You know how it goes. You take a little unscheduled vacation from the blog, and the randomness starts to pile up in your inbox. Here we have a hat seen yesterday at Ascot:
It’s no Princess Beatrice At The Wedding, of course. More (many more) Ascot hats over at Tom and Lorenzo.
And of course there’s always knitting. Ever since Tracey and Mel posed in a sweater-for-two on the cover of Knit Two Together, it was only a matter of time before sweater censuses would rise.
The design challenge here was that the conjoined arms had to be functional, because this sweater is for a band. (Of course it is.) Apparently, just joining the bodies is not challenging enough. The arms have to be stuck together as well. OK. I get that.
Kids, this is our Holiday Card 2011! Matching (detached) dog sweater for Olive! (I’ve been trying to outdo this guy at embarrassing my children. This just might be it!)
Curious about this sweater? Watch this YouTube.
Curious about this band (Pearl and the Beard)? Here’s a free download.
In other news, I’m knitting lots of stuff, and affixing my children’s names to lots of other stuff. I love the smell of Magic Marker.
That is all.
