This is Not Your Grandmother's Knitting

Yesterday, I had a photo shoot for the fun people at Bijou Basin Ranch, including yarn, garments, and some haute couture pieces.  It was so much fun!  The models were great, the pieces were beautifully made, and it all came together.  This yak yarn is so nice to knit with, soft and warm.     

This is my sister-in-law.  Isn't she a great model? 

I left the shoot a few skeins of Tibetan Dream richer, and I know just what I'm going to do with it: when I get time for knitting for myself, I'm going to make some knee-highs. Perfect under some cute boots!

Isn't this a cute sweater?  I'm not saying this yarn is awesome because they're paying me - I don't get paid for my comments - but really, the yarn is just so nice to knit with!

Great photos as usual. Your SIL is a very good model. The yarn looks yum. I got some bison (blended) on my trip which I can't wait to use.

These are great! I love that gray sweater.

How fun, Karen! Your SIL is great - and the gray sweater is exactly something I would wear - but I think way out of my league for knitting!
