(Wow. sorry for the fuzziness. I blame my brain, not the camera). I finished it in the car on the way to the cottage Friday night, and blocked it out on Sunday night when we got home. I didn't do a full block - I just sprayed the edges with water and kind of patted them out to lie flat.
Once I get buttons, I will get a modelled shot (possibly on me, probably on the dress form). But I'm looking forward to the fall, and wearing this with a black skirt, white blouse and great silvery grey shoes I bought a while ago. (I knew I would find a need for them...)
After finishing this, I did a little work on the chunky brown and blue cardigan, and picked up a long-neglected Montego Bay scarf in a wool-silk laceweight, but most of the weekend was taken up with getting the dock extension in, getting the ski-boat in, tending the gardens, and meeting the new neighbours (they're really nice). I've got an interesting couple of weeks ahead - some owed time off coming in fits and starts (a couple of afternoons off here, a day or two off there), so there will be time spent with my kid as he gets out of school, (we're planning on a few batches of strawberry jam), and time at the cottage (more gardens to plant, and lazing about to do).
But this was a pretty good start to my week.
