Knitwear Fashion Photo Shoot

Modeling the Cloud Cowl.

Yesterday I had some fun with a long anticipated photo shoot with talented Vancouver photographer Sylvia McFadden, or Sylvia Bo Bilvia as she is known for her fabulous lacework shawls. Today I have been updating my pattern photos from my mannequin to pictures on a real live human (myself) on both Ravelry and Etsy. There will be a sequel photo shoot to update a couple more patterns sometime this fall once the samples are ready. I will also be updating the actual PDF patterns with Sylvia’s beautiful photos too. Now onto the photos!

AWOL

hat

You know that thing where you swear you know where something is, and then it isn’t where it’s supposed to be? That’s what I’m experiencing today with various objects around my place. Things are AWOL. No shore leave for you, knitting samples. I’m hoping some of them are in the box havoc that is my storage unit. Also missing? My hat. Not a knit hat, just a hat. Which should be hanging in its spot but it isn’t. Maybe I put it away in an even better spot. Hmm.

But what perturbs me is that all my knitting samples should be together. But obviously they aren’t. There’s a particular hat sample that I need for a rapidly approaching photoshoot that has long since been arranged, but it’s not with its kin in my wardrobe. Gone.

So in a fit of inspiration (read: madness) I’m going to attempt to speed knit a new sample of the English Rose Hat. WIth a pompom. I think it would look even better with a pompom. I may have a problem. Wish me luck! I better get knitting now.
