I finally was able to take pictures of my Giselle sweater (a Stitch Diva pattern)! It was a beautiful day for it too! This was a top-down raglan that was a pretty easy knit. The only mod I made was to do the crochet picot trim instead of the knit one, as I learned how to crochet this summer.
I used Mirasol Nuna, which is a beautiful blend of merino wool, silk and bamboo! If you have a chance to purchase this, definitely do so! You can't really tell in the pictures, but the yarn has a slight sheen to it, probably from the silk content.
I still need to do twisted cord for the arm bands, but I might just leave them empty too. What do you think?
The only problem with the sweater that I have is that the shoulders show my bra straps in a major way. Strapless bras are evil, so I think I might just let people see my bra straps. Luckily, my hair is long enough to cover most of it. I think I'm also going to add a hook and eye closure to the side to help stabilize it a bit, although I haven't really had to adjust it much today (which is good).
Let the pictures commence!
(I love what the wind did to my hair in this picture!)
(This was the picture my husband was like "Stop squinting!" Well, I'm sorry buddy but the sun was in my eyes...)
Yep, I rock the sweater with jeans, 'cause that's how I roll. I also have a really cute brown and gold hippie skirt I can wear with it to dress it up for work or holidays. Thanks for looking!!
