You know it's summer when memes are going round. In my case, Jen tagged me with the "8 things about you" meme. Since I already did the 7 things about me a while ago, I thought I might get away with adding no. 8 to the already existing list.
8. I like nighties. Yes, I may be goth, and I may wear velvet and lace most of the time, but when it comes to sleepwear, I have a deep-seated love for the comfy, cuddly and frumpy. To quote Mr. Batty: "If it ain't flannel, you ain't got it."
So true. Long flannel nightgowns that are several sizes too big, comfy PJs, and cotton nighties for the summer. Here's my new current favorite. Don't those clouds look like they're up to something?
This one has been around for so long, I'm not sure who has or hasn't done it yet. But if you think it would be fun to tell us 8 things about yourself... go ahead, I know I'm always curious!
Mr. Batty is at work, so I tried to take another picture of my hair. There are only 5 or 6 extensions, and they're towards the front. It's so hard to get a good picture of hair this long! I had to hold out the camera, and now that I see how it makes my arm look all flabby...
Better post it before I decide to delete the whole thing.
Oh, and long hair really is easier to care for. I wash and let it air dry. My dad keeps suggesting I cut it short again, but when I had a chin length bob, I had to spend half an hour in front of a mirror because there were cowlicks I hadn't even known existed. Now? Wash and I'm done. I love it.
In knitting news, I've finally finished the first pattern repeat on my Baltic Sea Stole. I'm very happy with my gauge on US 3 needles, and the color really works with this pattern. It's LL Helen's Lace in Purple Club, by the way.
Also, I finished one Jaywalker, and I love it! It fits perfectly. My only issue is that I wish the ribbing around my calf were a bit tighter, but it's not a big deal. The yarn is LL Shepherd Sock in Amethyst Stripe, for all who wanted to know.
And a look from the side. This is the outside of my right leg, and you have no idea how much I had to contort myself to get this shot!
Someday soon, this little Jaywalker will have a friend. It's such a happy sock, it shouldn't be alone.
