My brother snapped these shots just before we left Astoria last weekend. The morning mist had floated to the other side of the river, I just love foggy weather. This should be my backdrop for all my outfit photos, too bad it's not right outside my door!

Whoa! When I saw the pictures I was thinking "That cardigan is so cute!" and wondered where you got it! I can't believe you made it yourself! Good job!
I really wish I had the patience to make my own clothes:)

Beautiful pics and gorgeous cardy. I have knitted for a long long time but yet to try cables. Well done

I LOVE the color of that cardi; lucky you, you really have some knitting skills! Beautiful pictures (as always) and I also adore those shoes with their cute stitching.

Beautiful pictures! You're really good in knitting, wow! I don't have the patience, all I do is to crochet which is easyer and much faster...

i love the brooch, and the cardi = we are so lucky to have the V&A. If i wasn't trapped in by snow i would go today..

I said it last time but I'll say it again, I LOOOOOVE your cardi. So impressed with your knitting skillz.

Foggy backdrops are so romantic - it is really foggy here this morning but due to the snow (rare in London) I wouldn't want to stand around taking snaps. I'll be scuttling into work and the warm as quickly as possible.

The brooch is perfect! I am in love with anything sparrow recently, soon to be working on some sparrow embroidered berets.

Wow, great work on the cardi! I love cables. Did it take long to make?

Beautiful pictures! There's just something about bridges... And fog!

The cardigan turned out so pretty, makes me want to learn to knit better.
