Let me just say, right up front: I finished this sweater so long ago that I barely remember knitting it! I had to go to my Ravelry page to look for details (pattern is Rhombi, yarn is Plain and Fancy sport) and what picture did I see on my project page for this:
That’s me – duh – knitting this sweater while in Mexico – sigh. Seriously. I started it on March 24th and I finished it on July 4th and I blocked it in September when the humidity dropped enough that I figured the thing actually had a shot of drying before turning moldy. And then it sat on the back of the chair in our bedroom until Monday. I didn’t wear it and I didn’t photograph it – it just sat waiting.
So on Monday, as Dale and I were preparing to go out for a ride and then some dinner, I got inspired and I put it on. My hair looked okay, my make up was done, and the light was rather lovely. I handed Dale the camera and asked him to take some shots. The difficulty of the mug photo shoot was still fresh in both of our minds so I think Dale really made the effort and rose to the occasion.
There’s this great shot of the entire sweater.
And a nice detail shot of the back.
He captured the edging nicely in this one.
And I kind of like the way he cut off my head – but not my smile – in this photo.
There’s also, of course, the classic ta-da shot.
I felt a bit like we were taking photos for the high school year book except that back then I didn’t have wrinkles. Or glasses. Nevertheless, the photos show off the sweater nicely and I think Dale did a bang up job.
If he keeps this up I’m going to have to make him his own watermark.
