From this sketch of an idea before starting to knit…

To the final version in reality!

Husband took these photos on a blustery day at the top of our neighborhood, in front of Mr. Whicker’s farm.

Being silly ’cause I love my new sweater very much!

Here are some up close photos in not so good lighting. ๐Ÿ™

As the sweater evolved, I felt it needed a band at the bottom to lengthen it. Seed Stitch at the bottom kept the edge from rolling AND seemed the perfect stitch for a flower sweater.

I LOVED doing the embroidered lettering!

The stems and leaves made ME laugh!

I had to keep trying on the sweater to see how it draped and thus how the stems should flow. ๐Ÿ™‚

And of course, I had to take Brown Sweater’s photo on Genevieve, the name of my dress form. I’ve had my dress form a bit longer than illustrated Genevieve has been with me. I must like that name, a little bit.

**Do you see how I “wrote” Emerson as the stem of the last flower?

That little flower is also the period at the end of the quote,

“The ย earth laughs in flowers.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

This will be the perfect thing to wear to the Art Show at my school this Thursday.

It’s going to be a grand evening!

    I never cease to be amazed by you – and a little jealous of your creative gifts! I am so glad that you use your gifts, though – we are all certainly blessed by them!
