May I Present...

Colorway unknown until I find the ball ball
What can I say that hasn't already been said before about this sweater. I LOVE it ten thousands times over! There will be more in my future.
Thank you Melissa for creating such a wonderful pattern!

Most of these pictures are headless today because my hair hasn't been cut in two months!



Obligatory dog shot.

The hand on the hip shot!

(Just found out that this is the best way to take a picture if you don't want your arms to look fat. Which in this case really doesn't apply because my arms are covered.)

The reflective shot. Sorta loses it's meaning without my serious face. This just looks like I'm about to fall over!

Calm, reflective...thinking about all the things I should be doing versus taking pictures of myself.

Just hanging out on a Friday. Is it Happy Hour yet?

For Mom, because I know she will download this one, frame it, and put on her desk.

Yay! Actual knitting content!

Happy weekend everyone!

Love that last shot, I thought it was going to be the one where you found out that it was indeed Happy Hour!

The sweater is absolutely gorgeous, I think my favourite one of these so far. I've been back and forth over making this but yours has convinced me that I need to make it. Lovely.

Happy hour? - it's 5 o'clock somewhere....

you are so flippin' adorable! the sweater is fab, too! I might need to jump on this bandwagon. Have a wonderful weekend, Jane. :)

Love it! Great sweater that looks like it fits you perfectly. I know that's a big accomplishment. (for me, at least)

Meg said...

Beautiful sweater, and great pictures, too!

Wow - it came out great, great, great! I shortened mine because I thought the regular length would be unflattering, but on you it's long and lean... I suppose that could perhaps be because you actually ARE long and lean. But still, I'll give it a try on my next one.

Oh, and P.S. Isn't it kind of awful that you COULD wear a wool sweater in June? I'm FREEZING right now.

And P.S. 2: Of COURSE it's happy hour. On Fridays you only have to wait till noon.

Love the sweater, both the pattern and the color. Looks great with your jeans. I need to put it in my queue. And I agree with the happy hour friday philosophy!

The tea leaves cardigan looks great. I have been seeing so many fabulous ones lately that I am starting to think I should knit one for myself. Your hair looks great, dont know what you were worried about. Love the last pic!

RW said...

I am duly impressed.
I am quite loving your porch/deck area as well.
The sun has arrived today as promised so we will shed our sweaters.

Rachel said...

Oh my...I love it! It looks simply perfect on you Jane! Beautiful collage of the finished item as well...I can see why you are so full of joy!

I finally got the yarn for mine...couldn't resist even though I tried. Maybe I'll cast on and get it done in time for fall.

Tim Judson said...

Forget the sweater. I think you hair looks good! Maybe you should always go two months without cutting it!

-What are little brothers for!
