Mellow Yellow

Mellow Yellow

Yellow, as you can imagine, isn't a traditional colour for Aran sweaters but
it was one of my favourite colours when I was a teenager back in the late '70s.
My mother was an expert knitter and she knitted this cardigan at my request.
It was one of the last things which she knitted and although I no longer wear
it, I keep it stored away carefully.

Nikon D90
1/60s f/5.0 at 50.0mm iso640 full exif

It was masterful work that she did. A beautiful sweater and a beautiful shot of it.

What a pattern, and I bet like all mums she knitted at the speed of light.

What a beautiful sweater (yellow is my favourite colour). And a touching story with it. Together in a lovely picture, soft lit and somewhat old-fashioned. Beautiful. Uschi (V)

Used that same pattern myself. In the 70's the unisex was all the rage...families of us strolled alike :)
You have kept it beautifully.

It's sometimes said that it's not enough to simply look for shots, you need to go out and MAKE them. This is a good example of that. Good arrangement, lighting, and of course story.

How touching! I'm glad you've kept it all these years! V

A beautiful sweater that is a guardian of many memories. You have captured the colour so well, and it is a fine memorial of your mother's artful skills. -v-

It is indeed a beautifully knot sweater in a wonderful color. You have shot it so well with clarity and soft light and the way it contrasts with the wood of the background is great, love it. BV
