About Photoshop, that is. Combine that with a camera that's probably smarter than I am and you've got a recipe for potential fugliness. Let me present Exhibit A:
Instead of focusing on the pink ball of yarn which appears blown out (overexposed) feast your eyes on the fair aisle instead. It's slow-going for me--I'm working it two handed and I'm not going to break any knitting speed records. I'm having a hell of a time keeping any kind of tension on the yarn in my right hand, but in this case it's working out. (I'm a continental knitter all the way.) The tension is exactly right. There's no puckering of the fabric because of too-tight tension, which is the usual problem for fair aisle newbies. In this case, being inept is working out just fine, thank you very much. Here's a sexy close up:
Anybody guess what the pattern is? Hopefully, I can post a photo tomorrow that will give you more of a hint. And this weekend, I will post the details of the giveaway. I've selected the prizes and just need to work out the specifics. I'm getting excited about it--it's stuff I would want to win. I hope you will too!
Good luck with this project. I haven't attempted any stranded color work yet but I definitely want to!ReplyDelete
So pretty. I can't tell yet what it will be, but I am looking forward to seeing it. Your photos look great to me! I am learning enough photoshop to become dangerous too. I know what you mean!ReplyDelete
Cool that your tension is going great. That's such the big worry with me too.
Nope, not sure what it will be. Nice tension though! Usually I have to block mine out.ReplyDelete
What will it be? I pink bow, maybe?ReplyDelete
I always switch back and forth between the colors, keeping the yarn in my right hand. I don't think I could work it with my left and right. Sounds like a challenge.
Stranded work - I love it. Are you doing something for breast cancer?ReplyDelete
I love Photoshop. I wish it knew it well, but I know some. I also wish I was good at photography. So many interests, so little time.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous yarn selection.Impressed by your technique too.ReplyDelete
I did a stranded colorwork Christmas stocking last year. It was my first colorwork and the first couple weeks were sad. Very sad. But it came out beautifully. Then someone said, "Why don't you make matching ones for the whole family?" I'm not quite ready for that.ReplyDelete
PS - can't wait to see what you're making!
