I know Cristina and Kay are too modest to tell you this themselves, but I’m immodest enough to brag about their latest little act of creative genius.
The new Knitty is out, which is cause for delirious celebration anytime. But I’m especially delirious today–just careering around the house konking around (not bonking, I promise)–because Cristina and Kay have a pattern in it:
Mazel tov, ladies. Proud to know ye.
PS Apologies for the shocking brevity of this entry, but I am currently being held hostage by a paper I have to write for my book group. The topic: a two-volume biography of Evelyn Waugh and Brideshead Revisited. This is shaping up to be a total disaster: all I know is that Evelyn Waugh was not a woman. And my paper sounds like a blog entry. “OMG Evelyn Waugh was such a total creep. He was, like, AWFUL to his wife–go read this if you want to know more. Such. A. Dork. And here’s more.”
Dear Ann, this is Kay. Yes, you know me so well. I am the very soul of modesty and it pains me–pains me I tell you–to talk about myself. (Everybody who actually knows me may want to snort loudly at this time, or shout ‘Getta loada this!’ to your neighbor.)
But I feel I must put aside my innate reluctance to self-aggrandize, because I owe it to Cristina, co-designer extraordinaire, to post a few pictures of the RAWKINEST BABY JEANS IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE!!!!!
The model in these shots is Cristina’s adorable Elio. We’ll be doing some tips, and soon there will be a Flickr gallery for photos of Blu baby jeans in the wild. One thing Cristina and I have been most excited about is seeing how other knitters tweak the finishing and make these little jeans their own. So git crackin’, knitters of baby stuff. We can’t wait!
