I have a confession to make . . .

The truth is that my natural inclination is to dress each day like a parrot on acid. Every fiber of my being aches to be garbed in a rainbow of festive colors. It's taken years, but I've come to understand that this is not a good look for me, and that I am a tad young to pull this off as a side effect of being eccentric.

Knitting has generally helped with this problem - it allows me to add a brightly colored scarf or tank to an otherwise somber outfit, and thus, throw a bone (or sunflower seed) to my inner parrot. This week, though, I started a "ski" sweater to bring with me to Yellowstone in February, and the yarn I bought on eBay is even brighter than I realized. (la will recognize this as the top-down raglan pattern, modified for a V neck).

Will this sweater scare the wolves away? Will it lead to my fellow expedition members leaving me on an ice floe to quietly fade away? Only time will tell . . .

Well, on the upside, you are in no danger of being accidentally shot by anyone who happens to be out hunting. They'll see you from a mile away.

Happy New Year:)

Can't stand green on it's own... but add some purple and I think it's great.

These colors are nice.

Happy New Year Diane. How is Noodles neck doing? I see she is still wearing the bandage in the "fires" and "couch" photos.

Happy New Year, all! I made a bit of progress on the sweater yesterday and tried it on - - it's not actually as bad on as I had feared . .

ffleur - Noodles is all better - that's not a bandage - just her natural coloring!
