Somewhere out there, we imagine, is the ugliest sweater ever created. Its heinous, misshapen form was lovingly brought to life by wrinkly arthritic hands that knitted each clash-colored thread, jingly bell, and strobe-light reindeer nose just so. The back causes car accidents; the front scares children.
That's the sweater you'll need for Practical Art's Ugly Sweater Christmas Party. Not only will you revel in others' revulsion at your sweater as you enjoy Christmas music and sweet holiday-themed treats, but you also could win a $50 gift card, awarded by the handcrafted goods store to the person with the gnarliest threads.
Practical Art decks their halls for the free Ugly Sweater Christmas Party from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, December 5, at 5070 North Central Avenue. Call 602-264-1414 or visit www.practical-art.com for more. Zachary Fowle
