I decided to do the second mitten differently to try out some changes:
I’ll still do the “body” of the pattern as I did the first, but I am going to do the shaping at the top like a sock toe.
So I had an epiphany of sorts a couple of weeks ago. I was digging through my summer clothes and trying things on. I put on some shorts and looked in the mirror. Gah! They are not the most flattering shorts to begin with, and it struck me that I have reached the point of where I need to revisit the age-appropriateness of my wardrobe. If I were a 46 year old with a killer body, I wouldn’t concern myself. But, alas, I am not.
Last summer I discovered that skirts were really quite comfortable to wear in the summer instead of shorts. Revelation! I had before hand never worn skirts very often and certainly not in summer when I could wear shorts. But now as things have shifted around on me, I don’t feel that shorts are doing me any favours. Enter the capri. Previously I disdained the capri: shorts? pants? make up your mind!! But now, I present:
Capri, a Haiku
oh, how I mocked you
yet you cover the results
