Well, I gave my mother a novelty tea cosy that I'd knitted for her birthday. Yes it's a cooked turkey with holes for the handle and spout of the tea pot and totally cosy in acrylic yarn and washable too. But can you guess what she did with it?
She sewed the holes up and wore it as a Novelty Christmas Hat to her community center christmas party!
Worse than that! She actually won a bottle of whiskey for "silliest hat of the evening"!
What a cheek!
I've never won anything for my knitting!
