c'est fini

bella paquita by marnie maclean

after feeling like i had entered a labyrinth of 2x2, i gave up last night and bound off with 12 rows to go. and it turns out that it was a good choice, because it's a few inches longer than i wanted it (hitting, um... the top of my inseam, i was going to hitting my hipbones, or anterior sacro-iliac spines). and it makes me look as boxy as i feel. woo! it's actually not that bad, except in pictures. the top is good, the bottom is liveable, i'm wearing it to lunch today.


  • made of lion brand wool-ease in grey heather(i know... but i'm on a student budget)
  • #7 susan bates silverados, 32"
  • started: 23 november 2005
  • finished: 5 december 2005
  • new techniques: 2-needle bind-off, provisional cast-on, super pretty lace pattern.

if i haven't communicated it effectively yet, I LOVE KNITTING LACE. and cables, but there aren't cables in this project.

maybe if you wear a froofy skirt with tights and boots (so you'll be warm) then the boxy feel will be less boxy. Who knows. But boxy is okay if it's pretty boxy. Which it is.

No. 1 reason to use Lion Brand: They have Meredith Phillips, of "The Bachelor" fame, as a model on their wrappers. I am in love with her. That Bob Guiney is a damned fool, I tell you. A damned fool!

no. 1 reason not to use lion brand: the yarn blows. meredith phillips or not. :)

and my all-time best word verification ever: sxxehwtf
(or properly punctuated:
