Yes, I cut my hair. Click on the picture for a larger view. I was just a little shocked to discover that I looked... like a politician! Vote for me, willya?
Thanks for all the lovely compliments on the bat dress, by the way. I did get the skirt too. Because I can't resist. And I already have the yarn for the Flower Petal Shawl from Elann... except, knit in black, it's a bat wing shawl. So I'm thinking ahead.
Now, without further ado, I give you the contents of The Box! Yorkie, I had to get over the iridescence of the greenish/blueish/orangeish/glittery yarn in the box. There's something so outrageous about it, I'm afraid I rather like it! It makes me think Cthulhu. Don't know why. But it will want to become tentacular trim, I can already tell!
Of course, weird yarn wasn't the only thing in that box. It also contained the incredibly yummy mint cake and toffees. Yum. For the most part, what you're seeing is empty box. I wonder how it got that way!
Thanks, Yorkie. The Box really cracked me up. I was expecting to win at least one weird thing in a Pope picture caption contest!
Have you all seen pictures of the Tangled Yoke Cardigan in the Fall issue of Interweave Knits? I saw it and thought it would make the perfect work garment. Except in a different color. Something that would add a bit of pizzazz to corporate couture. And I came up with this.
Purplish/fuchsia-ish tweed. Very professional, n'est-ce pas?
