You…light up my liiiiiiife….

Just in case you need a little inspiration on the last minute Christmas knitting. Why not jazz up that boring Norwegian sweater with a bit of fun fur to light up the evening and sing karaoke for you? You, too, with Scooby Doo, can dance with the stars.

Okay, searching Ebay for Christmas sweaters was a joke. Little did I know that there was a competition for who could type UGLY in their header the biggest and loudest. This one begs the question: is it pre-Cindy Lou Who?

I am totally bowed over by this one. (So *that’s* what you do with the string of lights you could never get untangled!) But whoever designed this one was definitely having a ball.

Sacrilege! (A red sweater is seldom “boring”.) Thank you for the first good laugh of the day.

There’s a woman in Vermont, featured on local TV last week, who has started an “ugly Christmas sweater” business. Wonder if it’s the same one you are talking about.

I wanted a back view of that last sweater. Were there balls hanging from the back, or did they figure you would be sitting in a corner and didn’t need decorations on the back–like the Christmas tree? But if there were balls on the back, you would certainly have to sit up straight.

All I can say is “OY!”

Wow – gives new meaning to “ugly!”

I agree with Jody. Ugly sweaters are not for me, thank you.

Well, whack me with a tennis racket and cover me in clay, that is ugly.

What blew my mind was that the Grinch sweater was going for $45! Really?!

Comment by Serena Rother 12.07.10 @ 5:08 pm

I don;t think I’d wear on (really… something like that in a 6 or 7XL ? )
But I’d have a great time making them and giving them to relatives LOL. The gift that keeps on giving, every year.. when they’d have to wear it.. or at least consider wearing it :-}
I’m the eldest, so I get away with a LOT.
