Mom and dad were here this weekend, and mom decided to go with a single button (which others in the knitalong have done, to great success) and very little overlap, though she could have. She picked the button placement, and I sewed it on then and there. It’s now in Maryland with her, no longer my responsibility. Unfortunately, temps are pushing 90 so she will have little to no opportunity to swath herself in wool in the near future. Still, it’s done!
She twirled around and swished her ass to show off the back of the jacket, presumably, so I snapped a shot of that, too.
The light was a little glaring but I just couldn’t make her step into the 95+ heat for the sake of the little blog!
Dad posed in his socks first, and without prompting did some fashionable front and back shots, but I turned off the flash and they were sadly dark and out of focus. The first shot, with the flash on, wasn’t nearly so styling.
P.S. Thanks for all the compliments on the socks for dad! You have probably already noticed that I’m a wee bit of a perfectionist, so there was no way I was going to let that single stitch be wrong! Oh, and the socks are a tiny bit too longâ€”maybe 1/4 inch or soâ€”and dad decided they were fine as is. If they bug him, I can still go back and fix ‘em.
