I finally got a chance to take some 'blog pictures', as I call them, while in DC last week for a conference.....I swindled my poor co-worker into playing photographer while we walked from the Washington Memorial to the Lincoln Memorial since I forgot my trusty tripod and remote shutter at home (and no I don't mean the #fluffyblondemonster although he does quite often act as my photographer....again, I can hear him re-thinking this whole marriage thing...). Luckily for me, since we were at a super touristy spot, I didn't feel totally awkward taking photos like I usually do :)
Like I mentioned above, this cardigan works great as a jacket for a crisp fall day, especially if you'll be doing a TON of walking (it's hard to judge perspective for distance between all these monuments...and I had run out of US data for my phone so I couldn't consult google). You may notice that my version of Marylebone is lacking a few key features, namely the pockets and the buttons. I actually have both buttons and pockets but they never made it onto the final cardigan. The buttons because I bought grey buttons from Dressew that matched the Moonstone colour way much too closely, I went back to Dressew to get new ones and accidentally bought more of the exact same type....so I now have 10 of these buttons (one of which doesn't even have the holes to sew it on drilled in....). The pockets were left off because I coudln't decided if I wanted/needed them on this cardigan or not....since it's been knocking about for 9 months without the pockets I think it's safe to say that they will stay as swatches in my sweater drawer for the imminent future.
