I managed to throw some dirt and twigs on my head. That is all.

But think of the laugh you provided to any possible onlookers! Lovely hat and mittens, BTW.
Ah but just look at the delicious mittens!
That is so not a fail! You look adorable!
That’s not a fail, that’s a moment of fun. You and your knitting look marvellous.
You made me smile

Lovely and silly ;
Really looking forward to knitting these xx
Another fabulous project completed…how do you do it!!
Hat and mittens charming, as always; but that jacket is wonderful! Did you make it?
Adorable and I want your coat!
But did you have fun? If so not a fail.
But such stylish, beautifully begloved, dirt and twig throwing !
You already know I love the hat and mittens so all I can say about this is. You look so damn cute in them and what nice coat. Good to see you exquisite taste prevails even if it doesn’t involve shoes.
Oh mittens, you are so challenging to photograph. Great outtakes, though!
Apologies for being to quick to post…poor spelling. Ooops!
Fail… what fail? I love those pictures and your new mittens and hat.
Will love to knit those!
Kate = ever so lovely
Looks like fun to me!
I think all knitting projects should be illustrated by action shots. Dirt and twigs small price to pay!
I wish I was there. I’d rake up a big pile of leaves and then THROW them way into the air to help you get the shot you desire. Loving all the fall colors. We are just inching towards gold and amber here in Georgia, USA.
The mittens are .a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e.
Lovely, lovely photos! No fail here at all! And lovely mittens, too!
I like this photoshoot better. But I have no intention of making mittens (i FAIL at knitting) so i just like pretty fall pictures. I’m sure your photoshoot was intended for more utilitarian purposes.
What fail? I didn’t see a fail. All I saw were lovely mittens with a matching hat and a young woman having fun. Go for it!
I love your blog! I came upon it when it was featured and am now a subscriber. I’m not a knitter but I love fabrics–more than anything I like your honesty and your earnestness! Also–great photography.
As always, they look amazing! Can’t wait to try knitting them. How did you manage to bundle up in hat, coat and mittens in this heat?! Thanks, though – as everyone says above, you look great.
Hee! Modelling mittens is tricky. You can’t even do my personal favourite which works with fingerless mittens and gloves (hands wrapped round cup of hot chocolate/coffee).
Nice pics, love the way the hat and mittens look gorgeous with the lovely coat.
Good to see that the little girl Kate, is still in there :-)
Lovely mittens, but – WHAT is that coat? Please tell!!!
these are fantastic mittens! so colourful and warm looking!
