I thank you, beautiful readers, for waiting so long with me for these photos to be up. The weather in Oregon has been spastic, changing it’s mind from rain, sun, cloudy and everything in between on an hourly basis. But they are finally here! I had so much fun with my talented photographer friend and future roommate (which means much more photography!) Michael Banh as we attempted to take these while a class of over 100 biology students were walking by. Yeah, that was awkward.
Looking back, knitting this sweater was not too bad. Truthfully, I ended up practically making up the entire pattern as I went. The sizing and overall shape came out perfectly. I studied old photos of Land Girls as well as modern adaptions of their attire (such as the show Land Girls) in hopes of making it as accurate as possible. I purposefully knit it fairly tight, and it ended up only taking about 850 yards of worsted weight!
Okay, enough of me jabbering, you probably want to see some photos.
Now I feel ready to join the Women’s Land Army.
Oh wait, I think I need some stockings… 😉
