Not wet, homework and WIP Wednesday

1) Half an hour before I’m due to pick the kids up from school, the skies open and the rain is bouncing off the road. By the time I need to leave, it’s dried up and the sky is blue once again.

2) She puts so much effort into her first set of “proper” homework, and does a lovely job. I wonder if she’ll still be doing such beautiful work by the end of term!

3) I’ve been working several projects this week – I’ve been experimenting with knitting a wee bag for M (still to be seamed), and another is the gift project I mentioned last week. It doesn’t look much progressed from last week, but after taking that pic, I knitted a fair bit more before a mistake in the pattern created chaos and I had to frog it completely. I’ve now re-knitted to the point I was at and beyond. It’s fun to knit, and I’m loving the increases and how the pattern is forming!

PS Any tips for photographing knitting gratefully received!

  1. So glad the weather cooperated with your school schedule—I got soaked running errands this morning, so I’m glad you avoided my rainy fate.

    And that bag is adorable, oh my gosh. I want to cuddle it.

  2. Such pretty colors! The bag is very sweet with all that texture.

    There is a group on Ravelry.com for tips on photographing knitwear — it’s called “Project Photography.” The main thing I’ve learned is that everything looks better in natural light. I also bought a sheet of foam board at the craft store to use as a background.

  4. Aw, I love the bag!!

    Wish I had suggestions for photography but I’m a nature photographer and it seems my knack for those kinds of photos just doesn’t extend to my crafting. 🙁

  5. Thanks very much 🙂 .

    I’ve had a look at the Ravelry group – some good suggestions that I’ll try to use when I photograph my next project – thank you!
