Here's a little multiple choice for you today. Let's just pretend that you don't know what I'm knitting, and I show you this photo:
Now here's the multiple choice part. Would you say that I'm knitting:
1) A lampshade?
2) A mini skirt?
3) A top with a ribbed waist and a peek-a-boo bra area?
4) An extra long hat, like the one that Dumb Donald
from "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids
(I would probably choose 2. To me, it really looks like a skirt with a frilly hem.)
Incidentally, for those who really don't know what I'm knitting, it's a top with a ribbed hem and peek-a-boo bra area
. (But I'd understand if you picked any of the other options. Really, I would. Especially number 4, because Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids was one of my favorite cartoons when I was a kid.) And before anyone has a little shock seizure at the idea of my wearing this top with its peek-a-boo area, let's not forget that I live in a city in France where people don't think anything of a peek-a-boo bra top. So heck YEAH I'm gonna wear it. Vive la France!
P.S. Again, I'm using GGH Samoa for this top. I'm definitely liking it so far. It's soft and, unlike some other worsted cottons I've knit, it's easy on the knitting hands and it doesn't play games with my tension. I'm gonna have to use it again for future projects.
