Ten million to one, I bet you would never know that I have an ailing 72-year old husband's uncle living in my house right now. He's alright, he is, but oh man. All the cooking. All the cleaning. All the making of one-sided conversation with someone who doesn't hear real well.
To boot, last night, he told me that my house was immaculate. I was excited that he said that until I noticed he had his pants on backwards.
And tonight, we took some pics of a new Yogini Bolero I just finished. My husband's uncle took one look at them and declared that the girl in the photos wasn't me.
At least he's honest. I don't recognize myself, either.
This is what happens when your husband is a professional photographer. He makes you look good. And in this case, he made me look a heck of a lot better than I do in real life.
BTW: I finally decided what to do with that Loop-d-Loop Quartz. I rarely knit something more than once. But as I swatched and swatched and tried to decide what is best for this yarn, I realized that it is perfect to use it for something that I wear often. Not a scarf, a shawl, or a garment that gets used only once in awhile, because this yarn drapes perfectly. And since I actually do wear my Yogini Bolero often, I decided that this yarn should be just that. The metallic that they talk about in the description isn't all that sparkly. It just adds a bit of shine. But, the fabric it makes is sooo nice, I can hardly tell you how nice except to say that if you are in the mood for the best summer yarn, this is it. (Especially if you don't normally like linen or hemp because this is way softer.)
BBTW: When I put these sunglasses on after a couple of years in hiatus, I wondered why everything was so clear. Turns out, they were prescription lenses and I had forgotten about it.
