Next, to those of you who implied that a knitted beard was in any way peculiar... well, I think you need to look at this:
It suits him, doesn’t it? Go on, admit it: it does! Thus, I feel that the creation of the beard was time (and yarn) well spent, because Shifter can wear it once my Viking party has taken place and I no longer need it.
Speaking of which, the party’s on Wednesday, and my costume is still a little on the minimalist side... in that I haven’t quite got round to doing anything other than the beard yet. But I expect it’ll all be fine: surely once the key piece has been completed, the rest just falls into place, right? No? Oh...
Crashing swiftly on, then: I have an announcement to make! If my rudimentary maths skills serve me right (doubtful, I know, but let’s wing it), I make this my 99th post. And that would mean that my next post will be... (does quick sum in head) my 100th! Hurrah!
Anyway, that being the case, it’s just possible that I may have knitted a little something for a 100th post giveaway......
..... but you’ll have to come back tomorrow to find out, because I couldn’t possibly spill the beans today :o)
