Isn't she lovely?

I really don't have much to say tonight... I'm just so totally smitten with the results of today's photo shoot of Honeybee, I'm having a hard time writing something other than OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS CARDIGAN SO MUCH!!!!! So I think I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves...

Just a perfect spring sweater.... casual, dressy, Honeybee is whatever you want it to be. Knit with Malabrigo sock, the smallest size took me just a smidge more than 2 skeins. Buh-Haaaaar-Gain!!!!

Now, don't get me wrong... this pattern was a bit of a pain in the arse to knit... but SOOOOOO worth it. It fits beautifully, has no seaming to speak of (THANK you Laura!!!) and it just makes me feel like a zillion bucks when I wear it.

Happy Knitting Everyone!!!

Truly stunning! The colour of the yarn is amazing. Obviously you added some length to it (which I love), but did you also add waist shaping?

Bravissime! What a lovely sweater, model, and photoshoot location (good job Phil!). My fave is the full back shot showing those delightful honeybees. You do look like a million bucks in it - well done :)

Tu as raison: il n'y a pas un million de mots à écrire. Il est superbe. Pas simple en plus, tu es patiente!

The pattern does look a bit fiddley, but it came out beautifully. I really love the colors you picked for it; just perfect. Now turn around so I can see what that button you were waiting for looks like... :D

It's stunning. I wants one. I might even have stash yarn that would work...gots to buy pattern...bad enabler Tara!

I like how you used the shawl pin (?) 'cus you don't have the buttons on it. I wonder what closures would look better in the bigger sizes? Hmm...
