So I thought I’d take pictures of the second knit top I made using the same block as before (which, by the way, is not the horrible tunic pattern I was struggling with- this block is very easy to work with since I custom-fit it last year… all I had to do this year was remove about 4” from the hip to account for the 4” I, uh, lost from my hips).
Now granted, I chose to take my pictures in the morning while my hair was still wet. But still, I’m realizing (for about the one-thousandth time in my life) that hair is an evil, terrible, horrifying thing and human beings should all (yea! verily! all!) be bald. Because my hair sucks.
Anyway, here’s the second version I made of the knit top.
This is a combination of knits I also got from Golden D’Or (I think). They’re nicer quality than the last shirt. I was a little worried it was going to be too Patchwork-Patti (I just made that up-- you like it, admit it) but I think the end result was ok. I got multiple compliments on it, although that’s always a little suspect around here since we do not live in what anyone could call a Fashion Haven.
And for further proof of just how much trouble it is to get a photo, here is what else happened in the one and a half minutes I spent trying to get a decent picture. There was this:
not one person in this photo has combed their hair
“Hey, I’m taking a pict---“
Lovely. I look like I have no neck. I seriously did not want to post such an unflattering picture, but it was just too funny. I wish I could have gotten a simultaneous shot of the Husband’s befuddled expression.
Regardless, this is way too many people in my personal space at 7:15 am.
