Ugly sweaters making a comeback

(WVLT/CNN) -- Call Anne Marie Blackman's creations the most garish you've ever seen and she'll know she did her job well. She's the Killington, Vermont crafter behind "My Ugly Christmas Sweater."

She outfits a strange but wildly popular trend: folks wearing the tackiest clothes imaginable to their christmas parties.

She looks all over for gently-used sweaters and sometimes adds her own embellishments for extra gaudiness.

Blackman ships thousands worldwide for about $35 up to $80 for more intricate designs.
