Oh my, I want that top pattern. I am going to compulsively check the garter belt until it shows up.


Hey, I had another idea for...you know...that THING. When HWWV & Girlfriend take the outlaws on an excursion, you could get a whole bunch of fishing line and suspend each motif from the ceiling above the bed of MIL's guest room. Hang each one at a slightly different height. I can guarantee you, she'll never "forget" it again....


I was thinking I could stuff all the motifs in their luggage before they leave (they make us store all their stuff in the closet for months on end). Anyway, when they finally go home and open up the luggage, voila!


I'm not going to comment on That Which Shall Not Be Mentioned.


The tank is so beautiful. I keep finding things that you've designed that I must knit. Why is it that you feel you must keep creating more fabulous garments when I have not had time to knit even one of them yet?!

Martha (another one)

I think that you should finish the (you know), auction it off on your blog, and use the money to fly to Vegas for a girls weekend. While they're here. Call it an essential business trip.

(Beware of comments beginning with "I think..."!)


I want that top. Bad. I want to knit that top, even more badly. Need pattern!!


Knitting Momma

I think I love that top, and more importantly, I think my husband will love it, too.

As for the shawl...maybe you can turn bad karma into good karma? Finish it and then donate it to a women's shelter or a hospital ward. Somewhere, someone needs something beautiful in her life...even if it's not your mom.


that tank is just what i need. Lets get that up on the garter belt asap. Could you at least hint at how much yarn is needed so we could prep?


Yes, I used 5 balls of the silk/cotton blend mentioned in the post. Each ball had 120 yds and I used a size 7 needle. The size I made was a 34 and the finished bust is about 35.

I haven't yet figured out yardage for all sizes...


I'm sure you've heard it a thousand times, but that top is beautiful. I just simply love everything you do. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Knitting!


I'm so glad you're doing sizes beyond a "L"...we bigger girls deserve beautiful handknitted garments too!!

Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
