Soooo… I should mention that I got an iPad mini for christmas. Normally I wouldn’t mention it but I’ve taken to spending a lot of time on it and taking quite a few photos with it. They aren’t as clear as my regular camera, but they sync to my computer auto-magically and I’m quite taken with my new toy.
This is my way of saying: Picture quality may go down around here… until the shiny and new factor wears off a bit.
But! You’ll get extra candid pictures of Katie!
So black cats are hard to photograph anyway, most of the time you get a black puddle of fur:
sometimes they’ve made a mess (kibble everywhere) that detracts from the photo:
Sometimes the background is less than ideal (black on black huh, what was I thinking):
And sometimes the angle isn’t the most flattering (fuzzy butt wants treats, and still with the messy kibble!):
But then you use your proper camera and catch her napping:
Hmmm…. this was supposed to be about knitting/crafting… let’s get into that!
1. Sparkle socks
Still on the first one, I really should pull it out more often than just lunch time at work.
2. Colour Affection
Added in the third colour and I’m 3 repeats into the short row section! Didn’t take a picture though…
3. NEW PROJECT! Amigurumi Dragon
Supposed to be 14in high, 34in long with a 54in wingspan… I really hope it is as epic as it sounds. So far so good.
4. NEW PROJECT! Doll outfit
The next fashion show in the Good Things Together group on Ravelry starts Feb 7. The theme is After Dark. I don’t want to share the whole outfit until the show, but here’s a teaser for the first part of it. I’ve got lots of plans for this show, whether I accomplish them is another thing.
simple little raglan at the moment.
Finished this week
1. Well to properly celebrate ‘After Dark’ my dolls needed a blanket!
A granny square rectangle, using sock weight yarn and measuring 12in x 8in, fits the bill nicely.
2. Finished KAL with AwesomeSister!
Doggy! EXTREMELY FLUFFY DOGGY!!!
Katie tried to lick him.
I am nearly out of the blue! Fiber Optic Merino/Silk blend. This is working up super smooth.
This is where I would normally post a Katie picture… look above for your fix!
