Due to extreme laziness on my part I have not sewed buttons on my Grace which took me months to knit and months to block. However, I finally got around to weaving in the ends and decided since I usually don't button my sweaters anyway this was not going to stop me from wearing it.
The next problem...photographing myself.
I don't have a tripod doohickey and photographing a whole sweater always poses a
So this afternoon harbored a great experiment to solve this problem.
I enlisted my lovely, genius, amazing five (AND A HALF, as she is always quick to point out) year old bebe to take pictures of her mama wearing the Grace cardigan.
"Hi Mama! What are you looking at, by the way? You need to look at me."
"Where are the buttons mama?"
"Oh, I forgot to put them on."
"It would look better with buttons."
"Okay Mama, I don't like looking at your back".
Not sure what she meant.
Being a top model is tiring.
"Make a silly face mama!"
I love my new-ish sweater!
The Heritage sock yarn is easy to knit with and makes for a super soft and cozy sweater.
For such a light knit it's very warm, and the color is vibrant and makes me happy.
I love the lace, the tiny garter detail, and I loved knitting it.
Knitting a sock yarn sweater is a serious time investment,
but this sure was a fun way to celebrate finishing it!
My little buddy photographer! On the go!
