Introducing M's latest design project: Circley.
In other design news, Alison has cast on for her Vintage Cardigan test knit, and it's looking lovely in Elisabeth Lavold Silky Wool. Can't wait to see how it goes!
And here's another ring of 'em in kind of an umbilical cord format. These will be sewn on like fringe - if I can ever get the little f&(*&'ers to stop rolling up. I may have to back them with a stiff fabric.
It's always fun to collaborate with Maya on these things - the design has already deviated from the original drawing, so we'll see what happens with the top.
My goal is to make sure she doesn't look like a Bratz doll, but her goal is to make sure she kinda does (ugh) so there may need to be further mods.
Of course, when discussing fashion choices with an 8 yr old who has pre teen taste, you always need a drink. This one was pretty good and thought up on the fly.
Ginger Ale, a little pear & passionfruit nectar (sold in a can by Goya), and the half bottle of rose leftover from the day before. Needed a little shot of lemon, and it was a fabulous rose sangria kind of thing - no fruit - my friend and I didn't have the patience to wait for all the chopping!
The bonus is that they say things I'd picture Cary Grant tellling Frank Sinatra at the bar. (Although both Frank and Cary would have been pissed if the barkeep slipped anything cutesy on their glasses, I'm sure.) My favorite is "Here's Mud in Yer Eye". Followed closely by "Happy Landings" and "Dear Old Pals".
(Why don't people talk like they did in old movies? Or, why don't writers write like they used to for old movies?? It's so much better than the things characters say today. )
