Because I managed to use two more! (what's that, about 2,000 to go?) Don't know how well they photograph, but they're navy blue leather ones, and the color in the center of the buttons has faded, in little circles - not completely unlike the giant redwoods - but much smaller.
The finished Drops Cardigan (couldn't they have given this a real name?) came out pretty well. I only changed one thing - I left out the button hole at the top of the neck. The whole neckline closed up was a little too bulky and funky looking. But with two, I like it alot.
Below you can see the fit - also not so bad. I was concerned about the wing-y ness of the A line, but it isn't too pronounced when you see it all together. Of course, in this particular photo, it's pretty wingy, but that's got something to do with the camera arm.
Not sure what's with all the diagonal photos. Hmm.
Above is the obligatory shot in Maya's mirror, although I really should have a mirror of my own. To get these lovely shots, I take her mirror, prop it up on her stool under her window, and try not to trip on the Groovy Girls. Squatting down a little, so I fit in the mirror I take the shots. Then I go downstairs and assure her I've put everything back where I found it, although she never believes me and goes upstairs to check, always managing to find the one wrapper or broken ponytail holder among the piles of crap on her dresser that I chucked in the trashcan.
What's a new mirror cost, like $10? Let's see if I ever get around to it.
And lastly, a little teaser for you. Here's a corner of Woven, my next design project.
Stay tuned! I see Babycables has made it onto a few queues on Ravelry (thanks, thanks, thanks) and just wanted to add that if anyone wants the PDF, I finally took 10 minutes and found a free PDF host so the pattern is linked on my sidebar. (Old dog = new tricks! yay me)
