Look what I got...
Isn't it just gorgeous?
I love the colour, it's delightfully soft, it's perfectly slouchy.
Way better than I could have imagined. And to my un-knitting eye looks very complicated (sorry Kelly).
It arrived this afternoon and I wore it on the school run, my girls were very jealous - not often Mum gets something special. It feels good.
I think it's fair to say that I LOVE it. I've been smiling to myself all afternoon.
Almost all afternoon. It did of course mean that I had to photograph it, and I thought it only fair that it should be worn. But that meant a picture of me.
I hate having my picture taken, just like I hate hearing my voice recorded, it makes me cringe.
Over at Lola Nova she recently set a challenge. To take self portraits and put them out there for all to see and encouraged us to take part. This made me physically squirm. I instantly dismissed myself from this as it just seemed like torture to me. But it keeps creeping back into my mind.
Maybe I could conquer my hate of the camera on me.
Maybe I could learn to look at myself and not pick out all my flaws.
Maybe I could do this.
So this is my only contribution. I took 92 pictures, I hate most of them. But I did learn that there's a remote control for the camera - and that was fun!
So a big thank you to Kelly, it's perfect, I will be wearing this all winter.
