If you haven’t yet noticed, the mid-season surprise patterns are now up on Knitty. That is exciting news in itself, of course, but another surprise awaited me in the photos of Amy’s Everlasting Bagstopper pattern: my seemingly complete and utter doppelganger!
This is more or less exactly what I look like, especially if you take a step back and view the photo from a distance of a few feet. Medium-blond hair, light skin, attached earlobes, dark plastic frames—take away the earrings, and it’s basically me you’re looking at. (Also maybe take away the army green Crocs please?)
I’m not crazy about the idea of putting photos of myself on the web, but I realize that this can’t be interesting to many people unless I provide some evidence. So here is evidence, in the form of a not-good-but-not-bad photo of me taken about three years ago:
There are a few more photos of the Knitty model Emma Jane here, which prove that the above photo is pretty much where the uncanny resemblance ends. Still, the world would probably turn inside out if Emma Jane and I ever met.
