Fringe Theory

I have a theory.  It goes a little something like this:

A crocheter's or a knitter's level of skill is inversely proportional to the likelihood of his/her knitting or crocheting a garment composed almost entirely of fringe.

Fringe has the benefit of hiding any number of flaws, which can be alluring to a beginner.  But then there's the downside of fringe-based clothing-- namely, that you usually end up looking something like this:

Fringe.  In its place, it's a thoroughly acceptable way to add a little pizazz to your knitting or crochet project.  You could even say that it's a time-honored tradition.  However, if you don't exercise a little restraint, your hard work might end up resembling the shaggy pelt of an abominable snowman.
