OMG you guys! Do you remember that famous scene in Annie Get Your Gun where Annie Oakley sat down for three days and crocheted a full length ball gown with fringe so she could go rope some cattle??!!??
Yeah, me neither.
Well opossums, I’ve come to the conclusion that my Saturdays are getting a bit hectic and I am finding that I have less time to devote to Sad Patterns on the weekends; therefore, I have made a decision!
We will no longer be examining a particular subject on Saturday; instead, we will move it to Monday because frankly, I said so.
I have no clever name for this feature, so let’s pretend that I came up with something hilarious and laugh so hard we pee a little.
Having said that…
Nothing says “this time of the year” like reindeer.
They are magical creatures that help Santa haul a butt-load of toys around the world and, let’s face it, they are cheap labor and will more than likely, never form a union and picket the jolly old
But, remember what site you’re on.
Reindeer are a little expensive this time of year, so in an effort to operate within our .47 cent, yearly budget, we’ve settled on some reindeer that don’t have the optional antler feature.
So, saddle up and rope them doggies, ’cause every MONDAY in December, Sad Patterns is yelling:
You know what this image needs? COLOR!
That’s MUCH better!
SAD PATTERNS PRESENTS:

Bob loved entertaining at Christmas time, but what Bob loved more, was getting hammered on the spiked eggnog and dancing naked on the coffee table to Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”
This book is a veritable treasure trove of knitted and crocheted nightmares.
Take a look at what passes for elephants in this trippy “knit one, purl one” universe.
Now, I don’t know who Caroline M. Staples is, but the elephants she observed when designing these patterns must have been huge cocaine addicts to render eyes like that!
