Hand-Knit Sweater

As many of you know, I have become a wee bit obsessed with knitting. I have joined two knitting groups, meet with them twice a week, spend other stolen moments in my new favorite store, the Knitting Knook, and go to sleep reading knitting patterns. (Yes, really!) I have made quick friends with Aphrodite, who is an avid knitter and spinner and who often gives me sage advice (like, “aw, rinse it in conditioner and it won’t itch so much.”) Some day, when I am feeling adventurous and more able, I will knit a sweater.

Until then, I will have to enjoy the handiwork of artists like Dick Wiesel. Dick has fashioned a set of sweaters that are absolutely glorious in his use of colors. I am guessing he purchased some fine self-striping wool, a blend that makes the sweater less itchy but just as warm and wearable, and whipped out these sweaters while watching a few football games. (And if you don’t think men can knit, they sure can!) I love this sweater—it will be one of those favorites I wear over and over—a comfort sweater. My pants are actually capris from Maya Levane with a great subtle plaid.

My glorious hair is from the equally glorious Queue Marlowe. The hair base you see on my head is actually from a set of hair base tattoos that Queue is offering for free to be worn with her hair. They are incredibly well done and match her prim hair perfectly. This way you don’t have to settle for the dark hair base on the skin you bought—your hair will match. This bouncy and charming ponytail is one of Queue’s new offerings as well. My plain and pretty makeup is an offering from Rhapzody Wilde, who offers an alternative set of skins for girls who don’t want to be so much glam as just plain pretty.
