Skrilla Knits

Knitting has long been considered antiquated, something for grandmas and whipped little housewives. That just isn't true. Knitting is one of those minute to learn, lifetime to master deals, and I'm in it for the long haul.


New Lexie!

SO, as you know, I've been modeling a fair bit this year. It all started with Lexie Barnes, who hired me after I helped her pick out some prop knitting paraphernalia at Webs and basically had an epileptic fit over her be-skulled Hermosa bags. I dressed as TWO of her prints for Halloween
and the rest was waterproof, pocketful history. Like the Hair Club for Men dude, I'm not just the model, I'm also a hardcore fan. I rarely drive and every time I get caught in some shite weather I look at my laminated bag and say "BLESS YOU, LEXIE BARNES."

Well, Lexie's newest batch of beauties has arrived. I can't tell you how fun it is to hang out with my psuedo-baby (her actual baby) all day in Eastworks especially because her aesthetic goals are so rad. Since I have been obsessively watching Audrey Hepburn films (for academic reasons, I swear ;) I found myself feeling inspired by "Funny Face", dancer feet and black flats, etc. In one picture, I'm reading a Rome travel guide. It's like a mini-homage!

Here are some pictures from last time:

Time to get ready for the thanks giving! Have a happy day.

hi...i "met" you in webs today (girl from pa with the nike sneaks and herringbone vest...) i've actually been reading your blog on an off since i found it via craftster and was homesick in colorado last year, but for some reason was nervous to say something about it....(i didn't know if it was kosher to talk blogs at the store and didn't want to weird you out with a "smallest world ever" moment...)

hope you can find the sneaks!
(and the photos are gorgeous)!

hiya again!

HAD to post about the birthday comment on my blog:

Weirdest/ grossest story ever: when I was about 15 or so -- worst age ever -- my mom gifted me a pair of tiny diamond earrings that my dad had given her for Christmas...9 months before I was born. I could never wear them as a result. (I think now I would have appreciated the moment a bit more, but 15 was such a rough age). I know A LOT of virgo kiddos born around our birthday....but not too many with evidence of the conception! I shudder again just thinking about it.....

but I love being a virgo...even with all the craziness that it entails.
