We couldn’t have asked for a sunnier, more inviting day for the Koi photoshoot!
We found an enclosed English-garden area in the city gardens, trucked out lots of knitwear, hot chocolate, kids and marshmallows, and got into the holiday spirit.
The kids got into the marshmallows.
And I even went so far as to paint my nails for this. It surprises me every time I catch a glimpse of them, but feels kind of glamorous. Since glam isn’t the first word that leaps to mind when describing my life generally, I’m enjoying it.
I was hand-modeling the wristwarmer, don’cha know.
The Holiday issue gets bigger every day. Erika and I have each churned out a new pattern or three for the issue already; a deadline really gets the creativity ticking! Of course, I had all kinds of ideas about what else I would finish in time for today, including making myself a new skirt, finishing three hats ( I almost made it on that one! Two-and-two-thirds there….) and all kinds of other never-going to-get-done kind of stuff.
I want to make that skirt, though. Note to self–must have a Holiday party to wear it to this year.
Okay, tired, but happy about the shoot. oxox Jaala
