Take #2

We went out and shot a few more senior pics yesterday afternoon. The sun was really a bit too high in the sky. I would've liked it to be more cloudy as well...better for outdoor portraits. Ah well, whadaya' gonna do? Here are few that I played around with:

Biting the Bullet

Here's hoping this works!

I must say I about killed my back doing this! If only there were someone out there who was a professional blocker and we could knit things and then this good-hearted, kind soul would block it for you. I'd even be willing to send yarn for the person to keep! (or pay a fee!)

Still, I've got more laceweight in the stash, so I'd better learn to suck it up, eh?

Since this is my first attempt, I'm still a bit leary/dubious about what happens when the pins and wires are pulled. Here's hoping it doesn't go back to looking like something my cat coughed up on the carpet!

The Joy of Photoshop

Playing around in Photoshop this afternoon.

Fun, painted frame and . . .

A non-traditional look which I kinda like!

In knitting news, I will be entering two items in the Iowa State Fair's "Iowa Family Living"/Fabric & Needle Arts competition. I casted on the first item this afternoon and hope to do well!

Senior Pictures

Went out last night on our first attempt at shooting senior portraits. It was fun! This one was taken outside our high school's football the band entrance. Hard to believe we've reached this milestone already; time really goes by SOOOO quickly!

OMG! The Harlot & I Are Twins!

Or at least knit sibs for crying out loud!!

Go check out her blog for June 2 and you'll see why.

Here's a link, go look and I'll wait.

Did you spot it???

She knit the Adamas Shawl!! That's the same shawl I'm nearly done with (and the first lace project I've ever knit!!)

Apparently, I know how to pick my projects, no?! (And yes, I suspect there are quite a few mistakes in it, but I'm doing it as a learning experience and plan to keep it for myself, so it will be a trophy, mistakes and all!)

I hope she blogs about how to block the thing!
