They say that the only way to get domestic help these days is to breed it. The same is true for models!
I got an email from Kerrie of KAL Media on Tuesday evening wanting a pattern for an up and coming bookazine. As usual, she gives me LOTS of time: this time everything to be at the office by Friday!!
The Old and New vest is one I got ready for Ravelry Day. It was in the fashion show there, but I only had pix on mannequins not real models. Fortunately Wednesday was lovely, and Nick not working, so he came down.
These are a couple of the shots I got:
The vest is knitted in J&S 2 ply jumper weight, using their un-dyed yarns.
As he was here, and the weather was good, I took the chance to do a few other garments. The Burnside Vest was another pattern prepared for Ravelry Day. This one is knitted in Frangipani 5 ply yarn:
The dog is Bess and she belongs to Nick – model and accessory come together!!
I got the fiddling done, and the CD with the pattern and pixs off to Lou in time. If only the Orkney weahter were that kind all the time!!
(Both patterns are available from my Etsy shop.)
