Pathetic, I know. I humbly apologize. But I could not resist this. A few people publicly and a few people privately ever-so-gently brought it to my attention that the photo below is, well, interesting, to say the least. (and there is some overlap on this a little bit, for those who expanded their public comments with great generosity in private emails. And thank you, you lovelies. You know who you are.) I could reveal their identities, but that would be truly evil.
I have to admit, they're right. The photo now sends me into gales of laughter, alternating with blushes, alternating with horrified feelings of revulsion. How I could have missed this before I published it the first time is beyond me. It just goes to show you how tired I was when I posted it.
This isn't really a contest, per se, but any of you sweet people care to try your hands at a caption for this innocent little photo of the lining of Abigail's Snow Queen mitten? Don't be TOO gross, now!
------and in an attempt to redeem myself-----------
some progress has been made on the teal wristlet following the absolutely gorgeous Natalya pattern from Jody. This photo does not do it justice. This is so beautiful I may be addicted, and the yarn color -- I'm just in love; it's as simple as that. I may have to make these for myself in the same color, and I may have to make these full-time from now on. Quit my job, the whole nine yards.
I only wish this photo told the story well enough, but it doesn't. Jody, brava on this pattern!
