Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

While the battery charges…

Posted by Amber on November 13, 2007

After a fun trip back from NYC (eventful trip up there … I should take up running, sprinting across Dulles at 5:30 is a great way to confirm your out of shape-ness; less eventful trip back) I went to G Street today to buy buttons.  I browsed and browsed, then snagged a sales woman (loose buttons are kept in boxes behind the counter).  I pulled out my sweater so that I could make sure the colors matched (so many shell buttons are more green than blue).  She says to me:

“Wow, that’s beautiful.  And it doesn’t look like it would be hard to modify to be an adult size!”

I paused, trying to decide if I wanted to be outright mean or just a little mean.  Then I said:

“Thanks.  It’s for me.  I guess this sweatshirt that I’m wearing adds a lot of bulk.”  [Typical college style hoodie]

What, cute fitted handknits?  Never!
