Photographic evidence

Back from camping, and evidence that Cobblestone is done, blocked and used:

Posing on a huge eucalyptus log (site of many campground games)

And in action, with my sister being Running Woman:

The camping trip was great, although my most apparent souvenir is a walloping head cold. Cold or no cold, laundry goes on -- camping trips seem to about quadruple the amount produced. Fortunately it's a lovely day here to hang out lots of wet clothing.

It's good to be home.

Specs: Cobblestone, by Jared Flood
12 balls of Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed in color 06
size 7 needles
Mods: went down a needle size on cuffs; added waist decreases

I'd go down an additional 10-15% in the sleeves and perhaps the body as well -- it's definitely a guy's sweater, and she's thin enough that it's a big sweater to wear over other shirts. Good for camping!

So pretty! Love the action shots! Head colds are making thier way around everywhere. Hope you feel better soon.

Wow, modeled shots are one thing...action shots are awesome! Great sweater. I love the color. So autumnal. It looks lovely out there--I miss eucalyptus.

That sweater looks fabulous on her! Of course, I'm sure it looks more fabulous on you.

Hip, hip, hooray!! What a great finished sweater, good job! :0)

And it looked even better in person--cozy and wooly, with the orange contrasting so gorgeously with all the surrounding trees. I like the 10-15% too-bigness of it. You can't buy sweaters that fit so oversizedly perfectly. Usually you have to "borrow" them.

It looks fantastic on her! The neckline is perfect. Didja make the hat too?

Robin said...

Great Cobblestone! It looks perfect on her just the way it is.

Lara said...

Looks cozy! Great work. :)

Yay! Cobblestone looks very comfy and your sister is clearly enjoying it a lot. Well done!

The head colds are definitely making the rounds. I had the local cooties on Thurs and Friday of last week. Ugh.

Yay! Looks great! I can't even remember the last time I finished something. Ugh!
