This has to be one of the sorriest sights I've ever photographed (click pic to super-dupersize).
On my way home from the flea market this morning, I spotted this dilapidated sewing machine table (with someone's trash on top--merciful heavens) outside the former entrance to the garage that formerly housed the indoor Chelsea flea market on weekends. The building was purchased by Marriot months ago but, so far, remains an ugly eyesore (and dumping site).
In happier news, I received my Uniqlo turtleneck shirt today, in a box large enough to hold two dozen of them.
I purchased a size Small. While the fit is trimmer than the L.L. Bean turtleneck, it's still somewhat roomy. Let's see what it looks like after washing a few times.
This is a cotton/poly blend (the L.L. Bean version was 100% cotton), though I can't tell the difference by touching it. Overall, I like it.
UPDATE: The label on the shirt reads "100% cotton" as does the paper tag. Good news!
My one gripe: no cuff on the sleeve. I think a cuff belongs on a turtleneck shirt sleeve -- it seals the warm air in, you know what I mean? Also, the sleeve on the Uniqlo shirt is nearly 2" too long. If it doesn't shrink in the dryer, I'll hem it. I guess that's how they can afford to sell these for $7.90 (well, normally $14.90).
Michael went online to pick one up for himself and discovered they're nearly sold out: just a few Extra-smalls in white, so I grabbed one.
In other news, last night I laundered and preshrank my denim: the new stuff is the lighter blue on the right. To the left is denim I picked up during the summer. I may use them separately or combine them.
And that's it.
I hope those recovering from too much Thanksgiving stuffing (he he) are on the mend.
Have a great day, everybody!
