I’m not sure if I can get behind the knitted boot recently featured on Knitty Gritty. I completely applaud the designer for her daring, and I think it’s totally clever. Cute, even. But I could never wear them. And neither could you, probably. If you’re NOT a knitter, you might get away with it. You know? Fashion-forward, cutting edge. But a Knitter wearing them? Every friend and family member would know that you’d finally gone right around the bend, and you’d never live it down. It’s only a small step from that to making knitted chaps, and that’s just not okay.

Well, since I’ve shown you the cutest thing ever, I’ll show you the toughest thing ever, too:
Five and a half pounds of pirate terror, man. Be afraid, be very afraid.
