MrB to enrol on photography course!

Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year to all!

I asked MrB to take some pics of the most recent finish-offs in the Blethers household as he had the camera out. Bless him, but he obviously is no threat to the paparazzi! Here are the long-distance shots/evidence!

The hats are Hareton from the Simply Noro book and knitted in Kureyon. They are now keeping DD1's and her boyfriend's heads warm - though modelled here by SS2 and SS3 following some bribery and corruption by your truly! (What kids will do for a £1 ... and at least their charges have not yet been hit by adolescent inflation!). Hareton is a lovely straightforward pattern that knits up in a few hours. The only modification being that I used 4.5mm needles for DD1'S version as she wanted a neater fit for her petite bonce. The socks are modelled by DP - done in Lorna's Laces Tuscany and using the Garter rib pattern in Sensational Knitted Socks book (Charlene Church). As always, I loved knitting with Lorna's Laces though I felt the yarn had more pink in it than I had anticipated (I had thought it was more terracotta than the reality)... but gorgeous colourway regardless.

Glad you had a good xmas. I like the socks especially, but then I love LL too. My next pair is going to be in jeans colour!! Nice hats too. My DS refuses to pose for photos wearing his handknits and he's only 3 yrs old - no hope for him then ;)

Oh I love the Jeans colourway - nearly bought some for the sock stash but even I recognised how ridiculously big my stash was getting! Can't wait to see yours knitted up and will not be able to control my restraint once seen! As for my 'models', CJ ... they are all bribed, cajoled or threatened with all the creativity a step/mum can muster:-)
