This is how far I've gotten so far on the yarn I was winding up in the kitchen a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is called "Cowl of Kindness", from Knitting Philistine's blog. At the rate I am knitting this, I will be wearing it next winter. Sigh.
Above are 2 pics of yours truly (Feb 8th) modelling my new purchase of Lash Blast mascara in Black Cabernet. A fashion photographer I am not. It was not easy (nor obviously too successful) shooting myself in the face, by myself, but I am so pleased with this product that I had to try. The pics don't do the mascara (or myself) any favours, but believe me, this stuff is AWESOME. Cover Girl has done it right. Cheap, readily available, easy to put on and take off, and makes each eyelash do the work of a dozen, WITHOUT clumping. What's not to love?
