eye candy friday

Perhaps the most self-indulgent eye candy friday of all, but it actually has some knitting content, and most eye candys don’t. Check it out: My mom knit the sweater I’m wearing! Yes, this is a photo of me. It was my own idea to push up the cuffs so high, she tells me (I have zero recollection of this). I’m about 4 1/2 years old here; the photo was taken–or rather, developed–in July 1982. I just love the colors in this shot.

Edited to add: I just realized that this shot is totally Project Spectrum appropriate!

    What a great shot to have! That yellow is fabulous and it’s very cool to see that you already had such a great sense of style at 4 1/2 (referring to your alterations of the design by pushing up the cuffs) haha.

    Awwww :)

    I remember the pattern called for size “00″ needles! I couldn’t find them that small so I just made the sweater on size “0″. Which is like knitting with angel hair pasta! But worth it for such a cute kid!

    Oh my gosh! How cute are you? I love that mischievous look. And the pigtails–the sweet, sweet pigtails.

    Wow, did you ALWAYS dress to match the furniture?

    You’re totally adorable, of course, and I love the distinct fashion sense you imposed on your clothing. :)
