i was just about to go take a picture of the fabulous VK ribbed minidress i've been stockinetting my wrists into a fit of tendonitis over. but then i remembered. i don't have a camera. or rather, i don't have a camera that works. turns out, a mere two-foot vertical drop onto a hardwood floor is all it takes to turn a $250 digital wonder into a desk ornament. (note to self: the metal thingy in the side of the camera is for the wrist-strap.)
so, in lieu of silver halide, i will attempt to paint a picture using only the fading keys of my trusty macbook.
it's grey. (my current obsession with grey is balanced by my other current obsession with yellow.) it's made of rowan felted tweed which is surprisingly soft thanks to merino wool and a healthy dose of alpaca. it's to the knee. at least, that's what i'm hoping for. even after all these years of knitting, i still don't know a reliable way to predict the length of anything from socks to sleeves to minidresses.
i am hoping for the kind of fall sweaterdress i can pull on over a pair of colored tights. maybe with some peeptoe oxfords. or ankle booties. oh, and with a skinny patent leather belt. in yellow.
maybe i better see about getting a new camera.
