today i'm going to show you the reason i started knitting.*
complete with signature
isn't it something? i love this hat! it looked like a piece of art to me even though i had no appreciation for knitting then. until this day, i still have not been able to copy it successfully. the calibre of knitting and detailing is impossible! if you could see it in person, you'd love it, too!
as i was not yet a knitter then, i remember being elated just because it happened to match my favorite skirt. all three colors. it hardly seems impressive unless you knew that janeen and i live 300 miles apart. at the time i received the hat, we hadn't seen each other for over a year!
the next day i got all dressed up and wore this very hat to work. i even took a picture of me in the matching outfit to send janeen. at first i took a few of myself in the bathroom mirror. then i decided they were too vain to show anyone. but that was years ago. i'm older and bolder now. hahahahaha.
well, i'm not that brazen yet. promise me you won't laugh and i'll show you this embarrassing picture. promise? ok. when you're ready, click on schmeebot in the header bar at the very top of the page.
*my humble beginnings.
