Amazing Lace - Challenge #4 - Premature Re-purposing

The question: If you bound off your lace RIGHT NOW - what could it be used for?

The challenge: One photo of your lace in a reasonable approximation of its potential use at this very moment.

Sigh.

You may wish to avert your eyes right now if you're the squeamish type.

Presenting: The Butterfly Bikini.

And here is the real Official Team Portrait for this leg of the Race:

That is the number of stitches I've knit on it in the last two weeks. I have been, umm, otherwise occupied. Time to get back at it ..........

My EYES!!! And I thought after David Hasselhoff was on Jay Leno I couldn't see anything worse!!!

(OK, maybe David Hasselhoff was worse. Especially when they showed that clip of his video, which I had blocked from my memory until then.)

Very funny!

janna said...

Oh, my! Perhaps all of our WIPs should be modeled by men who've been hitting the gym... (And your new kitty looks so sweet - good for you for adopting her!)

Dave --

Thanks for visiting my site! I like your new blue drawstring bag, and I'm envying the yarn that's going to your pal.

Good luck on the Amazing Lace!

DebbieJ said...

OMG THAT was NOT what I thought you meant by squeamish HAHAHA kidding. I have been following your blog since I stumbled on it from Anne's (knitspot). I read it with my son who is bound determined to make "boys knitting" famous, I think I'll have him skip THIS photo HAHAHAHA! Great job!
