Let's say you have a toddler-- a sweet little child for whom you like to knit sweaters.
You love that baby, right?
You want to protect him or her from the scary things in life. . .
. . . the nightmarish things, like, say, blue boogeyman-monsters:
What in the world is that thing? Why was it brought forth into creation, with its donut eyes and sausage nose? Is it a stuffed toy or (*shudder*) a costumed person? Either way, it gives me the creeps-- and because it doesn't appear to be knit or crochet, one has to wonder why it was included in the photo shoot at all.
. . . Creepy.
