Hey, I am all about the fiber arts and weaving can be just beautiful. Unfortunately, there is no “beautiful” weaving in this book. In fact, I am pretty sure this book should be burned in some kind of cleansing ritual since there are detailed instructions on how to weave a clown wall hanging. As you know, any clown themed decorating is the work of the devil.

The other projects are pretty awful as well. The last photo seems to be some kind of abstract mustache/mouth thing.

  1. I… think I crocheted a maxi-skirt in 1974 using just exactly the horrible yarn colors on the cover, with the addition of the missing 70s color, goldenrod yellow. It was acrylic yarn, too, horrid to work with.

    We were all a little mad back then, I think…
