My New Sahara

AKA, I'm-not-photogenic.

The following is a public service announcement in pictorial form. Don't ever let your spouse photograph you while making fun of your bad modeling form -- especially if you have a sense of humor about such things.

First he says, "Smile and open your eyes." This is me saying, "huh?"

"No, OPEN your eyes..."

sahara 002

"You look like you've got a lazy eye now."

sahara 003

"Okay, now you have no eyes..."

sahara 004

"And now you just look insane..."

And because Mary requested the details... the pattern is Sahara by Stitch Diva (short-sleeved version), worked up in Tilli Tomas Pure & Simple in the medium size. It only took 2.5 skeins. I didn't use Rock Star or Disco Lights for the trim because, uhm, I have little children. :) I did the diamond rib pattern on the neckline and I have to say that P3togtbl is a complete pain in the rear.

Mark Your Calendars...

I've been invited to do a spinning demo at the Ravelry Meet-Up on March 16 at The Knitting Nest. I'll also be bringing some hand-spun yarns for sale, which means that for the next week and a half, I'm going to be spinning like a mad woman (which shouldn't be a far reach for me).

Want to see some of the stuff on my etsy? Click the link to the left!

I'm also working on a pair of Biker Chic socks of my very own, although I'm cheating on Angelina with some Claudia Hand Paint Fingering Weight sock yarn in Just Plum. Sorry, Zen!
