More excess –  this time in the form of knit-in tucks.

Don’t you love that Eleanor can knit too?  We chose a different photo for the book – one  that focuses more on the vest, but I am still enamored of this shot. Adina Klein helped us out with the styling for this story  – that’s the Pure MerinoCapecho” she was knitting for her step mom, lent to Eleanor for the moment.

I can tell you more about the cool new yarn it’s knit in when I can link it all to the Berroco site.

  1. Though I can’t quite figure out the vest — yet! — I love this photograph. Very soft and evocative, beautiful colors and textures.
    And yes, you can always tell when a model can actually knit rather than just having had the needles thrust clumsily into her hands.
    Can’t wait for the whole book!

  2. I love vests and this one looks wonderful! My question is with the added textural interest do you think it would work for a ‘boobier’ frame????

    1. Tina – for a ‘boobier’ frame (as you put it), I suggest a hook and eye to keep the fronts together. I picture it with a voluminous peasant blouse/dress underneath.

  3. Hah, Never mind, I found it in that new book.. I was eyeing it earlier this morning for the pretty sweater. I guess I must get this book.
