Hey! I finally finished the bolero thing!


It actually turned out better than I had imagined. Those miles and miles of edging are in the past now. The pattern is from the summer 2005 Vogue Knitting, and I substituted KnitPicks Shine for the silk stuff they suggest.
Okay, I’m headed down to LA (that would be Los Angeles, not Louisiana) now. If you see an Asian person in desperate need of a haircut and wearing age-inappropriate clothing, why, that is probably me, so please say hello.

    Cute bolero.
    Please if you think that being “an Asian person in desperate need of a haircut and wearing age-inappropriate clothing” in LA will make you stand out in any way, you’ve got another thing comin’.
    Have a good trip. 🙂

    There is no ‘age-inappropriate’. If you can pull it off– and it seems you can, darlin’– you are cheering up the rest of us.
    But please–it would kill you to get a haircut? (Not that we ever see the hair.) xox Kay

    Nice job on the bolero!
    I’m sure fit right in in LA!…age inappropriate clothing and 4 months between haircuts are the norm…asians, whites, blacks, hispanics…
