Waistcoat finished

Some of you may remember that last year I mentioned that I was knitting a waistcoat/short sleeved Cardigan from Noro Designer Mini Knits by Jenny Watson. I got the knitting finished at the end of last year and then it languished on the finishing pile waiting to get the seams stitched up until I gave myself a boot up the backside and got it done.

So pretty...but what I like best is that picture! IT reminds me of an oldfashioned picture of a Mama and her babe :)

Congrats on the waistcoat, it's gorgeous! And I agree with the other admirers of the photograph: the composition is perfect, and you are both looking straight at the lens, which bonds you together - stunning!

Beautiful waistcoat, Karoline. Congratulations on your finish.

The portrait of the two of you is stunning! Did your DH take it?

Sheila said...

The same struck me about that pic as it has some others. It's such a lovely warm yet formal pose with Rosie on your lap. Love the waistcoat too. I wish I was a knitter especially when I see something this nice but I only have one pair of hands! Bx

What a beautiful picture Karoline. I hope you had this one blown up and framed. It looks like a painting.
