Finally, some photos!
Here is Son's Presence Illusion Scarf ...
Blocking (photo is from a low angle so you can see the 'illusion' image - it's quite long, nearly 6') :
And worn - he loves it (isn't he a cool rock boy?) :
And my Jejune Rustic Jumper blocking :
A close up of the shoulder :
I love the ends of the sleeves - I reknit these several times, and ended up with a long 1x1 ribbed cuff, on slightly smaller needles, and a Kitchener Stitch Bind Off, which gives a rolled ribbed edge! Nice and stretchy too (which is what I was aiming for) :
The hem has just a few rows of seed stitch. I'm not completely happy with it, the bind off isn't stretchy enough, so I think I'll unravel the hem and knit it a bit longer, and do a better bind off.
The neck is also a bit more 'boat neck' than I was wanting, but it's probably OK. This is a detail of the neck ribbing with a purl ridge before the main body of the jumper...
It's weird, when it's your own design, you keep tweaking, and unravelling, and reknitting, and unravelling, and .... does it ever end?!
Photos of the jumper being worn when I'm feeling more photogenic. Haggard isn't chic ... yet ;)
