Media Mail 2: Wild Knitting

Wild Knitting.  Yes, it is quite wild.
 There're animal carcasses.  That armadillo blowing in the breeze is definitely wild.
There are wild clowns on the loose.  Get those crazy loons locked back up!  
 There's...holy dress holes, Batman!  There's side boobage!  Definitely wild.
Okay, okay, so the book was published in 1979, so there has to be some sort of disco reference in it, right?  

The thing that really made me gasp and agree that this is the wildest book on knitting I will ever encounter is the following...
 Seriously.  I took the Lord's name in vain and that is not something I do lightly.  Well, that's a lie.  I do that all the time, because I am a heathen, but this photo had my Puritan ancestors quaking in their graves!

I really don't understand what is going on in this photo?  Is she in a brothel?  Why is he leering over her like that?  Ack!  Is she even alive...her eyes seem sort of dead!  Double Ack!

So wild.  But then there were some un-wild things, like this toucan hat for your kid:
That's pretty cute.  Needs some better colors, but it's still cute.  And if I could knit, I would definitely make duck feet:
Or tiger feet.  So much fun!

Thank you, again, Brain, for a fabulous treat!  This book was so great to look through!
