Now, for some FOs!

I finished some projects! Yay! I completed the Merlot Scrunchable Scarf from last week's post, the one for my sister's bf. He visited us briefly this past weekend and he's darling. He even enjoyed playing with my son!! He tried on the scarf and loved it, but I didn't give it to him as I hadn't blocked it yet. It's now blocked and photographed, but I took the photos late in the day so they are pretty bad quality. The model I had lined up for this photo shoot (my sister), decided that she needed to take a nap in the middle of the day, and when she woke up she didn't feel like getting all dolled up for a photo shoot. So I lost the daylight needed for good pictures, and had to pull out my trusty plastic bodyform. One of these days I'll get a beautiful fancy-looking bodyform...

For the photos, I tried for some artistic, close-up shots to make up for the bad lighting and my rudimentary photo-taking skills. Here are a few pictures of the Merlot Scarf. I think adding the cable on one side of the scarf was a good call. I love the effect it gives to the scarf.





I finished the Black Moody Kerchief for Veronica's mom a while ago, but hadn't put up pictures because I wanted to shoot both shawls together. Sadly, I still haven't finished the Tan Moody Kerchief (but I'm working hard on it), so I gave up on that idea. Here's the Black Moody Kerchief, knit in KnitPicks Gloss DK.




PS: Shooting something knit in black yarn is hard! Heck, knitting something in black yarn is hard!! Does anyone have suggestions/tips on taking better photos of black items? I would definitely appreciate some pointers. 

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

  2. Thank you Neicee! It is definitely hard knitting in black! I started a scarf for my dad a year ago and still haven't finished it because it's in black!
