I didn’t make it all the way to Calistoga for the actual Lincoln Street locale, but we improvised in St Helena instead. After meeting at St Helena Roastery, for coffee (please tell me you don’t notice the drop of chocolate syrup from Miss Fifteen’s mocha, spilled on her Lincoln Street before the photo shoot… lol!), we then took the photos against the stone of the St Helena Catholic Church, then went to Lolo’s Consignment Shop. Lastly we had lunch at Villa Corona, and walked around the Main Street a while too. Absolutely colossally wonderful summer day spent together with my nieces!
Now you can make your own Lincoln Street sleeveless …
and the pattern is available !
Details are HERE.
Oh Wow!! The girls are becoming such individuals. Gorgeous ladies. The sweaters are going to be instant classics!
Aren’t they? Its amazing how much they’ve grown and become skilled at being photographed too, isn’t it!
SO very grown up. When did that happen!? I feel like I bent down to pick something up and when I looked up there they are all grown up. I still remember them hanging out of the loft room window shouting for me to come play…..
Yes, it is exactly like that, exactly. Short tiny distraction not noticing, then BANG… all grown up. lol.
Oh, and notice how the iron oxide orange in the stone reflects in their hair? A camera lens is so color selective!
That is adorable. Now show it on an old lady like me! And over a shirt.
Thank you! I think under a shirt, or light cardigan, would be a lovely and modest alternative! xx
Stunning summer tops expertly modeled by your gorgeous nieces.
PS I didn’t notice the drop of chocolate. 🙂
Right, not until I mentioned it. So funny, I freaked out , taking a close-up of Miss Fifteen, as I thought it was a dropped stitch! Then, realizing it was only a drip of chocolate syrup, I laughed, but of course, Miss Fifteen was so embarrassed. It was a delightful bit of funniness actually. xx
Awe, they are lovely! The sweaters and your nieces!
Thank you Dawn ~~ xx
Hi, Jen love the sweaters, they look great and couldn’t fit better to your beautiful nieces. They should feel very lucky to have such a great knitter and designer as their aunt. Lovely.
Thank you Iris! Look for this pattern in your Ravelry Library 🙂 xx
Those tops are as cute as a bug’s ear!
Thanks Karin ~~ how about making one! 🙂
..oh yes! I go with all the other comments: just stunning and so gorgeous! (of course, both….. grown up girls and the tops)
so well done Jen. curious to see more projects coming up on ravelry, from this design!
Aww Thank you Petra, you’re a great support! xx
Such fun! They are lovely! I didn’t notice the mocha until you mentioned it. 😉
I sure wanted to make sure everybody noticed it…lol! xx
Lol I bet she appreciated it!
I just think its hilarious, and hope to do more chocolate spilling on future photo shoots. 🙂
Lol I used to think about getting a piece of muslin, spilling all sorts of things on it randomly- mustard, wine, ketchup, chocolate, sprinkle oil on it. Then wash it and make a shirt out of it. Additional spills would be enhanced design details. Maybe I should move forward with that idea!
“Sorry for the pattern ;-)”, love love the shooting with your nieces!
Well done to all of you !!!
Every photo shoot ought to have some chocolate spilled somewhere, don’t you think? Thanks for the encouragement! xx
