Two mirror shots - looks like Maya needs to do a little Windex on hers, yes?
I love it. It's the Divine Cardigan and it's from Ella Rae Book 7. In Louisa Harding Nautical Cotton, which was on gauge for the Ella Rae yarn it calls for. Now if only the sweat would stop dripping down my back from posing for this shot. It's dark, but you can see the fit. Yep, The Fit. For once, I subbed yarn and didn't get bit in the ass later for not swatching

Outside, the color isn't right, but you can see the whole sweater.

The neckline was a pain in the butt, but fully worth it. Pick up 137 sts, double them and do ribbing for 3 rows. ugh. But it works. The ruffle is pretty subtle, and it lays just right - woo hoo.

Just look at those cute little 50 yr old buttons. So glad I can find a use for some of 'em..

One last shot of the bobble-less front.

And now we're off to find some sand and water for the afternoon! I'm bringing cold beer.

The deck light is so much better than that at Knitsmiths - The color just looks so vibrant in the sun. Great job!

Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! I will have to look up that book. I especially like the v-neck with the little bit of ruffle. You've done wonderful work.
