Full DisclosureJanuary 17, 2009
Oh, y'all are so sweet. Thank you for the compliments. I love my glasses, too. And the bangs aren't bad.
But that sweater? I guess I thought you all would just believe me when I said it hung funny. Sure, from the front it's kind of okay. I like it from the front. And as Lala said, "When you're sitting, it looks fine, too."
But this is what it looks like from the back:
Oh, god. You see? How it drapes like a ball? It's decidedly weird and Not Good, and Feral Janine agrees with me, and I defer to her wisdom in all things knitted (and most other things, come to think of it).
I only post this because some people (I'm looking at you, Sil) said they were going to cast on for it. Think twice. Or add some shaping. A LOT of shaping.
Now, me? I've had the most lovely lie-in-bed morning, and I did not work. I will write some later -- working on some edits for the first half of second book before I plunge into writing the rest of it -- but I am not writing this morning. We're getting ready to eat eggs and sausage, and then we will be headed out to try rock-climbing at a local gym!
Rock-climbing is one of those things I've always thought would be fantastically fun. I am a realist, though, and know that I might get up on the rock and look down and think firmly, "Hell, no, never again." But I want to give it a shot.
I hope you try something new and fun this weekend! Let me know in comments what you're up to. xo
