Self-Portrait Thursday December 3, 2009

December is quickly upon us and so is a load of yarn!

We decided we just had to have one of those Super-Bulky Cowls we’ve been spying on the Fashionistas amongst us. My muse/friend Edie wants to make some of these for her friends too SO a Cowl Pattern is born…

A little stash-diving came up with this hank of yarn, purchased from my very first in-the-wild fiber fest quite a few years ago already. It seems to be something that could be sampled.

It’s been mellowing in the stash until this morning and what really took me by surprise is that it is almost ready-to-wear as is: seriously, I had just gotten done figuring out what dimensions I wanted to make this and just for the heck of it, I pulled out the tape measure and what do you know?


It was just about the exact size I was thinking of! (A little longish…)

But really, it was just too funny and to continue the silliness, it begged for the bog-standard Mirror in the Bathroom pose I’ve known and loved so well over the years at Chez Chic. There were only a couple of these in 2009 and it would be unlucky indeed not to feed the muse again…

So I’ll be busy at it this weekend — look for some fine accessorizing to be happening here in a big way very soon…

    I have a cowl I made, but I am not sure if I am ready for the uber fashionista approach.
