Eyemasks

The Zsa Zsa in me loves to sleep with an eyemask on. I admit it, I'm not a pretty sight at night. Especially since I tend to break the cardinal rule of always taking your make-up off before bed. I know it's a no-no, but at that point all I wanna do is sleep, I don't want to have to take the time to "prepare to sleep".

To wit, this was so fun and fast to knit:



and thank-you to my handsome model, who threw his masculinity aside so that I could take this shot.

I've tested it, and next time smaller needles so the weave won't let as much light in, but it's comfortable, and lays flat, which is far more important to me. It doesn't slide around which is great. Next year everyone is getting one of these in their stockings!

Oh please. I bet your model probably wears an eyemask and fluffy slippers every night!

yeah, you can't really tell in that photo, but he's actually wearing a dress.
