Complacencies of the peignoir and moving slow on this Sunday morning. The shoulder seams on this Laurel sweater have a mighty burthen to carry, so I’m going with old-school backstitch seams for sturdiness.
Deepest apologies to Berroco Ultra Alpaca yarn for showing it in such awful light. It’s so great in real life, I swear.
I just read an interview with Ben Whishaw, the British actor who played Keats in Bright Star and also Q in Skyfall. He mentioned that he has become obsessed with photography, and has been looking at the work of Vivian Maier in particular.
Who? Off I go. Vivan Maier’s story is so great: a nanny in the 1950s who hid away her passion for street photography. In 2007, her 100,000 negatives were discovered, and her genius was revealed.
Her self-portraits are my favorite.
