This was an interesting design challenge because I had to figure out how to make a jacket with lapels. I also came up with a blue lobster pattern for this project. My first lobster was orange but as you'll see from my collection, I like to use a very limited color palette for each doll. Throwing in another color for the lobsters just didn't work. Luckily, there really are BLUE lobsters so I was able to choose a yarn for the lobsters that matched the color of the yarn I used for the fisherman's sweater. Problem solved!
Yesterday Mike and I walked down to the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, hopped the fence at low tide, and took these waterfront photos. Here's Mike getting geared up for the photo shoot.
The East River is not exactly the ocean but it's the closest thing we've got! It was a beautiful day, we had a good time, and nobody seemed to mind at all that we jumped the fence.
