Finished Cowichan

By Cedar | January 21, 2013


(Thanks to my friend Erin for taking these pictures)

Remember the cowichan I posted about way back in August? Well, it is finished and has been for quite a long time now. I have been meaning to get pictures of it for the past two months, but in all honesty I don’t really like taking pictures of myself. It is sort of funny that one of the reasons I wanted to start this blog was to post outfit photos. I think I have finally come to the realization that I am neither that great at them nor do I enjoy doing them–I always feel so silly standing around showing off the clothes I wore. So, there it is. I think I am done with them, well, unless it is an item like this that I made and feel the need to document.

Anyway, back to the sweater. It came together very quickly. I think it took a total of six weeks, working mainly in the evenings for a few hours after the baby went to bed. It was still very hot here when I finished knitting so I didn’t finish stitching it all up until mid November, when the leaves finally started to change and the cold set it. It is so comfy and cozy on cold days. I wear it around the house and out to early morning park dates with friends. It does get a bit too hot to wear once it reaches about 65, but we had a recent cold streak where I pretty much lived in this sweater.

Here are the details.

    I feel the same way about posting outfit photos, it can feel so weird! That and I always look like I have three chins, but that’s a different story.

    Anyway, love the sweater! I’ve only been knitting for a few months and have zero skill whatsoever, but I always love seeing other peoples’ finished projects.

    Thank you Beth! I have only been knitting a year and a half, but have learned so much in a short amount of time. Keep with it!

    Your skills astound me! It’s beautiful! But I can’t hide my crushing disappointment that you are not posing like those models on the pattern photo.

    Oh I’ll miss your outfit posts! It’s good to evolve though and do what fits your life now.

    I can’t believe you knit that! I mean I can, but I’m just always so impressed when people do big knitting (or sewing) projects like that.

    Thank you! It is actually the first big project I have ever completed, though it wasn’t as much work as I expected it to be, it really went together quickly!
