It’s a fast-topic-changing Friday, but first, a story with a happy ending.
You may have gleaned the fact that I have been fighting with Anne Boleyn (my headless knitwear stunt-double). I was offended by how she was keeping her bedroom in the new house, and when it came to fitting hand knits, she was failing me miserably.
But I realized the source of our problems. While I’ve been on The Divorce Diet, Anne has not. I have neglected her. Anne and I have since spent a little quality time with the tape measure, and we cleared things up. (She is adjustable.)
I should really stop calling it “The Divorce Diet”, and start calling it something more positive like “The Single Gal with an Active Social Life Diet”.
|I would like to take this time to publicly apologize to Anne Boleyn.
From now on, I will try to be a better roommate.
Proof that we are friends again.
|Here she is modeling my latest knit for myself…Basic Black from MagKnits.
Pretty color! Great fit!
|This is the truth. It’s huge. In fact, everything I’ve knit for myself over the last several months fits like this. I’ve been using fancy photo-styling techniques to keep that fact a secret.
I’ve been knitting everything to fit Anne, and she and I were different sizes.
Now that Anne and I are friends once again, this is the LAST ill-fitting sweater that I will knit. I declare it!
|Just because I haven’t been talking much about knitting on verypink doesn’t mean I haven’t been knitting.
Here is a baby dress I designed for The Knitting Nest, made with Babyboo bamboo/nylon yarn.
I’m really happy with it! The free pattern will available soon here on verypink and at The Knitting Nest.
This is Vestee from knitty.com, knit with Fantasy by Dark Horse Yarns.
I am NOT normally one who knits with synthetic fibers…but this is the NICEST acrylic yarn I’ve ever encountered.
|…and after. A rug made a huge difference in my front room.
Little by little, I’m getting this place the way I want it.
|Yeah, I know. I can hardly stand to live with all of this adorableness. It’s exhausting.
Have a great weekend!
