropping by with goofiness.  It doesn’t have to be a real post.)

    As much as I love to crochet, all I could think when I saw the pics was YUCK. I think I’d definitely have to pass on those patterns.
    Side Note: That bike cover (in spite of it’s buttugliness) had to have been fairly tricky to make. Somebody’s pretty darn talented with a hook, although I think it’s painfully obvious that their aesthetic sense is seriously handicapped :o)

    The top photo reminds me, one year we had a challenge at the barn, to see who could make the most interesting/useful thing out of baling twine. Katherine won, hands down, making crocheted grocery bags. If you’d never seen baling twine, you’d never know what they were made of.
