Modeling the Handknits

I got my youngest daughter to pose with some of my most recent finished objects; she's a much prettier model than I am! This is the Blueberry Sauce Hat I made with Shelter.

And here is a great photo of the French Press Cowl, using Berrocco Vintage. After trying a number of different lacings, I decided to go with an i-cord, as it seems to be the most comfortable. But I still like the idea of using different lacings, especially if you are the adventurous sort!

I still love the Crow Cowl best; it looks like cables but it's not. Very ingenious!

Such a cutie!


  1. She sure is a cutie!!!! Oh, and the knits are pretty amazing, too.
    Have a great week,

  2. That second cowl is especially cute, but not as cute as the model!

  3. Love that smile that gets tucked in after the first photo. Nice to have a willing model for those knits.
