Zira takes a hostage

Hola Bloggin' chicas,

It's me Zira. I'm looking to set the record straight. I'd rather that you not have seen the picture of me with the beer in the last post. I thought what happened in Vegas, stayed in Vegas. I'm not really a lush. Really. Can't a girl just have a little fun? Besides I was on vacation.

You know, I'm just a simple little monkey. I loved my beautiful Noro sweater. It kept me warm this winter and I did look so smokin' caliente. Now, I've been reduced to this...

All I was trying to do was catch some sun on the beach in Santa Barbara and that crazy Indigomuse took naked photos of me. Even monkeys have their dignity. But I have fixed her and fixed her good. In addition to taking over her blog, I am holding her beloved Nikon hostage. She has lots of great photos on here that I'd bet she'd love to show you. Like pictures from her California vacation. Pictures of some recent FOs like her mohair Kyoto. Pictures from the local Spin and Knit In. But you will not be seeing these pictures until justice has been served. In return for the camera, I demand some knitted spring clothing. If you chicas wanna see some pictures, you need to post some pattern ideas in the comments. And no frumpy, dumpy clothes either. I'm a fashion monkey who needs her fix. You don't have to design the pattern, just give us some ideas for yarns and styles and I'll force Indigomuse to do the rest. The winner gets their own felted monkey finger puppet and other various and sundry goodies. The winning idea will be posted on Monday, April 25th. You have until midnight Thursday, April 21st to give it your best shot. Or the camera gets it. Comprende?

Ok, Zira, you asked for it! How about a cute, kicky swing skirt done pink merc cotton (or shiney cotton/rayon tape), a pretty little eyelette tank, and maybe a fun floppy hat? Oh, and you need some cool shades, but last time I checked, you can't knit those. If you go "girly" maybe you'll feel less agressive, Verdad?

Hiya Zira,

I definately think you need a Boogie tank and pair of those rebecca (2004) hotpants :)

you would be stylin!

Zira, you would look SO hot in a cute halter tank like Knitty's Cleo made with some variegated cotton! I think you could probably dress it up with some of Sex in the Knitty's fishnet Lolita Legs, sized down for you. I think a denim skirt knit out of rowan denim yarn would look quite sassy on you, girl! You are obviously a party girl... don't deny it! Maybe indigo will knit you a beer cozy if you are a good monkey! But watch out... if you are NOT a good monkey, Indigo will probably unravel you...

The White Trash swimsuit from Knitty would be perfect on you--in a very bold color--fuschia or chartreuse...
