I've been quiet for quite a few days, huh? Everybody needs a little break every now and then, I guess. Even though I've been lounging around and working on secret project(s), I've still had my hands full with school and work and catching up on everyone else's blogs.
I came across Andi's "Month of Craft" photo group on Flickr and have been enjoying taking my own daily photos! It's so fun to step outside of super-staged FO shots for a while, to just revel in being crafty without letting my inner perfectionist worry about all the details of those very "important" FO photoshoots. For the most part, I'm only snapping 2 or 3 photos a day for this project, and then lazily editing them online with Pixlr.
Day 1: "You in Action". I was sewing together tiny felted hearts for a project I'm going to reveal very shortly.
Day 2: "Tools". This is just a small selection of my straight needles. I love them! Actually, almost of the needles in the picture are either gifts or loans from friends. So, this picture is oddly sentimental.
Day 3: "An Old FO". This is the very first sweater I knitted in June of 2007. I used the Elizabeth Zimmermann percent system and some dreamy Malabrigo I scored from a destash event :-) I forgot how well it fits! I really should make an effort to wear this more often.
I can't wait to take more pictures! I'm really excited to be a part of this!
