I know I promised a post on The Blasted Cardigan of Doom with modelled photographs and then didn’t actually post one. This was mostly as I had photos taken and came up against a problem. I got Mr NM to take the pictures, I believe the saying is “don’t quit your day job” photographer he is not.
They aren’t bad photos as such but they weren’t really what I was looking for and I’m not sure they really show off the cardigan all that well. Still I shall share as I’m unlikely to get a better photographer any time soon and I don’t have a tripod so setting up some sort of self-portrait scenario is not going to happen.
Some close ups
As the actual photo he took of me modelling it was poorly lit AND out of focus (bonus points) so the best I have to share is an action shot of me wearing it to the party celebrating his Grandma’s birthday and his grandparents’ 50th Wedding anniversary and looking like the world’s biggest dork…just for a change.
It is getting quite a bit of wear so I’m happy and I definitely feel I’ve caught the sweater bug as I’m knitting another cardigan and have a little queue of them lining up. If only there were more hours in the day to knit everything I want to…not to mention the yarn budget to match!
