New Creations

So I played with the new beads that I acquired the other day -

I really don't know how to photograph these to make it show better. How do people take such great pictures on things so shiny? I tried it with no flash, but it just doesn't look good. Any suggestion would be welcomed.

There is a President's Sale on so I ordered a bunch of beads to play more. I can't wait for them to get here!

And here is a very dark picture of a stitch pattern I've been practicing -

I really like this stitch pattern. It is the Diagonal Knot Stitch from my "365 Knitting Stitches A Year Perpetual Calendar" that I receive from Itchy 2 years ago for Christmas. This pattern gives quite a depth, and the back is pretty as well.

See! It's pretty :) I'm thinking of using this stitch pattern to make a scarf... Hmmm... Maybe it will be my Smidge along.

Well, I'm gonna go snuggle with my monkey blanket and drink some cocoa and watch some TV, and maybe even knit some... Oh, yeah, and let my nose and the tissues have a party... ::sigh::

Your stitch markers are pretty. No idea how to photograph them clearly. Maybe you can Google it.

That stitch pattern is really nice looking.

Hope your nose feels better! Thanks for your well wishes!

I LOVE the stitch markers. And isn't playing around with different stitches so much fun? And you take it easy and get to feeling better.

The stitch markers look great! Have you tried photographing them outdoors in natural light? I find that natural light works *so* much better for pretty much everything and you can often forgo the flash :) It's worth a shot anyway!

Love your new stitch pattern too. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Yeah, try outdoors. Or at least during the day. That way you won't need the flash.
And I LOVE that stitch pattern. Can I steal it? :)
