Summer colds apparently mean knitting, knitting, and more knitting around here. In keeping with the trend of me making the pattern everyone else was making months ago, I decided I needed a quick project and bought Stefanie's One Skein Wonder pattern. Basically it's a boobholder without the boob-holding-apparatus.
Here is the back view:
The pattern is great and a pleasure to knit. The yarn is, as usual, amazing and like buttah to knit with and wear. Part of me wonders how much use I'll get out of this, though. As someone on Craftster said, if I'm going to wear another layer because I'm cold, I'm not going to wear a cap-sleeved shrug. As I was making this, I heard my mother's voice in my head admonishing me for attempting to wear a sleeveless dress to synagogue. I kept thinking, well, if I never wear this for warmth, at least I can go sleeveless at synagogue now! Of course, since I haven't been to a service in several years, well... not likely.
However, it is cute, and it could be worn for cuteness' sake. Or, as here, it could be worn to cover the pits of a tee shirt that has seen whiter days. I am thinking of making another one, though, a long sleeved version like this one from Craftster.
And I leave you with one more image: the goofy, slightly cross-eyed mirror shot. I told you I make goofy faces when I'm trying to look at the camera. In this case, I was just looking directly at the camera that, you know, was in my hand:
Some guy on Flickr who very urgently wanted me to know he was Arabic did like the cross-eyed look though.Posted by jess at July 24, 2005 3:40 PM
