Wouldn't this be a hoot!
I knit for a lot of people... my customers, my kids (not so much), and for family/Christmas presents. I have not knit myself anything for a really long time. In fact, I don't ever recall finishing a project for myself. I might have made myself one slipper sock. And a lot of good one does, right?
So when I saw the addition to the most recent edition of Knitty.com, I fell in love ... with this.
I want to knit this. What is the practicality of it? The opportunities are endless.
Wearing it to the grocery store.
Wearing it when your daughters are picked up for their first dates.
Wearing it to school to pick up the kids.
Wearing it to overnight family functions, and spending most of the day in it until it is time to "fix your hair." I SO could have embarassed the ever living crap out of my MIL at Thanksgiving had I donned this beauty.
Wearing it to drop the kids off at school.
Seriously, I am VERY close to getting the supplies for it. And you know what? I think I AM going to make this.
But I think I will make it for my aunt first.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
Murphy's Law doesn't even cover it
