Proof that this is indeed a knitting blog – half a Scarlet Woman Cardi-lero:
I have been picking up the red red Zara and working it into an Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet-inspired Adaptation, and am now two balls into the four I got from Penni’s destash.
In the car yesterday, on the way to the Oatlands Spring Festival, I mentioned my name for this project, and the MOMD enquired as to my reasoning. I explained it thusly:
- It’s really, really red
- I only have four balls of 8ply Zara
- That is only enough for a very cropped, very fitted cardi
- I will therefore be presenting some snugly scarlet feminine frontage to the world
- Red bosom = Scarlet Woman!!
The MOMD contemplated the mental images for a moment, and graciously indicated his approval.
