|If we look wilted, it's because this was taken at the end of our day of shooting in steamy 95 degree weather.|
I was beyond thrilled to be working with Norah and the Berroco crew.
Our model Alice getting her hair & makeup done. I can't show you any of the fab sweaters & accessories she posed in, yet, but Alice was amazing. She wore wool outdoors in the heat and never complained. Or sweated. Just smiled and looked beautiful.
Same with my wonderful assistant Ariana. Smiles & beauty. Some of you met her at Rhinebeck last year.

The hair & makeup area. I always want to paw through the products to see what's what. Not that I'm so into the beauty products but in this setting, they seem more like art supplies. And who can resist art supplies?
My other assistant, Michelle, at work behind the makeup array, churning through the pixels as we finished each piece. Not an easy job, trying to edit while everyone's bustling around, and then I periodically call her to help hold a second reflector. Check out her concentration.
Before we jumped in our cars I made everyone pose for a group photo. I'm glad they're smiling, but not surprised, it was that kind of a crew. Michelle was still glued to the laptop inside, going through the last take. Can't wait to share the "real" photos and knits....
I hate to have to be so secretive--it's not being coy, it's business. However-I'm writing this form Nashville, where I just finished teaching at SSK and I will show you EVERYTHING from that, as soon as I get a chance to download and put it together. It was, in a word--2 words- super fun.
