WTF Knits by Gabrielle Grillo, Lucy Sweet
  

Sue Baker's view...

Culled from the Internet, these examples of mad and scarcely believable knitted wonders do seem to have strayed very far from bobble hats and cardies. There seems to be a strong SF influence in the creations like Doctor Spock ears or a Princess Leah hat, someone else has even felt the need to portray an alien dissection – in wool. If you’re not into SF then how about a knitted toilet roll, sadly in plain stitch so not very comfy and hygienic to use or perhaps your dog would like to dress up as a rabbit or your tortoise masquerade as a burger? Knitting really will not seem the same after you’ve looked at the samples on show in WTF Knits.

Synopsis

WTF Knits by Gabrielle Grillo, Lucy Sweet

Forget scarves and bobble hats. Here are some woollen wonders that will really blow your mind...For the last four years, Gabrielle Grillo has been scouring the web for the most bizarre knitted items she can find. In this hysterically funny book, she has collected the very best of her finds. From a knitted Christmas turkey cosy to woolly vomit, they have to be seen to be believed. After you've read WTF Knits and stitched your sides back together, you might just be inspired to dust off your needles, dig out your balls of wool and knit something downright odd yourself.
