The skies were perfect blue & sunny, and we had a terrific time for photographing Spring Tees 2014 ! This year, the design Penny Candy Tee has made it all the way to a published design, and I managed to get it all up and available in time to post the pattern ~~ right over HERE. What a crescendo, happy beautiful faces, and stellar lighting, with charm that just blew my socks off. I couldn’t believe my eyes, how much these girls have learned in the skills of modelling knitwear for their auntie. I am even getting a little teary just thinking about it. But on with the show !
The first always to be photographed is the mint green bank building of Old Town Calistoga . . Then we cross Lincoln and shoot against the terra cotta wall outside of Brannon’s Restaurant for our usual series of slightly goofy shots . . . .
Then we go to the corner outside of Hydro Grill.
People were having breakfast inside
watching us through the window seemed intrigued at what was going on just outside…
Last year’s addition , the ‘tree hugging’ shot outside of All Seasons Bistro,
now completes Four Corners, at the intersection of Washington & Lincoln Streets.
Then we make our way to the big mural of Old Town Calistoga ! The same poses are great because one can really see how the girls have grown in the years that I’ve been knitting for them (and blogging about it).
At the end of this post is a big long slideshow, I hope you watch it !
However, as this post is also a pattern debut, I must say, some lovely detail photos were taken.
Just look how lovely the neckline , with the scalloped neckline & mitered corners looks in these details . . .
And just how the bottom icord edge with scalloped lace pattern works . . .
Last not least , the back shoulder, and short rows.
The neck is just low enough in both the front and back. . .
Friends & Knitters, you can find the pattern over on it’s own page Penny Candy Tee Pattern page , here on Yarnings. or on Ravelry HERE Plenty to peruse, but, before you click off this page, the best is waiting next in this little slideshow !!!
Thank you girls, you’re the one’s who made me into the knitter I am, and if it weren’t for you, there’d be no Yarnings. Here on this bench outside of Calistoga Roastery, we closed for the day, and I want you to see the first photo taken of them, on this same bench wearing the first cardigans I knit for them!
