Anyone ever read the Asterix and Obelix comics? I have quite a few of them from when I was a little kid. I got hooked while on a solo trip to visit my family in Bavaria when I was about 10-ish. My favorite was Asterix and Cleopatra. The cover actually says "The greatest story ever drawn: 14 litres of Indian ink, 30 brushes, 62 pencils, 1 hard pencil, 27 erasers, 1984 sheets of paper, 16 typewriter ribbons, 2 typewriters, 366 pints of beer went into its creation!" I love this opening. Even at 10, I thought it was so clever. Anyway, throughout the book, Asterix, Obelix, the druid Getafix and anyone who sees her are completely smitten with Cleo's nose. "Oh, that nose!" That's what I think of when I see this photo.
The crocheted jewelry, seen above, will be a pattern in the upcoming issue of Crochet me. There's something else I'm wearing here that's a little peekaboo for another pattern in the issue, not written by me. I just added my own tweaks.
