I'd love to know how to take a decent photo, but I really think that it's beyond my 4 year old camera's capabilities! I took my CPH outisde to try and get a better 'real-life' colour shot, but stupidly took the picture in half shadow.. ah well - it's a good shot to show how far I've gotten. I accidently knit the body 2 inches too long while I was watching season 3 of 24 on DVD - I'm not sure I like cropped cardy's so I decided to keep it long, and figured that if I really hate it's length, I'll frog from the bottom.. I also stupidly made one cable (right in the middle of the back!) a 12 row repeat instead of a 10 row repeat - it's not that noticable unless I point it out, but it's frustrating to know it's there.
I also listed 3 items at the store the other day, 2 of which sold, and one which sat for a couple of days. I decided to keep the one that sat, for myself.. well for Max really. I would have kept it before listing it because it was definitely my favourite, but being only a medium, I was reluctant. I shouldn't have been though, because it's a good snug fit, even over a night nappy. Mediums really are a one size fits all, which is why I tend to do them 80% of the time. This soaker was knit with the DK BFL I dyed at the Guilds dyeing day last month. I'm loving the twisted fairisle cable - it stretches beautifully over the hips giving it a really interesting look.
This is how I tend to find Max a lot of the time, which is a bit disturbing when I know he's prone to convulsions.. but all he is doing is getting down to the level of his Hot Wheels cars!
