I do love a good, trashy, bodice ripper romance novel.
Specially if there's yarn involved.
Okay, so I saw that on Facebook the other day and thought it was funny.
Sadly, James is not in my world. This Minnetonka cowl is though. I have the feeling it is going to be a Huge disappointment. How can such a beautiful skein knit up into such a dreary and boring piece of fabric? I wanted so desperately to doctor the photo up to make the colors look better but the truth is the truth. And to really be truthful, I was outdoors and the sun was beginning to set and so the light was a little funny. In all honesty, the real life look is even more drab. The poor thing looks like Army brown camo that has been washed and heavily bleached about 18 gazillion times.
And the big question is, do I keep knitting and hand it over Christmas morning and say, "Too bad if you think it's ugly. You chose the yarn." Or do I show it to her now and ruin the surprise? Or do I frog the whole thing and say, "Ha ha, you're not getting a knitted gift after all."
I sure wish James was here to help me decide.
