I finished Bobblicious quite some time ago, but I've been lazy about getting my husband to take my picture wearing it. I finally got around to it today. Here it is! It was his brilliant idea to take my picture in front of a mirror, so you can see front and back in the same shot. Pretty snazzy, eh?
The cats also like Bobblicious.
In other news, when I picked up the mail today, I had a packet from my secret pal from the Knittyboard Summer Fling secret pal exchange. She (I presume) sent me the absolutely cutest card EVER, and a lovely lace knitted bookmark. Hey, pal, if you read this, did you make that card yourself? It's one of the best things I've ever seen!
I wish I was a bit more social, sometimes. I trekked all the way downtown to go to AmyKnitty's "Leap" party, to celebrate her quitting her day job and working full time on Knitty. I had also heard that something my secret pal wants might be available there, so I had 2 reasons for going. I got down to the area about 40 minutes early, so I went to a restaurant and had a fabulous vegetarian meal at King's Cafe. Generally one should arrive late to a party so as not to be alone with the host, so I wasn't worried when I saw it was a little after 7 by the time I finished eating. I strolled over to Lettuce Knit and found that it was already PACKED with people. They were all chatting amongst themselves, and I didn't know anyone. I stood there for a bit debating what to do, then I decided to go shopping. I went inside and found something cool for my secret pal, which I successfully purchased. :) And then I went home. It was still a good evening, but it would have been better if I'd had the nerve to say hello to any of the people like I was kind of hoping would happen when I headed down there.
