My mom and I
I also picked up some knit (which was actually the only thing I had actually planned on buying) so I could make a scarf with Keight's sweet braided scarf tutorial. They had SO many fun knits, but I settled for a solid and a stripe. Play it safe. I was happy to discover that these knits were the same brand (Michael Miller) so the blacks don't clash. I hate when that happens!
So, I really wanted to do a fun color combo like Keight. Yet, every color combo I tried just made me think of school colors or a sports team. So I wimped out and went with something super neutral and even went a bit dangerous with a stripe (scandalous)! Keight's tutorial was so easy to follow (once I slapped myself a few times and screwed my head on straight). I actually added a few hand stitches to the back of the braid to hold it in place and make it so I won't have to constantly adjust the fabric to make the braid just so.
Cheers to getting dressed like a normal human for the second time this week (ahem, on Friday night)!
1. I apologize for the poor lighting! I hate taking pictures inside, but it's been so gloomy and rainy here this week, plus it's getting dark outside around 6pm already.
2. I wish I could take a "modeling" photo without looking so doofy! Sheesh!
Have a great weekend! We're hoping to do something fun (and fallish) tomorrow!
