Here’s a shot of the Knit Picks Shine Sport colors I’m substituting in the Arietta pattern from the last Knitty surprise. I took out the darkest (Sand) and added the lovely Butter yellow.
Only marginally knitting content: got this info from Grumperina’s blog (May 9 post)! Also pictured are the best-fitting jeans I have EVER owned in my entire life. Grumperina blogged about a site called True Jeans that has some algorithm to match exact and truthful(!) measurements against the jeans that best fit. Unfortunately many of them are designer pricey, but I decided I was willing to pay double ($150) for ONE pair of jeans that truly fits and flatters my short body. These Christopher Blue “Lloyd” jeans fit great and are also slightly stretchy. I’m in heaven.
