sometimes i feel like this

i would be so much more motivated to ride my bike if furry animals would join me and clap along to my meanderings! (it would also help if it wasn't always so crazy hot out - or when not hot, raining.)

last night i finished up gretel and i love it! the yarn i used wasn't very drapey so i needed to pin down the back a bit to give it that true beret effect (otherwise it looks like a big colorful cabley puff on my head). photos to come, because the camera was busy last night...

stylized beauty shot!

awkward pose shot!

beige was having way too much fun taking photos - i had to extract her from the camera! anyway, i wanted to take these before i gave up the sweater so that i'd have something to put with the pattern when i finally type it up. i have to say - this sweater is SO soft and the blue sky cotton is surprisingly warm! i love it!

time to finish my teriyaki tofu burger (yum!).


Did someone say 'knitting'? said...

Hi, I have already commented on this lovely sweater on Craftster, but I just wanted to say thanks so much for sharing your pattern!

What a beautiful sweater! I am attempting to knit this, it will be my first sweater. Do you have the sizes for M and L posted anywhere yet? If so I have been unsuccessful in finding them.I just finished casting on for the collar piece. Absolutely beautiful and I hope I can manage to work this out! If not I'll come back to it when I'm a better knitter! I love the long sleeves!
