Photography for Knitters Workshop action 10-4 this past Sunday at Knit New Haven
There was a whole lotta shooting going on.
We played around with different background colors & patterns for yarn & fiber.
This one's a beautifully subtle Noro striped scarf by Linda (Reiswear
is her Rav name.) It's a creamy natural Cascade Wool/Silk with a skein of the ever present Silk Garden. I want to knit a shawl with these two yarns now.
I am trying to revive the floating humans look, enough of all this white space everywhere. I know you're sitting there trying to figure out what patterns Rebecca is wearing above, aren't you? They are her own designs, you can bug her at her blog , Archiknist
, to write them up.
Bad weather kept us mostly inside. But not entirely.
I used to love looking at those I Spy books
with my sons, I think this is the knitters' version. How many handknits can you count? In fact I think I want to shoot a knitting pattern booklet that's all knitters in handknits shooting other knitters in handknits. Classic Elite
, are you listening?
At the end of the day we had a slideshow of everyones' work, you can see some here
(scrolldown). Some fabulous images. I can't believe how lucky I am to keep getting talented, enthusiastic and kind knitters in these workshops. Fun! Thanks to the Sunday crowd for playing along.
Special shout out thanks to Becca, our Nutmeg Knitter
, who was willing to chill for the cause.
