The Morning After
Either one is becoming less vain with age or one has already crossed the eccentric old lady line - not caring about being photographed before coiffing hair, painting out liver spots and enhancing eye lashes - a morning ritual usually undertaken before even venturing from the sleeping and ablutions end of the house for a first coffee.
But I digress. This was not meant to be a progress report about the joys or otherwise of aging but rather....
... the benefits of six years of designing haute couture for the tea pot.
2. Any knitter that ignores this fact will knit ill fitting and unwearable things til kingdom come - regardless of how fab the model in the photo looks - unless of course you are of model proportions yourself.
3. Dressmaking skills can and have been learnt from spending six years designing tea cosies that do not ride up like a bad mini skirt or fall about like an old man's jumper.
4. It does not take much to make a knitter cocky enough about re-patterning successes as to photograph herself in a half finished garment without her face on.
The other thing one is likely to witness if one appears earlier than usual is The Bloke feeding the butcher birds in the morning mist.
