me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Green is made for Irish Lasses!

Remember a while back when I was going on about how clever I was to have finished that "Becky" top? Yep, I was all pumped up about my knitting and finishing prowess.

But, the top looked like crapola on me ... shoulders falling off my wimpy shoulders ... neckline too low ... the color? Oh it was not too pretty on me, Mavis.

So, I finally broke down and decided it should go to a better place. Like a revelation, I thought of pal, Gretchen! Duh, she lives less than 100 yards from me and I see her all the time, but it took a while to put two and two together.

So, I offered what is now taking on the personality (from my description) of a Very Vile Garment. Gretch is a very positive gal. Not only did she take it, but looky here:
Don't she look too cute?? Huh, huh?? She paired it with a black cami and capris along with sleek black toe-loop sandals -- PERFECT! I'll bet those little third grade boys she hangs with every day got their crushes all worked up on this.

    I meant to comment on this a while ago but forgot.

    By her smile I'd say she's in love with Becky! The color looks good on her, too.

    What's going on with you? We haven't heard from you in a long time!

    It looks great on her, but too bad it didn't fit you. At least it got a great home. By the way, how the heck are you??? Any hot real estate deals popping your way? We miss your bright words of wisdom.
