My opinions (and I do have a lot of them) on knitting and sometimes other topics.

In For A Penny, In For A Pound

There's nothing like a friend shaming you into blogging...

Even before I started rippling the brightest afghan known to humankind, this vest appealed to me. Not one to follow the directions entirely, I changed the colors to ones that were more to my liking. The ribbing on the bottom is pretty monotonous, just single crochet in the back loops, back and forth for 385,927 rows. (Well, maybe not that many but it seemed like it.) The rippling part is a lot more fun. The yarn is Lustersheen in the colors Tan, Natural and Spa Blue. I figure if I don't get too bored with it about the time cool weather rolls around in October or November, it should be finished and ready to wear over a light blouse or dress.

No segue to this next random paragraph...

Let's say you are in Las Vegas for a couple of days and you are rolling pretty hot dice at the craps table. Let's also say that at said table there is a very nice man wearing a rather conspicuous red Hawaiian shirt and you have a bit of a moment and he has sparkling eyes and a great smile (not to mention he's about 6'2"). WWMD (What Would Molly Do)? If you are smart, you whip out one of these and hand it to the nice man.

Purely hypothetical, of course, because we are not always smart.damn it
