Vulgar and amusing at the same time! How do you explain what it is to Finn? A "fancy" coat for his GI joe?


I'm sitting here at my desk at work, sputtering with laughter!!! I have never heard of that kind of "knitwear" :)


This is too funny. LOL


the ribbon badge is gorgeous, i love the colors and especially that he was your relative!

Hurt relative

This couldn't possibly belong to a Allison!! It is much too small!! It belongs to the "teeny,weeny Burke Family"


Hi, I'm just blog hopping, hope you don't mind me looking around, I'll definitely be back :-)


I remember being a teenage and my grandfather got a knitted peter heater at a birthday party for him. It was the most horrifying moment of my life. I did not even want to know that my grandfather had a peter, let alone needed a heater for it. Clarice


OMG, this cracks me up! I never would have dreamed that this even existed. What an interesting em...family heirloom.

Too funny!


So cool.....
Ever need a gift for someone that has everything???
This is just the kinda thing I have been looking for. My Uncle's birthday is coming soon and this will be perfect!
Hmmmm...I wonder what my 93 year old grandma will say when I ask her to make it for me? heehee

You've just given me the best start to the day! Brilliant!


I am trying so hard not to start laughing out loud. I would startle my co-workers. oh sh*t. this is too funny. oh god. i got here from molly chicken.


Oh my Gawd !
That is the most fantastic thing EVER.
: )


OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!how funny.
FYI: It is a crocheted peter heater though not knitted!!!!


No, it's too much. Who ever thought up the idea and can you imagine perfecting the design for it?


Just checked out your latest post and linked back to this...Made my day! I needed a good laugh...
And yes, make sure when you're gone it gets put in the right, ummmmm, hands...hehe.

I am also Colleen Allison---also happen to have a sister named Heather and strangely I am into the same stuff as far as decorating--yard sales and all that good stuff. Many of my family originated in PA--yet I married an Allison from MO and we have lived in KY, NC< St. Louis and now Florida.
Best to you!
