Prize Peek

I don't have much time today, I have to be somewhere very early this morning. I'm an early riser but a slow starter. I need time to ease into the world in the morning. So being made up and wearing a suit, arriving someplace at 7:00 a.m. is tough. Really tough. So here is a little peek at something I bought today as part of the prize for Look Back and Cringe.

I picked it up at Yarnzilla on my lunch hour today. It's Mt. Colors Bearfoot and the fabulous Linda assures me it's a new colorway that isn't easily found. I need the help of someone like Linda when it comes to sock yarn because, in case I haven't mentioned this before, I don't do socks. Linda is the best and someday she is even going to let me buy the cashmere I'm craving.

More on the Look Back and Cringe front:
Chris has gone so far as to link to pictures of herself. If back in the 80's you went to buy purple eyeshadow and the store was out, it was because Chris had bought it all. Proof positive her obsession with purple is hardly a new phenomenon.

Deepa is, sadly, blogless (but I heard through the grapevine, she's thinking about starting a blog) but she has posted a comment about her Indian "fusion fashion". Deepa, I still can't think about cowl necks even though I see patterns for knitted cowl necks all over the place.

Tam may be the bravest woman ever. She has not only posted pictures of her 80's fashions and a dizzying array of giant glasses, but she has posted a picture of herself just after giving birth. She looks like the happiest woman on earth in this picture, but let's face it we are not exactly at our glamorous best after pushing a person out of our bodies. Tam, I am not worthy.

Okay, I'm going to go be an early bird. Talk to you tomorrow.

Damn the 80's making a come back. No leggings for me, I refuse. However, I can recall a moment when I wore tye-dyed leggings and sported a perm. Those were rough years.

Okay, I found a couple of pictures and posted them on my blog. Fortunately, it looks like no "big sweater with leggings" pictures exist!

Had an early morning, suit-wearing, drink your coffee in the car kinda morning myself today. But it was an '06 suit and not my 1987 polyester interview suit and that is enough to make it bearable. Thank God its Friday!

Oh, pretty yarn!

Heh, it's going to be fun checking out these links...

Actually, I don't think it purple eyeshadow. It was FAR more complicated, involving intricate blending of grey, pink, and white.

ME WANT THAT YARN. I hope my vintage eyebrows will push you over the edge. haha

Chris, you are exactly right. It was kind of a blue grey eye shadow and a sort of pinky/rosey color shadow blended carefully and with a swash of white under the brow. I remember I had those two colors right in the same little compact. Oh yeah and navy eyeliner. The sparkly purple was the 70s (I did that one too along with the feathered hair. PLEASE let us not go there again.)
