Moving on!


Thanks for all the commiseration on my gray sweater debacle!¬†Kirstin¬†asked if Photoshop would be helpful in editing out the pooling spots. I’ve gotten pretty good at editing out the stray hair or tree branch, but I’m afraid making the middle part of the sweater look like the top would be well beyond my abilities. See all the light bits on the top?

IMG_6796Yeah, I wouldn’t even know where to start. Plus, I like to keep my samples in photo-ready condition, since there’s always the possibility of trunk shows, the need for photo reshoots, etc.–and wouldn’t it be a cheat if I managed to fix the photo so it looked good and then showed up with the pooling monstrosity?

Anyway, I’m moving on! Due to a sudden and all-consuming love affair with this purple Cephalopod yarn (and, okay, a desire for some damn color and texture after all that endless gray stockinette!), I have the purple vest blocking already:

Grape vest blockingYum. It really looks good enough to eat, doesn’t it? Its working title is the Grape Vest, because it reminds me of the luscious spectrum of purple grapes you get at the beginning of the fall season. I’ll probably change the name, but it’ll always be Grape Vest to me….

    Loving the purple yarn, such a rich colour. Shame about the grey top because otherwise its a great shape and fit

    WHOA! The purple yarn looks beyond delicious! You’re working through it quickly. I can’t wait to see how it looks in its finished form.

    Yeah, I figured it wasn’t quite the same as magic, and I totally understand your reasoning. The new purple stuff looks way more fun to be working on right now anyway!
