Amelia

I should be sitting on the couch right now, knitting Maxime a pair of mittens and watching last week's Heroes. But I got all my Amelia pictures from my stepfather, and I just couldn't wait to show you.
I've been having quite a bit of fun with the Mosaic Maker, it gives just the right amount of Artsy Fartsy-ness to this project, which is officially my favourite finished object EVER!

What can I say about this project? You know, other than that I LOVE it. Love the pattern, love the yarn (OMG, if you've never worked with Madelinetosh Tosh Worsted, you really don't know what you're missing. It's just scrumptious).

I knit the pattern as written, except I made the body a little longer (because my body is, well, a little longer than average). It's flattering, girly, the perfect thing to throw on on a crisp Fall day and still look feminine and put together. I highly recommend it (in case there was any doubt).

I'll leave you with the money shot.

Happy Knitting Everyone!

I love the little spinning wheel. Knitting bling ;) Where does it hang on Amelia? Or is it jewelery?

You did a fab job on that sweater. The color suits you well. Wear it well!

And your stepfather did a great job with the photography. He a professional or it's just his hobby?

Can't wait to see Maxime's mittens!
