Earlier this week I finally put the zipper in my Ribby Cardi, but I didn't have the proper combo of weather, light and shooter to photograph it until today. Conveniently, we were headed to a Halloween party across the street, so Wee C jumped in, sporting her "wermaid" attire. She'll say "mermaid," too; I'm not sure where the initial designation originated. Yes, I made the sparkly fishtail with about a $3 investment in some stretchy/shiny fabric, and cardboard inserts plus elastic that was on hand. Then the temperature drove us to buy a fancy $17 nude leotard to wear under her bikini top. At least it's plenty big, and she does like to dance.
I've had startitis this week, beginning two scarves ~ one in Deco Ribbon and one in wool that I'm knitting the long way and making up as I go along ~ for charity and looking for the perfect yarn & pattern combo for the Warm Hands mitten-along. I think I've got the yarn ~ one of my MS&W finds, a 175-yard hank that I don't know why I purchased only the one, except that I'd reached that point in the day of total saturation. I'll probably return to reliable Ann Budd, but maybe I can cable the ribbing ~
