...but I still took time to take a picture of the Cité Internationale
with all its fab Christmas lights:
I also took the time to work on my boy's Letterman Jacket
I finished knitting all the pieces and am now blocking and seaming. Woot! But that's not all the blocking and seaming I did. Oh, no. I also blocked and seamed both pieces of my dad's Papa Vest
. And before I could even say "Rabbit on Big Time Finishing Kick" I picked up stitches for the armbands and knit them on like I was getting paid for it:
Yep, I see another finished project on the horizon. Looks like it's going to be a very Knitted Vest Christmas for my dad after all.
And I know that you're thinking, "But hey! Where's Butterfly
?" Well, I'll tell you. Butterfly is finished!
I worked the picot edges around the armholes and neck Sunday, knit the straps on Tuesday night and...get ready for this...was so impatient to give it a debut that I wore it to school the day after where I got Big Head for a while because I got some nice compliments on it. I know, I know. Pictures of finished Butterfly are very much in order! I will show pictures soon. All I need now is some free time [I am on two weeks' vacation after tomorrow] and a bit of decent lighting for picture taking. In the meantime I distract you with a totally gratuitous picture of a wacky jester-inspired Winged Insect Light costume
I and a second year student designed, sewed and constructed together using two types of mattress foam [!], vinyl fabric, wire, velcro and toy stuffing. We also designed and engineered the light system for the costume using 12.0 amp rechargeable batteries, LED lights, strand lights, plastic gardening tubing, metal wire and double faced tape. (Pity the wings - which are a riot - and lights don't show in the picture.) The costume was one of 40+ light costumes made by the fashion design students at my school as a collective school project, and it was worn for a light parade and show on December 8th for the Fête des Lumières. (I would have taken pictures of the parade, but I was too busy acting like a wacky jester-inspired Winged Insect all lit up for the holidays.)
