I met my nieces at the Roastery in Calistoga this morning, then we hit the four corners …
It was a stellar success!
It has been a couple of months since the Autumnal Equinox …
I worried I’d never finish the Autumn sweaters, having taken them almost-finished when the wildfire came, but recently I finally did finish them, and yesterday I gave them to my nieces. Photos flew off perfectly … even more artful than ever before !
Miss Seventeen’s cardigan pattern HERE , Miss Fifteen’s pullover pattern HERE.
Special thanks to Wendy , who kindly sent me some of her own buttons all the way from Canada, after having lost my button collection in the fire and could not find any locally for Miss Seventeen’s cardigan. xx
All sweater successes past ~~~ HERE.

Beautiful Beautiful Ladies, and Yummy Yummy Sweaters. xoxoxo
Thanks Sorcha,now two months since the Autumnal equinox, they’re finally done & dusted!
You’re photography always blows my mind. You have a razor keen eye.
They are gorgeous sweaters!
Thanks so much AJ xx
You’re the trout’s pajamas…or somethin’ like that, but more tasty sounding. But seriously folks…great job.
Terry, I’ll settle for trouts pajamas, thank you bunches!
So nice! The sweaters are beautiful! Lucky for you to have such willing and lovely models. 😀
Yes, I am so very lucky Kieran ~ xx
Those are just the bees knees! Great sweaters. I love the colors.
Morrie, thank you. Funny thing about the colors, I thought purple just wouldn’t work, but my nieces just have a way of making everything look right. I’m so proud of them. xx
Absolutely gorgeous sweaters and modelled expertly by your nieces. I loved seeing the previous photo shoots of your nieces in their sweaters.
Thank you Wendy, and again for the buttons. xx
You are most welcome, it was my pleasure to share some of my buttons.
It looks like you all had a wonderful time yesterday. 🙂
Your nieces are so pretty that I would like to make all the sweaters they showcase for this blog ! :))
Thank you Brigitte, from my nieces & from me! xx
Yeah 🎉 here you are again! Against all odds, you celebrated your traditional sweater event ❤ so stunning and I love it! The pullovers, your nieces, the location and your perfect view catching them in the photos!
Thank you Petra, isn’t it just more fresh & artful each time? These girls amaze me…. literally! We found a ditch on the side of a sidewalk in a back alley to add to our ‘four corners’. xx
Stunning sweaters, models and photography. I love the colours too 🙂
Thank you! x
Your nieces look so beautiful in their new sweaters! I love my cardigan and I have been thinking of making another. ( when I get my Christmas knitting finished!)
Thanks Dawn, I will love to see your new Calidez ~ xx
Youve outdone yourself again, Jen. I especially loved scrolling through the years of Sweater Success’ to see not only how the girls have grown, but also the beautiful sweaters you have created for them. they are very lucky nieces to have you in their lives.
Debbie, that archives link to the history of sweater successes has got to be the best thing I’ve got going on in this blog. Thank you xx
Man, these girls are gorgeous. Lovely to see them again. Your FO’s rock, Jen. I love them. I wanted to start your cardigan pattern but my bulky yarn stash sucks and the brown is so boring. I’ll have to buy some new yarn when the husband isn’t looking.
Stephanie, that would be most awesome if you made a Calidez! My nieces, I’m so proud of them, they and moi… we have ‘grown up’ together in this whole design thing… haven’t we? xx
