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:
and because you are weird you take a picture of her limp tail:
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! 😀
