Although my history of dancing at weddings is tragic (I once blew out my ACL when they played "Twist and Shout" at my friends' reception. I did both, effectively ending my pro football career), I'm ready for another go at it. Even if I land in another crumpled heap on the dance floor, at least I will look sassy doing so:
Twirly, no? Looks a bit Flamenco, if I do say so myself.
Assisting in today's photo shoot is Ichabod, who normally oversees the activity in my sister's laundry room. I thought he deserved a special assignment, so he came outside to sit on the windsor chair.
He's not a bad model, once you get past his ego (thinks he's God's gift to laundry room statuary-there'll be no living with him now that he's famous).
Things I practiced/learned/used on the Mad Fandango:
2-ply handspun: Spun loose & plied tight makes fluffy yarn and happy knitting.
Ruffle: It's just possible I have been cured of knitting ruffles.
Short Rows: I wanted it wider at the center and narrower at the ends. Which is what happened.
I-Cord bind off: Always wondered how that worked, and now I know. I dig it.
All this and I didn't even have to shake my grove thing.
