In a shocking twist unforseen by the knitting world, a crime against fashion was perpetrated this weekend by superstar Amy R. Singer. She was photographed during an appearance at Loop wearing this... erm... ensemble.

Clearly, it started to affect Amy's behavior after a few moments.

Here, it would appear it had taken over her mind enough to convince her that she could fly.

No one seemed to know what could have possessed such a normally stylish, lovely woman to appear in public wearing such hideousness. However, our sources indicate that the blame lies squarely with her stylist for the appearance, one known only as "trillian42", seen here forcing a reluctant Amy into the creation.

Later sightings of Ms. Singer indicate that she was no longer wearing the offending item, so we can only hope that this was a bout of temporary insanity brought on by ridiculous humidity and an invading horde of Knittyboarders.

- Big, big thanks to Buttercup for the pictures, since I'm a lameass and never got my camera out all weekend, and unbelievably HUGE thanks to Amy for being such an amazingly good sport. I owe you big for this!

It appears when you are "styling" Amy with the Fug it is actually hurting her. All that acrylic is scratching her. :)

Bah. That's 100% Cotton on the Muppet Raper portion. Very soft. And decidedly non-wool. I'm pretty sure that the cape portion has no wool in it either.

My God I wish I coulda been there for that photoshoot.

I think you should put your nosering to better use and hang a wee sign from it saying, "I KNIT...BACK THE *&#@&$ OFF!"

Poor Amy! To recover from surgery to be subjected to a WntW WIP? (Assuming it's not a FO.)
Too funny!
