So this morning I decided to put it on again, this time with a slightly different outfit, largely so I could put on one of my favorite pairs of shoes:
|Frye Matilda Oxfords. Gosh I love these shoes.|
Problem is, the sweater is so dark that it really didn't photograph all that well, even on a sunny day like today! You really can't see the texture in the modeled pix. Please trust me when I say this sweater is 200% better in real life. And it's so soft and comfy. I'm really in love with it. So here's a bunch of spam - me trying to get a good pose:
|No, I couldn't be bothered to fix my hair today. I have too much to do!|
The photo that showed the texture and shape the best was the over-exposed one, which is kind of fun in an artsy way:
|I'm positively glowing! That's how much I love my sweater!|
Here's a shot of my vintage Vera Neumann scarf, in case you're into that kind of thing. I'm into it so much I have the same design in pink.
You may notice from the photos that the ribbing extends down below the waist, so this sweater really isn't as cropped as it appears to be. Which is a good thing! The ribbing also has lovely shaping:
Here's a better look at the completed sweater:
And what the heck - one more, just because I took it and I love my new sweater!
So there you have it. This sweater turned out even better than I'd hoped it would, but I'm afraid it may not be obvious in photos. Now, on to the next (Kim Hargreaves) sweater . . .
