Photography Challenge Day: 3KCBWDAY2

Photography Challenge Day!
Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn’t about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it’s about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative. Your photograph(s) should feature something related to your craft, so that might be either a knitted or crocheted item, yarn, or one of your craft tools. One example of setting a scene would be to photograph a girl in a knitted red cape walking through the woodlands with a basket of goodies, as in the Red Riding Hood tale, or you might photograph a knitted gnome hiding among the flowers in your garden. Photo editing is permitted for competition photos. Here are a few examples of my own photographs to illustrate an imaginative use of photography, but you can do much better than these…

Finally here I am finished and ready to go. Or I thought I was ready until she, the one with the cold hands who keeps poking me with needles, said she needed to get some onions, celery and garlic and I could wait right here. What does that say?   Gulp!

No, I’m not going to make soup but there were some trying times knitting this cute little guy. Meet Sheldon. The yarn is Berroco Comfort worsted in 9740 and 9752. The pattern is very well written and easy to follow. The yarn wasn’t the best choice for knitting on a size 3 needle. It is made up of a bunch of individual threads. Can you say splitty! The worst part for me was attaching the shell top to the body bottom with icord. There may have been lots of cursing and ripping and starting over. But now that he is done and N has spent some time with him he was totally worth the work.

    Adorable! And, most importantly, finished. I think I would have Sheldon as soup, instead of frying him. Then again, if it were up to me to kill the food I eat, I’d probably live on Twinkies, lol.
