Knits In Action

My sister and hubby very kindly donned their woollies during what is the tail end of New Zealand's summer and took some requested photos of the garments that I made them:
As you can see Nick's vest does indeed fit perfectly....so relieved...and he looks rather dashing in it!


I designed and made this sweater for my sister more than a year ago and still haven't done anything about writing up the pattern!! This was partly due to the fact that I thought I wanted to change the raglan to a set-in sleeve...but now that I see it again on Beth I quite like how it looks....neckband ribbing is looking a bit baggy however.....must revisit this pattern soon!

Big kisses to Beth and Nick for lovely modeling!

NICE! I LOVE a stripe vest and the colors you picked are perfect....Not enough time in the day to get everything done is there? I like the sleeve as is.....

Beautiful work Gudrun!
You must get to that sweater pattern! It's wonderful. I know how it is though. Too little time.

How nice to have the back drop of picturesque New Zealand for the photos.

Love the vest, it really suits him! And the blue sweater is really nice too. You two look just like each other!

I like the vest, well done on the arm ribbing, mine is always really "buckle - y". I kind of like the looser turtle neck, more comfortable to wear. Beautiful sweaters and wonderful photos!
