The Brother's Sweater: An Update (or The Things I Said)

Once my brother had received his Christmas sweater last year, I told him that I was definitely going to get pictures of it on him the next time I was home in California. Well, here I am. I flew in over the weekend and let me just point out that a trip from Akron to Sacramento will provide one with plenty of uninterrupted knitting time.

Anyway, I managed to convince my brother to do a brief photo shoot yesterday (convincing sounded something like this: "I didn't slave away for nothing. Put on the sweater now.").

So now, for your viewing pleasure, some pictures of the actual Brother's Sweater on the brother:

"Stand by the bushes. Look outdoorsy."

 "Puff out your arms more!"

 "I need a picture of the saddle shaping!"

"You're fine. You look great."

  3. That sweater is amazing! I wish I had a man that would wear a sweater. And yes, I know I have a man, but he certainly won't wear a sweater.
