Since I started blogging I’ve become very interested in photography…the composition of a shot, the lighting, the background, etc. But there are only so many hours in a day. In a perfect world or if I won the lottery I would be a perpetual student, taking classes in everything and anything my brain could handle. I would study how to set up the perfect picture, how to bring out beauty. But since my time is limited I’ve decided to focus on how to bring out the beauty in my favorite medium, yarn. And I’ve learn to get over things like what you see below. The first picture was taken at a friend’s place and the remaining 3 in my bedroom at home. Hence the big difference in color. Of these four pictures the first and the last are the truest representations of this gorgeous color way, how does that happen. (I know Kim, I’m getting to the details).
(sorry this picture is not to clear, but again there is my point)
Pattern: Fingerless Gloves/Stulpen by Petra
Yarn: Mt. Colors “Rosehips” (I use alot of Mt. Colors around here), Less then half a skein (full skein is 350 yards)
Needles: Addi #2
Gauge: 7 stitches = 1″
I didn’t change anything on this one…just blindly followed along. Sometimes I have to do that to clear my head…and I’m very happy with the results. Both the gloves and in my head. As the cable grew out of the ribbing I was totally entertained. Clearly it doesn’t take much…
