I finished my sweater the other day…

but I still can’t get good pictures of it.

Remember that time when I said I could totally knit a cabled sweater out of black yarn and it would be fine? Wrong. I mean, the sweater is fine, the sweater is great, but the photography is proving tricky, as the above proves. I think I might have to recruit someone to be a human tripod for me and get some shots outside in the sun, if I want a chance of the pretty cables showing through.

In the meantime, I spun up some yarn…

(35% merino, 35% alpaca, 30% wensleydale; 620 yds/45g)

…and knit it into a swatch for a new design, which will probably be released next month. Hopefully it will be easier to photograph than the sweater.

    Beautiful sweater! You can kind of see the cables in the first pic, but I’d love to see some better pictures. :-)

    That sweater is amazing! I really have to applaud your dedication; I knit one sweater and don’t see myself ever doing another.

    It looks so great! I love the way the collar flips up a bit.

    Also that second picture is the best ever.
