Have I mentioned how excited I am about living in Virginia Beach again? I can hardly wait to get back down to the ocean with my full sized dress form. I’m sure people think I’m strange hauling all this stuff down to the ocean and taking pictures of it. Heck, I think it’s a little strange. But it sure does make for beautiful and unique blog updates!
I love this one so much, I want one for me! That sequined strand held while knitting the chunky yarn works so well. I gave this one as a gift to a friend who moved to Beaufort NC. I wanted her to have something to keep her warm, but look seaside appropriate.
Isn’t that a beautiful cowl captured at sunset on the beach? I adore taking pictures at sunset on the ocean. It is just gorgeous. You really only have about 10 minutes, maybe 10 minutes, when you get this perfect, perfect light we call magic light. But it’s the best 10 minutes of the whole shoot.
Spring is here and time to get to work in the yard. I can’t imagine dressing like this to do yard work. I just about can’t imagine getting that fixed up to go to dinner at this point in my life. The way things change over time is often to changes you would never expect.
So, I think we’ve all had enough winter images for one season!!! Time to move on to warm and light and spring or even summer imagery. Here are two neckwarmers I knitted. The purple one I’ve been getting quite a lot of wear out of, and compliments I might add. Every time I wear it out, I get complimented on it. So that’s nice! The blue one I gave away as a gift. I have a second piece knitted. I need to sew the buttons on for the photography session with the models that’s coming up. I bought a bunch of cool button on sale at Christmas. These are all called SteamPunk style, so I bought a ton of them. It does make it a little difficult to replicate pieces for sale, because you never know what buttons are in the store and once you use them on a piece, that’s kind of it. I think I’m going to have to sell them as one of a kind pieces because of the button issue. I can’t tell you how much I love that sea turtle bauble! I also added sequin yarn to the chunky yarn, so it’s two strands held together on that piece. It’s super pretty.
It’s getting warm enough to take walks on the beach again. I look forward that time all winter. I’ve lived near the sea my whole life, so it was quite difficult being no where near water for all those years. Plus, walking on sand is tremendous exercise. I’m so glad to be back.
Here’s my first garter stitch dog cowl that I made up as a test knit. I have gotten so many compliments on it, and truthfully, it’s not very well done. It is super cute. So I’m going to knit up a bunch of these for the shop. I guess you’re never going to go wrong with a triadic color scheme. Makes me wish I still had my color wheel from College Design class.
Here’s another spring like knit for you!
