Chunky Cardi Progress

The cardi is almost done…


I’m working on the sleeves, and then will need to seam it all together.  (The middle part above is the back; the left and right “flaps” will be the front of the cardigan,  joined by a continuation of the green ribbing all around the front and neck. The round areas are where I will seam the sleeves onto it. I am loving chunky yarn, although the one I chose is a bit more dense than I’d prefer… but I think it will be a nice, dense cardigan. :)

Now to get link happy:

On  a whim, I looked up a blogger who hugely inspired me when I really got into knitting–Parikha Mehta–who had a beautiful asthetic to her knitting blog.  Unsurprisingly, she now is a photographer and has another beautiful blog. She is spearheading a photo movement called “Wherever I Am With You”… yup, from the song “Home”, by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.  What commercial has this song not been in?  It was on repeat in our house (and car) last summer…

Anyway, Parikha’s created a collaboration between photographers to take a monthly photo of themselves with their kids to show them someday that “they were there too.” How cute is this?  I am loving this idea. And after scrolling through the many photos posted, I am homornal, and my teary eyes prove it… :)

I am guilty of not being in photos, too–I’m not much of a “selfie” fan, but I’d love to have more photos taken both of R & I with the girls, just doing what we love to do. Real-life lifestyle shots, not posed.  We’re not good at doing this–which is funny, because all I remember growing up was my dad with a camera or video camera in hand. It annoyed me at the time (sorry dad!) but now am I grateful to look back on those memories.  Look at these photos, and you will want to just scoop your kiddos up and click click click.

PS. Does anyone else think the gal who sings “Home” sounds like Scout Finch as an adult…? I think this every single time I hear it.

  1. this photo thing is so true – and in reverse! whenever i’m out and about with my parents, i look for interesting backgrounds/walls and tell them to stand in front of it so i can take their picture! roles reversed (bwa haha)…but seriously i want photos of my parents. you’re little ladies will feel the same, i have no doubt.
    ps re your last post, klassen = the best!
