Sweater Success !

021
A very bright but chilly November morning, in the usual places we photographed, the ‘four corners’ of Lincoln & Washington Streets in Calistoga. This year, things are quite different all around.

First of all, what normally would have been the actual time of equinox, the infamous and devastating wildfire of Lake County held things off for two months. But here we are, back to our familiar places. . .

Other things about this year, as predicted, Miss Twelve is now Miss Thirteen, and has grown so tall that she is now beginning to tower over everybody, including her ‘big sister’, Miss Fifteen (but very soon-to-be-sixteen!).

Miss Thirteen is now in Middle School, and on the volleyball team (they smashed all the other teams and came in first for the season!) and Miss Fifteen is excelling in cross-country running 3rd year in a row, and about to go to the post-season competitions ~~  and about to get her drivers license too!

Since all is going well with them, I’ll get back to the business of the sweaters . . .

These two being modeled are samples of Calidez.

I knit these Autumn Sweaters as I did the prototype, in Cascade 120 superwash ~~ extremely lofty and poofy yarn~~ and these pullovers knit up at lightening speed being bulky-weight yarn, and the instant impression from my nieces was ‘oh they’re soooo soft ‘.  So I recommend this yarn if one wants a ridiculously soft but still pure wool experience.

And then . . . 

after the photo shoot we went on a book-buying spree for Miss Thirteen’s birthday !

I think this Autumn Sweater design for my nieces is up to par and is deserving of the usual title of  ‘Sweater Success!’   Now, those of you who are new to this blog,  you must see Sweater Successes past, go HERE and be sure to scroll all the way down~~ to 2010!

    • Thanks ! My nieces have been my inspiration for the time I’ve been knitting (and designing) and they have grown so much to be a very important part of Jenjoyce Design. 🙂

    • Oh Lizzi, I wasn’t sure how you missed it except for the fact that you had been vacationing in Mediera! Yes, there was icecream, but Miss Fifteen had gone to use wifi down the road or something, lol, wasn’t interested in icecream…so didn’t do the traditional Icecream Photo… (( next spring!)) Also, Miss Thirteen had her bd present of a book-buying spree so that is different! ((she is a terrific writer by the way)).

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
