(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.
