Just when we thought we'd seen every item that could ever possibly come from two needles and some yarn, along comes the Gnome Beard.
Right? We thought knitted gifts had reached some sort of craft-cool zenith with the portable coffee cozy. But here, from Foamywader, we have an actual knitted beard, made of a wool/acrylic blend, complete with little ear holes to make wearing a snap.
Somebody you know needs this. Or at least will wear it, with flair and good humor, at the holiday table. It's $35, and aside from its novelty, we're betting it is quite warming to the lower face in colder climes.
The question is, if you already have a beard, will you wear this beard? Too meta? Can anything be too meta?
