The Big Reveal

Remember the Miette Knit Along I hosted with my friend Jo?  Well, we're both done with our sweaters now and we finally got some pictures of them!  I got Alicia to take my pictures when I was over at her house on Sunday, so one of my photos includes her adorable cat, Pluto.


Check it out!  How cute is Jo?  And can you believe that this is the first sweater she's ever knit?!  Here the zoom out:


Jo is going to be posting some pictures on her blog today as well - although I'm not exactly sure when "today" is in New Zealand!  I have a hard time wrapping my head around that International Date Line.

I know a few of you KALers are still working on your sweaters, but if you joined us and finished, and you'd like to have me add your picture to this page as well, just drop me a line with your photo and I'll add it in!

EDIT  7.12.12:  Linda L. sent me a picture of her finished Miette this morning - love those red buttons against the celadon sweater!  And she's got a brand new blog to go along with her new sweater!!

  5. Oh I love them! I'm glad I'm not the only one still working. I've been trapped at home so haven't been able to go out and buy buttons. I jus have button and neck bands left.

  10. You both have terrific new sweaters. I think I may have to make this - if I lengthen it, I think it will be more flattering on me.

    1. Thanks! And don't forget - the original had bust darts, which would make it even better for you. Jo and I had to remove them, LOL!

    2. Ha! I will not be removing those darts.

  11. You gals did a fantastic job on your sweaters.
    I love the cropped versions, if only I could pull it off.

    Hope to get to this one over the winter. Gail, your tutorials will be very close at hand when I tackle this.

    hugs
