After the range, we took a stroll through a local car show. Oh my how I loved each one of these classic babies.
I think this Studebaker was my favorite. Just look at the propeller on the front. That is seriously awesome!
Oh, don't mind me, I'm just checking my lipstick.
And pretending that I know what the hell I'm looking at under the hood.
But hey, let's talk about this sweater. Like I mentioned earlier, it's the Vodka Lemonade cardigan by Thea Colman. My mom had the idea of knitting this sweater together as our own little knit a long. We both started it in December while I was visiting her in Nevada. I finished it in February, but wasn't loving it all that much which is why it has taken so long to make it on the blog.
I also prefer that my sweaters have some sort of closure and this pattern doesn't have any. I improvised with this little poodle and heart pin. Super cute, but kind of a pain in my ass.
Although this may not be my favorite sweater that I've ever made, it was a nice pattern and it goes very well with many of the skirts in my wardrobe. Including this skirt I made last summer. If I were to make this sweater again, I would alter it to have buttons and also use a yarn with more stretch to it. The cotton yarn I used from Jimmy Bean's is awesome but I don't think it was the right choice for this pattern. I just loved the color so much and knew it would fit in to the mix well.
I'm glad I got to wear it once before we started hitting the high 70's and low 80's. I can't believe what a nice, hot summer we are having here in Alaska. Now, I'm going to go dip my toes in the water with Cupcake and a real Vodka and Lemonade (don't worry Mom, all my homework is done).
