FO Friday 44: Posterity













Alright, yes, it is a tenuous link, I realize, but the school year is finally a FO ! Once I have collected Mini Diva from school today, the holidays will truly have commenced ! And I am really looking forward to it: all we need is some dry, sunny weather. Not quite so dry and hot as the USA, though, thanks.

Now for a real, proper FO, even though it isn't mine. I'm talking about it because it pertains to me a li'l bit, un poquito, ein bißchen, un peu .... it's this book, by Eskimimi:


What have I had to do with a Knitting Pocket Bible, asks you ? And well you might, sez I.

Actually, nothing. Nada. Nichts. Rien. Zip. I merely have a pattern named after me. See how understated I'm being about that ? Note the use of the word 'mere' to imply that I'm just so darned cool that this kind of event is an everyday, normal occurrence for me. Here it is:


It is the Vivianne Scarf, and it was named for me. Thank you, Mimi. And you know, I even like the color she knitted it in - it's called 'Blush'. How appropriate .... if only I weren't so cool .... or brazen.

You can buy it from Amazon.

Head on over to Tami's Amis for some lovely FOs, even though none of them feature me ....

  11. Well, what a rockin' post this Friday! I didn't know Mimi had a book coming out either. I wonder if she named other projects in it after the other mods in the group, or if you're just special. :)

    Cheers on your summer holidays! I'm happy to report that the Pacific Northwest is still in the grip of springtime-feeling weather. No high heat and humidity here. Nope. No siree Bob.
