Lila is knitted in Swans Island Organic Merino/Alpaca in Seasmoke. Such a nice yarn, it was a wonderful to knit with! And, Li-li is made using Swans Island Ecowash, a washable wool in Verdigris. They are both simple, comfortable pullovers with a dropped hem detail...just a little something special.
I originally intended them to be released with the others a few weeks ago, but Lila wasn't finished in time for the Brooklyn photo shoot. If any of you read my blogspot blog, you saw that I was hoping to finish a sweater in 2 weeks—that was Lila. Well....I didn't finish. I turned into a mad perfectionist and ripped out the body (two times!! eep!). Oh, but it is done now and I am so enjoying it.
I decided to photograph it on two of my lovely friends: Miranda and Dana. You can see it at top on Miranda, with a smidge of negative ease. And, again on Dana, below Miranda, with a few inches of positive ease. I thought it would be interesting to show the same sweater in these two different ways...why not?!
And, Imogen, of course, at bottom is wearing Li-li. My little lamb. I have a few more photographs of her in Li-li I want to share with you later this week...
