I blame it on the yarn fumes. How else could I have forgotten to post an after shot of my newly organized stash?
Now, not everything you're seeing is knitting stash. There is my cross stitch stuff, Mr. Batty's miniature box, a dead laptop...
But it doesn't matter. There's all this new room, and all the yarn is safely tucked away. I'm a happy knitter.
To quote Monty Python's Flying Circus: "And now, for something completely different..."
An upside down shot of my progress on Tangerine Twist, or rather, Dusky Pink Twist, and some observations on knitting and photography.
Have you noticed how difficult it can be to photograph cables? Here, I'm using flash, and the color is very true to the original. But what of the Little Waves pattern? It's nearly invisible.
Same lighting, same everything, no flash. The cables stand out in beautiful relief, perfectly visible, lovely. Only the color is... less than pretty. Washed out orangey pink that looks like I stuffed my WIP in the washer with the husband's brown polo shirt and it bled. I guess you can't get both cables and perfect color with cheap artificial light!
I have started the heel on my Jaywalkers. After the many assurances that I am indeed not the last knitter on this green earth who is knitting these socks, I feel somewhat better. Not that I'm a trendsetter, or even trendy enough to follow the latest trend. But this is a very popular pattern, and I seriously hope I won't run into the many sizing problems people have had with this.
Next up: MS3 and the beads (sounds like a bad 80's band), more Jaywalker, and some mindless knitting.
