SnB, new dress... *almost* FO....

What more could you ask for in a weekend? Hmm... well, PC asked for a new MP3 player: asked and answered. I asked for new dress: in my hot little hands. SnB...well, that was better than I ever imagined! PC gave me a little push in the right direction ( I think he wants me to stop talking about knitting and "be interesting again") and I really do love it! I knew it would be good for me to find a group to knit, chat and have fun with. Little did I know, how great these ladies would be. I had a great time!

(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!

  2. Hey, I just took the plunge and hung out with a knitting group for the first time myself, too....It's a good time, eh?

    Nice dress for a wedding! (Good for you for braving the depths of Filene's, too....I go about once a year and last 10 minutes down there.) As for shrugs, have you checked out the summer '05 issue of Interweave Knits? It includes six fun summer shrugs *and* a very cool Debbie Bliss bolero.

    I vote for the shrug. I can't put my finger on why, but it just looks like the shrug would compliment it so well.
