My mystery project I. is doing fine, thanks, except for a try-on moment where I pulled on my excellent fitting garment, looked in the mirror, and saw BRAAAH! Lots of it-the lacework is really open, even though the multi-colored yarn hides a lot. I was soooo disappointed, because M.P. I. is slated to go to DMIL's. I picked a color she would like, I've tried to get the fit right for her, and I was really jazzed that she could wear it. In its present state, DH and my BILs will string me up and beat me like a pinata for making Mom such a trampy garment....and my DMIL will just shake her head and laugh. I must find a suitable beige tank for her to wear underneath.
Mystery project II, parts A and B are also fine. A is done, I just need to gear up and finish part B. Thanks for asking.
I still don't have knitting I can actually SHOW, which IS getting a little old, because I have to hunt up other things to talk about. I got Berroco KnitBits #150 today. The garments are FINE, but the copy bit my butt. Our crew neck pullover can be transformed into an ethnic costume with a touch of the "Eurasian Peasant." Hmmm. Ethnic, schmethnic...if they meant Turkish or Tibetan, they should have said so (but I think it looks Hungarian). I am Eurasian, and I think I qualify as a Peasant, which means I've been outed- I'm not properly dressed!! I've practiced the slack-jawed expression, and I think I've got that mastered, but must I wrap toilet paper around my head too?
