Photoshoot part 2

Following on from the photos I posted last week, of the t-shirt and hotpants combo and the leggings, here are some of the other shots that were taken.

Firstly, we have some socks photos:

The top pair are the Reversing Leaves Socks, by Cat Bordhi, from Clara Parkes' Knitters Book of Wool, in Wollmeise 100% Superwash, colourway Golden Pear. I love this colourway, it's one of my favourite Wollmeise colours, and I think it works well with this pattern. They are a little tight over the heel, which is a pain, and I haven't yet had a fitting with my model for the show for these socks, so I'm hoping she has small feet!

The second pair were finished a while back, I posted some photos of them from the pre-show party a while back, but it's always nice to get some extra photos! These are the Twinkle Twinkle Little Socks, by Aimee Skeers, in Wollmeise 100% Superwash colourway Versuchskaninchen. They are paired with a second pair of hotpants (just seen), based around the same pattern I used for the other pair in the previous post, and a jumper I made when I was 18, that I just happened to have with me on the day of the photoshoot.

Following on from these lovely shots were some photos of the brown yoked jumper of my own design that was also shown at the pre-show party. I've saved these until last because I think that they're my favourite from the whole shoot so far.

As I've said before, the pattern will be released as soon as I have time to write it up, once the show is over at the beginning of March, I'll be making another one for myself. I managed to score 10 skeins of Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK for almost nothing in the post-Christmas sales in a lovely very pale baby pink. I'm not sure what I'll use for the yoke just yet though, but I'm sure I'll find something fitting.

Speaking of Christmas, a couple of photos from the big day;

Note the Yorkshire puddings, by far the best I've ever made!

All in all, it was a wonderful day, especially as it was mine and Andrew's first Christmas away from our parents.

I hope that you all had a wonderful day too, and I wish all a Happy New Year!

  1. Gorgeous socks Michaela! I'll keep an eye out for the jumper pattern too, maybe a project for me for next winter.

    I'm currently learning to cable, after successfully finishing my knitted-in-the-round hat. There's no stopping me!

    Happy New Year to you and Andrew!! xx
