Knit Your Own Leggings! (Only don’t, please. We implore you.)


OK, that’s it knitters, we’ve had enough: we want you to come out with the knitting needles above your heads… That’s right, keep ’em where we can see ’em. And the high-waisted knitted leggings? In the fugly colours? We want you to bring them out too. Now we never want to speak of this matter ever again…

(Thanks to Jen for the report!)

    I bet if they had a dress over them they wouldn’t look half so bad.

    Yes, tops tucked into leggings is probably not a good look

    Unless you are making these for someone who is going camping in the Alaskan wilderness, NO.

    These are bad. Very bad.
    How could these go so wrong when we all know that knit leggings can work – see Missoni Autumn Winter 09. Nice.
