lots of pretty pictures

by ysoldateague March 18, 2006


I’m playing aorund with photopress and stuff at the moment, trying to get some pretty albums up. It’s not working out so well, but I did take some pics while doing this.
I still haven’t got my camera back, but it turns out that in daylight my phone takes half decent pics.

So I’d like to introduce you to:

Barnabus McGraw, who I knit from this kit, which I don’t exactly recommend. It’s cutely packaged but the supplies are pretty crappy quality, and unless you’re giving it to a child who can already knit they’re really going to struggle with the instruction booklet.

The eyepatch is my addition. (he has a scar underneath).


This is a little voodoo bunny I made months ago, but he was sitting on my desk when I was taking pictures so he had to be included in the shoot. Pattern is from Naive Knitting


This is some of the yarn I dyed


I made these socks a few weeks ago, but I’m wearing them today, so they got in front of the lens too.


And this is the sock I made from the first yarn I dyed, it’s companion is coming along while I ride busses, sit in lectures etc.


In case you were wondering Rosa is doing well, but slowly. I’m up to the eyelet row on the front – this


was the perfect excuse to avoid untangling the last few metres of yarn.
