Meet Priscilla - modeling my new scarf...



Today marks the debut of my scary new model, Priscilla. It's such a long story - I'll try to make it brief. I really wanted a dress form because one of my 2006 goals is to learn to sew. But we went to a furniture / fixtures close out sale & I found this thing for about $16 so I got it. I figure I can use it to model the stuff I'm selling on ebay & maybe rig it into a dress form eventually. If not, it's less than $20 & the entertainment value is definately at least worth that much! We named "her" Priscilla after the transsexual in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, since it is technically a man but will be modeling primarily woman clothing. Patrick has banished her to my reading / craft room for fear of waking up in the middle of the night & putting bullet holes in it. I have to agree with that! Be on the look out, Priscilla will be making sporadic appearances here.

On to the scarf - it is the same Spiral 'Ruffled' Scarf previously featured here but I knit it in Sierra - for me! I love it but I haven't worn it yet. Shame on me! I am still singing it's praises though, it has definately been my favorite thing to knit to date - which is pretty obvious since I knit 3 of them.

I think you should knit her or him (not sure what he/she prefers) a man poncho to wear between gigs - I think there is a pattern at lionbrand.com.

I TOTALLY love this scarf! I fell in love with the first on you knitted, but this one is even more beautiful (is that possible??) I am jealous- I really need to learn something other than garter stitch! By the way- love Priscilla- yet another fabulous yard sale find??? See you Saturday!
