My camera saw a lot more action this week. First, I took it – along with my new 24mm lens and a circular polarizer filter – to the library on Tuesday. Our library is next to City Hall, which has a lovely little park with walking trails. I’m delighted with how much landscape fits into the frame
and the clarity of the water.
I also love the little park!
On Wednesday, it came with me to Katie’s (this time with the 50mm lens and no filter). I was happy to hand the camera to Katie. and even happier to find these three images.
And this afternoon, I finally took some “modeled” shots of the finished test knit (Ravelry details here).
I had planned to share this with y’all last Friday (I finished and blocked the piece on Tuesday and bought the buttons Thursday), but I didn’t get the urge to attach all 33 buttons until Sunday morning.
Rather than sewing them on, I used 4″ pieces of the linen tied into square knots and trimmed. It took about an hour.
Turns out styling the piece is the “tough” part! It’s really versatile!
But I’ve been unable to duplicate the very cool look that Melanie models (maybe she’ll include a styling guide in the pattern).
Today was the test knit deadline so we expect the pattern to be published shortly. Highly recommend – it’s a very fun piece to knit and wear!
