Here are the outtakes from my most recent finished knit, the Pacific Sweater! This came as a kit from We Are Knitters (you can read the whole finished knit post here, and the knit in progress post here). The sweater is super comfy, but the day we were trying to take photos, our toddler was not interested in sitting in her stroller. Which normally wouldn’t be a problem, but cool street art tends to be…. on the street. Where toddlers shouldn’t be running amok.
Oh yeah, I’m acting so cool in front of street art on a major street in Toronto! I apparently have no shame. When not pulling silly stunts, there are quite a few photos of me trying to keep an eye on Lila, who was not interested in the task at hand:
She kept pulling down the top of her stroller so she could get a head start on being a sullen teenager, and when that didn’t work, she tried to wiggle out of her stroller. I think in the shot above I was telling her to stay in her chair. So we tried bribing her with a croissant:
One of the few photos where you can tell that my headband, shoes, and tank top underneath are all echoing the black stripe theme. But you see how the top is staying on my shoulders perfectly when I’m crouched down? That i-cord is working it’s magic!
I will also sit nicely if someone gives me a croissant, so I’m glad that baked-goods bribery works for toddlers, too. Because I had the ever-so-important task of looking like this in photos:
“hello? Is it me you’re looking for?”
Um, yeah. This would be a good time to remind you that there are lots of decent shots over on the finished knit post. Or you can check out the kits here, because that model is definitely working her Blue Steel magic. Or I can offer you a photo of Lila 3 seconds before she successfully wiggled out the bottom of her stroller:
She also unsnapped the padding from the bar and started whipping it around. Clearly the croissant counted for nothing!
* This is the final (part 3) of a short series of sponsored posts for We Are Knitters, a super stylish knitting kit company that are good sports to be affiliated with these silly photos and my unruly toddler. I chose the pattern kit and the colour, and all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.
