What do you need the most while it's 104F at day and not under 77F at night?

Yeah, right: a CLEAVES like shown at Knitty.com in a airy thick, cotton merinoish wool, knitted on size 10 needles in a summerly color: turquoise violet black...

here it is:



and if every model has so much fun while taking pictures (I bursted a few times with laughter), then it's the funniest job in the world!
(and if every model has the next morning so much pain in the neck as I'm having today after this bizarre pose for the picture, its possibly a really bad job! so please: be kind. it hurts...) Wink

That came out really well, and the picture is beautiful, even if it hurt! Great job.

Love it. Great job on the Cleaves (you'll be loving it come colder weather), and sweet modeling pose. Knitty should hire you!

The more I see of cleaves, the more I like it!  Great work (I think I'd have to use black too!).  Love your modeling too!  You look like a pro!

Your cleaves turned out beautiful. When I first saw the pattern at knitty, I thought it was kind of odd. But seeing it in black...it looks awesome.  Grin

does anyone else think of So I Married an Axe Murderer when they hear the title of this pattern? Just wondering... Anyway it's lovely, and I bet you could still use it in a chilly movie theater.

thanks for your nice comments!  Smiley

I forgot to write that I made a little alteration: I worked the lower arms for the smaller size, then I made a third increase row to gain the huge puffy sleeves of the larger size.

...and I hope it doesn't remember my SO to the thingy with the axe-murderer!
