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!

SO who has the fug now? I saw it pass hands but didn't see who the lucky recipient was.

Readers I have to tell you that the fug in person is a mountain of awful - photos just don't do it justice! Can't wait to add my piece.

And Amy - you really do win the good sport of all time award for putting that thing on in public.

I have the fug! You bet I have the fug!

(sung to that "We have the funk" song from the commercial with the kids doing the robot. I've been singing that all weekend!)

IT'S ALIIIIIIIIIIVE! Oy! I thought we'd seen the last of the FUG at when it was at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. Yet, she lives on???
