here are the wool and needles (waiting patiently) for me to begin. the pattern is ysoldas, found in 'my grandmother's knitting' by larissa brown, link here. i used the same wool the book called for, jamieson & smith. after having a look at all the colorways, i became completely indecisive, and so chose the same colors as the model pair. tonight after looking at the photos of my mitt i realized you can't see the sweet picot edge at the bottom, its a design element i really love.
here is a close up of the thumb detail. such a pretty pattern, now i'm imagining it made up in other colors.
i like these photos in the book
here is the back view. i wished i had one of my girls here today, to help model these. but the sweat pant and tshirt ensemble, self timer and spare tiny leica will have to do (oh boy do i miss my camera, off at the repair shop, but i am truly grateful to have a backup!). the book i'm reading is 'the history of love' by nicole krauss. it's been hard to put down right from the start, which is pretty much why i only have one mitt.
raverly notes found here.
the big deal : i'm reading another book. this one arrived a few days ago. it's 'photographer's forum, best of photography 2011' it's a hard cover treasure chest of stunning photos. i'm thrilled that the folks at p.f. chose to use a simple one of mine. (exciting big deal for me). :)
here it is, it's the surf photograph. thank you little rock house and wee knitting rock granny for propping my book open, and thank you so much photographers forum, sigma and serbin communications, for sponsoring this and liking my work.
yarning along with small things and all the other lovely knitters and readershere.
