Because The People Demanded It

Me in green Mia shrugYou ask and I answer in as comfortable a way as possible for me: partial body shot only, so as to show the combination of the Mia shrug with the silk chiffon dress.

You have to take my word for it when I tell you that my makeup was flawless and my Heidi-style braids were smooth and neat. The jewelry, made for me by Stylish Girl, was a perfect match with its semi-precious stones of green and brown.

This shot was taken a couple of days ago, but I held off on showing it until I could complete the modifications to add the seamless, circular knitting option to the Mia pattern.

What's on the needles at the moment? More swatches for the Walker Treasury Project. I have a couple of months to complete them, which dovetails perfectly with my on again / off again knitting capabilities. Besides that, I get a chance to knit a few rows, learn a new stitch and move on.

Knitting repertoire enhancement, stash diving and instant gratification - all in one!

Gorgeous! Way to pull a look together! I love the beads, reminds me of one of my favorite projects out of Knitting with Beads. Glad you could finish this up despite the pain.

It's a gorgeous, dressy shrug! Wear it proudly as you go through this whole SLAP fiasco.

KB, I've been MIA for some time, but I've got to weigh in on how GORGEOUS the Mia is!!! Did you have any problems with the Dream in Color bleeding onto the needles? That happened to a friend of mine who was knitting with it. In other news, congrats on finally figuring out what's wrong with your SLAP. . . I hope those surgeons get their acts together because frankly, you need to be knitting!!
