(i'll see you all there NEXT sunday too!)
I am NOT GOING TO BITCH ABOUT THE WEATHER. I'm not. Everyone else is doing that for me. And I live in Boston, so the questions of the day are "hot enough for ya?" and "ohh..the muggies have returned?" *sigh* get new jokes people. Overall, this is a slow time for my business... so it's a nice calm monday.
So, here is the BIG question of the day:
DOES THIS DRESS NEED A SHRUG?
The dress (a Filene's less than $50 find, by the way) is for the wedding of PC's best buddy that I have to attend next weekend (right after the 4th). Hmm...it comes with this:
I think the sweater screams: SOFIA PETRILLO. don't you?
I am not sure if 1) I want to try to rush through a shrug for this or 2) that it actually needs one. I know, summer in Boston- I should be ok. But you know how the reception halls never want the bride to be "too warm"? Also, I don't particularly care for my upper arms (they jiggle) and that might mask it. Any opinions? Help me out here people! PC- stop reading here- I am also a little worried b/c of the whole "skinny women" that will be attending the wedding. I know, I should "love who I am" but c'mon... we all get a little self-conscious. I am hoping to just fade into the background at this one. I don't know PC's friends very well and while the couple getting married is very nice, I don't know them real well either. I will let you all know how it goes. But, let me know about the shrug thing! I have the OSW (one skein wonder) from Glampyre- the pattern that is. I would want to make this in pink. Probably Calmer or something similar.
Chickami update: damn near done! I will have a picture tomorrow... and a FO!
Dinner menu tonight: Halibut steaks on the grill with zucchini, squash, and corn on the cob.
Happy knitting Monday!
