please don't judge me for my dirty mirror...

Holy crap, that's bad. I had to bring it up from the basement though - it's the only mirror in the house besides the medicine cabinet :p I thought the spots wouldn't be as noticeable in photos but damn was I wrong! If it were just a couple, I'd photoshop those bad boys out...it's late here though and I don't have that kind of time (or talent!) So, be good friends and pretend you can't see them.

My poor attempt at capturing Bonita. A self-portraitist, I am not (and no Ashley, I *don't* know how to use my timer!) Like I said, a little shorter than I would have liked but over a tank, not too bad. It's growing on me and I think I'm at the point where I would actually wear it out of the house. It's nice and light - perfect for summer. I think the i-cord bind off for the neck and collar is awesome - so neat and smooth! Finished it last Sunday and started Rusted Root on Monday. And I'm *loving* Rusted Root. Here is my progress as of yesterday. Today, I managed to get a couple of inches into the body (past the armhole) I'm flying on this one and the pattern is so much easier than Bonita. This one will get done in a flash!

And we had a nasty storm blow through yesterday...sun and super hard rain. It was a little windy too - these are sitting on the windowsill in our kitchen and this is how they looked after the storm passed:
Oh, and the give-away...that'll start on Monday and run through Friday! I'll give you the details tomorrow but in the meantime, dig into your stash stuff!

    oh man, e.
    you are incredibly talented!
    this is sooo gorgeous.
    love the color and you look
    like one hot mama wearing that...what are you talking about 'almost comfortable enough to wear it in public'. you should be flaunting that baby off.
    Rusted Root looks amazing.

    look at you hot stuff! love how it turned out - actually like that it's a little shorter so that it's more hip and trendy and less, i don't know - stuffy? love it!

    and now we're even. beret = bonita.

  8. Okay, I am freaking inlove with this sweater and the awesome color! Well done!

  9. Love the sweater, so totally cute! The spots on the mirror almost look like a digi brush you would use to age a photo ;) Very cool indeed!
