That sombrero is killing me...

The sweater look great Gray! The color suits you well. BTW, the answer you question, I'm using Cascade Pima Tencel for my green spring vest. I have six balls of the stuff, which is about 109, but it took me 2 whole balls and a bit of a third to finish the front. I'm not worried about running out, but I thought you may want to know that.

So Super Cute!
And the hat just makes it. You will have to wear the hat next time you come over. It is so festive and fun. The color of the sweater is gorgeous on you. I can't believe you made it that fast. You rock!

The sweater came out great. I love the photos! Did you use a timer and tripod or did you have someone take them?

gray la gran said...

thank you for the compliments ... i am going to wear it today, the sweater, not the sombrero !
i did not use a timer with tripod, but instead had my mom take the pictures.
kelly, thanks for the info on your green vest :)

Wow, what a fab photo shoot! Rowan's got nothing on you. (You must have a really good camera!)

There are some really nice details on that sweater. The raglan lines are very pretty.

Aww...a finished sweater in albany that looks GREAT! Can't wait to see it in person. Wonder how it would look in a 'deep coral red'. Hmmm...

Love the sweater! Makes me want to do one, but I'm on a roll with kid sweaters. I think it might have something to do with my limited attention span-
