Yesterday I sat down and wrote down all of my measurements. That was an experience. I may have a nice little image in my head of how I see myself but it always gets shattered whenever I write down actual numbers. Oh well, since I know that I don't want to spend my days sweating in a gym and totally enjoyed my Black & White brownie last night, this is my body. My husband still whistles when I get something out of the oven with my hiney in the air and that is all that matters to me.
So lend a girl a hand - help me find a great shawl pattern. I am on a crochet kick lately so I would prefer that and I have 480 yards of Wexford Merino Silk, which is listed as a 10 ply/worsted weight though it doesn't feel like it at all. I don't care for the shawls that look like netting or mesh but I absolutely love the classic, elegant look. A shawl, or a shrug that goes up to a 47" bust, would be perfect. Yeah, I know I just shared a measurement with y'all but hey, it's just a number, right? I am totally skint so free downloadable works best for me right now or if someone has one that needs testing, I'm game.
That's my project week at a glance... oh, and I've been plugging away on this again -
|When things get slow during training at my new job this week, I have been sneaking in a few stitches.|
|Two projects at arms reach - the lazyboy is in my office too though so that's really three.|
