The ends are all woven in. Blocking is done. The pins are removed. I have a new sweater!
Sometimes I wish there were two of me – one to use the camera and the other I could boss around to pose. I used the self timer on the camera and mostly felt silly – but I liked the plain background of a purple wall in my house. Anyway, this photo was the best of the bunch. I remembered that you should give your model something to hold or do while posing – makes the person relax and you can get better photos. So I grabbed what was nearby.
On the whole, I like this sweater – it came out a bit too big, but that’s my own fault – somewhere in the yoke area I started following the instructions for the next size up and once I realized that I just stuck with it. It’s a comfy sweater and warm. I’m pleased.
