So I have a problem, I knit a lot of designs but don’t model them (because lets be frank, the skinny girls sell the patterns). I didn’t really have a go-to model for when I finished a knit design which was becoming a sort of problem. Knits just look better when they are modeled. Well that problem has been solved. The Mr’s business partner’s wife is drop dead gorgeous and agreed to model some shawls for me. So today we went out to a local park and I drug out some old shawls to get some better photos. They turned out amazing.
Fall fields looks way better on her than it ever did on me.
Channel Islands Shawl. Still one of my most favorite designs ever and this is probably my most worn shawl I own.
Rough Seas Shawl which I have completely re-written and used my fancy chart software for.
Sweet Corn which looks way better on a body than it ever did on a branch.
She’s amazingly gorgeous right? Yeah, I find it a little intimidating but I worked through it. I had to hear the Mr’s voice and his parents in my head the whole time telling me that we are all good at different things. Hell, I played in Carnegie hall when I was 17 which a lot of people never do in their lives…EVER. So it’s not like I’m a looser but ya know, I might have made a complete ass out of myself talking too much and being a dork. Only time will tell.
All patterns are available through Ravelry (and the links are on my pattern page if your interested). I’m really excited about working with Shauna in the future because she’s so tiny (ie less yarn consumed for patterns, meaning more because they costs me less) so the sweaters I’ve wanted to do for quite a while will fly off the needles. I’ve already ordered yarn for one I’m going to be starting shortly. It’s Robin Hood inspired, but in a good way.
