hello yello

i feel sunny despite the four or so inches of snow that have fallen over the past couple of days.

my brand-spankin new wheels might be one reason. (hey, it was this or a $1600 repair bill on my old mini. go figyah.)

my brand-twinklin new best friend cardi might be another.

of course, they all jaundice in comparison to the newly re-va-va-vamped bonnie. previously banished to the darkest corner of my unworn knits pile, she will rise like a phoenix bess out of the ashes. inspired by this dreamy dress from the new VK, and bolstered by this great tute, i took scissors to stitches and snipped away. stay tuned for a longer, slinkier bonnie. do you think clyde would approve?

i know u are a pro. but "snipping" makes me nervous. Bonnie is so gorgeous I cannot wait to see it revamped.

i'm still scared of the bulky Twinkle patterns (errr, rather, what my size 8 frame might look like in them) - but i can't wait to see how your best friend cardi comes out! i love the yellow color!

also, i'm super jealous of your car!!!
