meet my little friend, Mme. Dumas…

In a Move that could only be topped by a springtime tornado or two, the Little Bad Muse has started Spring Cleaning! A legandary FIVE loads of laundry were done over a two hour span of excrutiatingly boring Moday Night Sitcom TV and that only whet her whistle.

ON to the closets! DIG through the Sweater Armoire! FIND the scoundrels that need to be cleaned before their Summer Hibernation!

SCREECH! This is a cool thing – the yummiest deep indigo color – but the sight of it makes the Little Bad Muse hem and haw and before you know it, she’s borrowing a phrase and SHOUTING in my ear: “Dumbass”….

That’s right – it’s too big and looks wonky! This poor creation is the end result (and becoming my personal MO) of NOT reading the pattern. Just knit the thing, make a few critical changes and carry-on as a card carrying member of the Dumas Family, who in legendary fashion, set the standard for blissful ignorance!

End Result? Floppinzeeze in ze shoulder, droopin’ in the sleeves, and an accidental waistline that would do Mme. Josephine proud…

OFF with it’s Thread! Vraiment…
