Kyoto Completion/Villain Takes Hollywood
So, today was relatively productive. At least, i finished a few things so it seems that way. Perhaps most importantly among these is... Kyoto! i don't know how far Taryn has come with hers, but i know that i am damned glad to be finished with that sucker. I really enjoyed working with the yarn, which is surprising since it is super-cheapy TLC Cotton Plus and i certainly had my doubts. Had a bit of blue left over and so i started a sort of tube top/camisole-esq thing inspired by Glampyre's pattern (unreleased at time of commencement). It is my first real foray into lace, having only done simple eyelets previously. The top will basically be a simple tube with ribbing on the top and bottom, skinny straps, and a column of "Candelabra" lace running down the front and back. My mom gave me a book with about a zillion stitches in it and most of them were just too intimidating. This one is working out well, however. Perhaps Orangina will be next.
On a related note, J and i were waiting for our delicious Punch pizza and a boomer woman next to us was talking about how much she liked Orangina. Ok, great, its good. However, she pronounced it so as to rhyme with female genitalia, which conjured strange images to our active little brains. J's consisted of a peeled orange with one strategic slice missing. Teehee.
Next, I fixed up the sexy Marlow Skirt. i feel like a saucy and treacherous dame. By this, i mean that i have to walk with tiny little steps thus making my hips sway in an utterly unnatural way. Also, getting into/out of cars is quite difficult. How did those broads in the 40's do it??
Here is some lovely traditional Japanese dancing performed by the Little Flower of the North, Villain-chan:

Skirt+sweater look great, though.

you should definitely start it! it is supposed to be pretty easy to memorize, but i am still a bit daunted. size 3 needles?!?! that's sock territory. however, seeing you start will surely motivate me.
