shiny, pretty candy

This Spring, Stitchy McYarnpants and I asked a few of our pals to help contribute to a big secret project we have on the go. The response has been tremendous. When we asked Amy of Stash, Knit, Repeat to play, she blushed at first and shyly asked, “me? really?” But after knocking out her first secret project for us, it was like a big switch had been flipped. First the gorgeous February Fitted Pullover and now, Arm Candy.

Arm Candy

I’m pretty sure Amy didn’t ask me to take the photos for this pattern, I may have just thrown myself in her path. But I’m happy I did, because hello! another gorgeous photoshoot.

I love that Amy’s designs are all things that you could wear to work.


She put a lot of thought into the whole sweater


like the princess seams for figure flattering shaping


and beautiful details like this seed stitch cuff and button.

That red hair ain’t bad either.

    I meet her at rhinebeck and she was very much so “me? really?” about me being excited to meet her (literally had seen the pullover pattern the day before). I saw it in person, it was lovely!

    So I am dying to know what this secret project with Stitchy is! Your photographs of Arm Candy & Pickadilly are just awesome (as are the patterns)
