I'm going ice skating on Saturday. I found this out on Monday. I don't know if we have talked about this before, but I like to dress to occasions. This summer I went to a baseball game, so I wore a red/pink/blue plaid-ish gingham shirt dress. Why? Because it felt like America to me. Like I was dressing to illustrate baseball. I do this a lot. I'm not getting dressed for church, I'm getting dressed for what my idea of what my Sunday should be/ feel like... that's probably why my clothing is so expressive... or not, when I am not feeling expressive. I'm essentially always wearing a costume. As I write this it seems a little stranger than it usually does... or I am just always dressing for success.
But since I was going ice skating, I wanted it to look like I was going ice skating. I sent a tweet to my peeps that I was looking for a pink cowl. To me, this would make me look wintery and girly. Both of which is on my agenda for my idea of ice skating. Also, I am not much of a knitter. I don't have the hand strength to do it (tear.)
The first is from Amanda. Amanda is this the one that you were working on in my house when you were here? Oh and don't worry, it is just the same exact color as my skin, no different.
If I am correct, this is Twinkle yarn??? And I don't know the pattern. All I know is that I love it.
I am going to write a separate post about my love for Knit Collage in just a minute, but here is the beautiful cowl, that I think is actually called the Lizzy Cowl... because of me?
It's so beautiful, and sparkly, and will go with my bright yellow coat so well. It's from the Gypsy Garden Collection, in Raspberry Sunset.
And if that wasn't enough, they made me a Sister Skate Cap... because I'm ice skating. And it's perfect. And they are fantastic.
I will try and get some proper pictures soon.
I have been loving everything lately, and it has been loving me back. It really works.
Thank you thank you dear friends. I try every day to be just as good to deserve all the good things that happen/ are happening in my life.
