The publisher wishes to make clear that this is not a book of knitting patterns, but a photographic collection of some of the weird and wonderful things that people have created using needles and wool. The publisher works closely with Amazon to ensure that any book search provides accurate information, and apologises if anyone has bought WFT Knits thinking its contents to be other than photographic and just for fun.

An hilarious photographic collection of the weirdest knits you'll ever see!

Forget scarves and bobble hats. Here are the results of some nutty knitting that will really blow your mind...

For the last four years, Gabrielle Grillo has been scouring the web for the most bizarre knitted items she can find. In this hysterically funny book, she has collected the very best of her finds. From a knitted Christmas turkey cosy to woolly vomit, from burgers to a sperm fertilizing an egg - they have to be seen to be believed.

This is a photographic book of fun - full of weird, wonderful and extremely messed-up knitting and crochet creations from around the globe. As you flick through, there'll be a smile on your face and one question on your lips: 'WTF were they thinking?'
