Someone asked me to model this!
A KH knitting buddy asked me to try and model my sweaters sometime, rather than just showing them on the floor, laid out flat.

Well, you know...I hate my photos...but tonight I tried to get a few decent shots...
and here are a couple photos, modeling my latest FO, the Hallett's Ledge Cardigan.









I don't look too bad for a plump ole gal, do I? Anyway, should have taken these photos in daylight...the sweater details would have been better...but hey...tonight was the night. My hair was done. My makeup was on. The sweater was on. Things were about as good as they were gonna get. Tomorrow I'll be a wreck again.

Looks great...you and the sweater! And just love that long ribbing on the sweater. I swear I'm gonna try making an adult sweater for myself someday...someday soon!

Thanks Jan! The nicest part was this: although it is Blackwater Abbey Irish Wool...it didn't feel itchy next to my skin AT ALL.

Of course, I use the most extreme method of blocking for all Irish Wool: full immersion and soak in Unicorn Fiber Wash, followed by a full immersion rinse and soak in Unicorn Fiber Rinse...squeeze excess water out...roll in thirsty terry towels...and block out to shape...leave til bone dry.

This method of blocking will TAME any yarn! But totally necessary for Blackwater Abbey. And it submits to blocking so nicely, and looks more beautiful when dry! I can hardly believe its transformation.

BWA is particularly nice for cabled designs, and designs with a lot of intricate pattern stitching. It really pops those details!

It creates a very crisp cardigan. It doesn't pill, EVER.

Wow! That sweater is gorgeous and all those cables are amazing! I especially love that you modeled it yourself and took your own pictures. You look fabulous in it. I truly despise seeing a pattern for a bigger-than-size-10(or 12, 16, 20 or 24!) article of clothing being modeled by someone who is obviously a size 2. I think it's false advertising and should be outlawed!

Nice job!
