The brief photo shoot on the way out the door just didn’t do Purple Penny justice. My cameraman humored me and took some more when we got home from work.* Today I got complimented on this sweater and the colors that I selected, even when they didn’t know I made it. That was really cool. It was fun to say “thanks, I made it”. One woman told me I had a “hidden talent”. I guess I never really thought about my knitting as a talent, it’s just something that I do. But I consider it talent in others. Hmmm…
I thought the Purple Penny was the perfect opportunity to do “the Rachael“. I hadn’t busted that move before, but I thought it was appropriate today.
Speaking of busting moves, this is the ever-famous dancing shot. I had troubles coming up with dances today so I went with the default groove. The look on my face is the “what dance should I do” look. These photos haven’t been retouched, I guess the sun just changed positions while we were outside making them look different.
I guess you might want to know the specs. The pattern is Bad Penny created by Stef. I made this using some of the yarn that Chris sent me during Secret Pal round 1 (thanks!). It is Gedifra Wellness. I still have a ball and a half left! It was fun to work with and I enjoyed wearing it today. The trim is Microspun that I had left over from a baby set I made a while ago. So, this one was a stash buster. I didn’t purchase any new yarn for Purple Penny! Yay!
*I decided today at work that it is long enough so it will remain as is…I’ll probably make the next one a bit longer, just to add variety.
