So this is the third FO I've posted in a couple of days...I'm not a fast knitter, I just waited a long time to have a photoshoot...like Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire, I have to rely on the kindness of strangers for digital pictures!
This is Simply Marilyn from Interweave, they've made the pattern free on their website since it was so popular. It was supposed to be in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky...softest yarn on Earth. I did it in a Norweigan wool from elann.com, Gjestal Naturgarn. It's light but kind of scratchy...I think this will be a house sweater, because a large bulky sweater worn off the shoulder just looks kind of funny outside the pages of artfully styled knitting magazine. I should've listened to Maggie Rhigetti and Elizabeth Zimmerman, they both tell us to not be swayed by stuff like lilacs, puppies and soft focus lenses!
With the collar up I can impersonate my favorite artist, Bjork! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v149/cirilia/knitting/marilyn.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v149/cirilia/knitting/marilyn2.jpg
This isn't the first time she has influenced my knitting--this was last year's Halloween costume, the swan is just a Fun Fur scarf with a head attached! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v149/cirilia/costume.jpg
