The knitter was all snuggled into the corner of the couch with dear hubby on one side and kitties on the other. A movie was playing through the DVD player...a sweetly romantic tearjerker of a movie that said knitter had been wanting to see for a long time. She knit and counted, knit some more, counted some more rows, sniffled a bit when it looked as if the two soulmates were going to be torn apart, never to find each other through the mailbox and lake house that allowed them to communicate.
The movie ended in just the right manner. Too bad the waistband of the tweedy skirt did not. Imagine the poor knitter's surprise when she completed the three needle bind off and was ready to start the front section of the skirt, but...oh no...oh dear...her worst fears were realized. The dreaded twisted join! What should have been a perfect circle to cinch her waist, was actually a mobius.
This time, no twist, but it looks a lot like a snake with a compound fracture of itself in this high quality photo. (Camera is still kaput (as evidenced by the phone photos) and while it has had issues since the end of December, I have not had time to take it in until now. The catch at this point being that the camera shop of my choice just happens to be exceptionally close to a stadium/downtown in a place that is currently overrun with sports fanatics until after some big thing on Sunday. I'll just wait another week, thank you very much!)
What is it supposed to eventually be? The Simple Straight Skirt by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas
What does the yarn reeeeeaalllly look like? Plymouth's Encore Tweed in Colorway T217
I'm sort of a lot afraid of snakes...and twisted skirt waistbands.
