10 year old Crochet Enthusiast: I would never wear something like that. It shows (gestures to the side of my matching skin tone bra)… things I don’t want to show. Me: oh, the side of my bra? Well, it’s not really a secret that I have boobs. *all three ten year old girls*: *riotous giggling* Me: (remembers that the word “boobs” is simultaneously embarrassing and hilarious to kids) Ah, right. 🦎 Related note: do any of my Xennials out there remember the intentionally visible bra trend? Is that coming back? 🦎 (Pattern: Encinitas Top by @irmandesign; Yarn:Oink Pigments Linen/Silk DK "Guild") 🦎 You can hear all about this project, and all the others on The Knitmore Girls Podcast, available on all of your favorite audio platforms. 🦎 #BIPOCKnitters #knitting #Knit #KnittersOfInstagram #HanddyedYarn #KnitmoregirlsPodcast #ProjectSweaterChest #HandKnit #IndieDyersOfInstagram #IndieDyedYarn #BIPOCMaker #OinkPigments #SummerKnits #FO 🦎 [Image Description: A striking, freckled and fair-skinned Iranian American woman with short, blond, curly hair is wearing an antifreeze green linen/silk knitted top with cable and eyelet accents.

Happy birthday to the co-producer of my two favorite people in the universe. 💫 Nobody knows exactly what it’s going to be like parenting multiracial kids, but when the rubber hits the road, you’ve always been there with me, shoulder to shoulder. 💫 Metaphorically speaking. You’re more than a foot taller than me, which you know is just showing off. 💫 For 43, my wish for you is a peaceful, joy-filled year, because this is your third pandemic birthday and a year with no catastrophes would be aces. 💫 Failing that, there’s always cookies and that new Star Trek show on Paramount plus, which is pretty good, too. 💫 Happy birthday, and please hide the remaining Bundtinis so that we don’t have a sugar gremlin situation first thing in the morning. 💫 [image Description: a handsome white man with buzzed, dark hair and a vandyke beard gazes thoughtfully down at a chocolate Bundtini with an extra tall candle sticking out of it, ablaze. He is clearly humoring his wife, because she said, “Pictures or it didn’t happen!”] to line break
