We, my hubby photographer and I, grabbed the opportunity on this beautiful summer morning for a photo shoot of my newest project I affectionately call Nostalgia. Ever since seeing this pattern, Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2009 by Shiri Mor and choosing the yarn, Skinny Dyed, 100% organically grown cotton grey-like in nature, I imagined how I might fashion this and where the photo shoot might be taken. I believe a successful project is beginning with the end in mind. And it is, I am noticing, a journey of creativity that seems to be evolving (and has brought me right here)!
At first I imagined the medallion like a sun. No, not a sun… a sand dollar… beach… boardwalk… reminiscing… these thoughts eventually led me to its name and eventually to where I knew these photos needed to be taken. Along the Niagara River, we tried to capture the ambience of summer days gone by while maintaining some kind of fashion-forward thinking.
a beautiful shawl-like collar
Indian stitch edge that is so worth the time it takes to knit
detailed medallion back knitted from the center going out
Could opt for a closure, I chose to keep mine clean free.
shawl collar that can be worn up or down as weather denotes
I just love a white eyelet blouse especially when it picks up the look of the textured knit.
I will follow directions (no swimming).
Can’t you just feel the cool summer breezes?
