Does everybody else remember scissor-cut pizza lunches? (With thanks to mimi smartypants.) Also check out the entire directory of photos; they're hysterical.

As promised, pix of Miss Beek's Rachel top:
Being washed in Dr. Bronner's; check out how purple the water is. The dye is clearly not quite colorfast.
Spread out for blocking. I blocked this because I (stupidly) cast on too tightly, plus I wanted to adjust the sizing slightly to make the piece longer rather than wide. (Being mostly garter, it wants to stretch O-U-T.
As I said, this piece is seriously fuzzy, so it's hard to point out details. Thus a tiny bit of Photoshopping for help. The beads are some I'm considering for embellishment; they're much closer in color to the tank than my monitor is reading.
I loved this pattern; it knits up extremely quickly and works exactly as written. I'm considering knitting Beek one of the Anna tops too, just because I love the design.
And now for something completely unexpected: my beloved Rigby. Is he not the cutest wirehair terrier tyke you've ever seen?? I love this guy.
