Norah, adapted

I attempted the cabeled pentagon bolero from Vogue Knitting, Winter 2006. I had fit and gauge issues. The motifs were easy to do, but the piece was awkward. I ended up leaving out several motifs and the collar. I edged the whole thing with i-cord and gave it to my mother. She likes it. I like getting rid of it. Win--win.

Why couldn't I get skinny genes?

Man, I wouldn't have minded getting the "skinny gene" either, but I so did not...!

I remember looking at the pentagon bolero and thinking "that looks interesting, but there's got to be some trick to it..."

Guess there was, eh? (Lovely, anyway, and if your mom likes it, all the better!)
