So I finished Jubilee's spring jacket yesterday and took some hasty shots of him wearing it as he snoozed in my lap post-nursing. I didn't think that those would be the best shots I'd be able to take! Pre-mobility, I would look forward to morning light to get my baby gussied up in my latest baby knit and set him up for a photo shoot. I would take a couple of shots, select the best one and post about it. Ah, those were the days!
But now that he can move around...this little routine of ours is quickly becoming i-m-p-o-s-s-i-b-l-e! He won't stop moving! I must have taken 50 shots today trying to get one where he is sitting still, not eating the sweater, and not crawling out of the shot and I tell you it was slim pickings.
This is the first photo I took and that was it. I think I'll have to come up with a new strategy! It will probably involve more spontaneous 'action shots' or a lot more 'sleeping beauty' shots. As I mentioned earlier this week, the pattern is from the Fall/Winter 2002/2004 Phildar Layette magazine knit up in the 12 month size with 8 balls of Phildar Altitude yarn. It was real quick to knit (the gauge is 2 st per inch!) and the resulting fabric is very thick so that it can be worn as a jacket. I love it!
But now I really have to get to my sisters Christmas/birthday sock since her birthday is today! Bonne fete Helene, je t'aime gros gros ;0)
Have a great weekend everybody!
