Because the knitting I’ve got to share isn’t really that exciting (yet–hopefully), I’ll start with the boobs. Yup, more on the knitting blog about bazoombas. So I’ve got to get a strapless bra to go with a nice chiffon dress that I’d be wearing later that day, and I’m faced with a dilemma. The bra is the same price a whole new dress (albeit on sale)?!? What would you do? Also, please bear in mind that it will close to 100 and an outdoor gathering. Oh you knew, I got that devil of a blue dress and wore NO bra. Another margarita please.
So, enough of the boobage talk. It’s a knitting blog for jiminy’s sake. I began the re-knit of the Phildar Plaisance that I’d ripped out of the sweater dubbed by a faithful reader as the "Alien Belly" cardie. I began the back of the raglan sleeve pullover I’d selected from the Phildar Tendances magazine. A quick aside as I get heaps of questions about where I procure these Phildar magazines, I get them at Knit N Tyme in Canada. I am not affiliated with this business, but have been more than happy with their great service. As an even farther aside at this juncture, Knit N Tyme has the NEW Fall Phildar magazine available translated at the end of July. Yes, mine’s already on order… Anywhooo, the exciting knitting you see to your right is the 2 x 2 ribbing that is to be the back. Yeah, contain your excitement, an entire back piece of ribbing. Yawn. Luckily, I’ve got my bra adventures to fall back upon for their undoubted entertainment value.
