The Flashing of the Stash

I know I'm late doing this -- two days late to be precise. I had taken these photos last Sunday, but hadn't had time to edit and upload them.

I got bored with dragging all of my stash out of the hutch, spreading it out on the coach, and taking photos. They look the same year after year because - hey, I'm a slow knitter and have had stuff in my stash since I started knitting in 2004.

Between that boredom and the hubbub that started over my Dickenson Pullover, I decided to do something a little different for FYS2010. That incident actually empowered me, and gave me more confidence in my body. Yes, it is the body of a 41-year-old woman, and it's not the Hollywood/fashion perfect body, but it's my body and I love it, my husband loves it, the cats love it, and anyone who doesn't love it can just look away.

Here I am, flashing my stash:





I have a collection of mint-condition (in many cases, new deadstock) vintage nighties from the 50s and 60s. I thought this to be a good time to show one off:


I also get to show off Mike's fantabulous legs too:


And, finally, a flash of the pussy:


Have a great weekend! We're off on a hike today to firm up these legs a bit more!

I like my favorite, besides the hawtness, is the look on your cat's face. They're all "I'm SO HOT AND I KNOW IT." very appropriate.

These have got to be the best yarn pictures I've ever seen. You're inspiring me to take up figure drawing again. I will be sharing these pictures with my husband in the hopes that he will become hot and bothered and rush to the yarn store.
