My knitting, in a nutshell. Wait, do nutmegs have shells?
One thing I enjoy about having a blog is that I feel some sort of (self-imposed) pressure to have good photographs. How do you get good photographs? You could take a class like I did (and would totally take again), and you have to just take pictures. Lots of pictures. I do take a lot of pictures, but wanted to push myself a bit. I challenged myself to a "30 day photo challenge" that I spotted on pinterest. (More on that in a minute). Today I found, and promptly pinned this one:
Let's ignore the fact that this particular challenge was from August, 2011 and it is was January when I tried it. Let's also ignore the fact that I lost track of it on the weekends and there was a week when my whole house was sick. Let's ignore that I also only shot photos on 21 days. Practice is practice.
I knit. A lot. I like to make functional things and silly things, and frequently put these items on my mini-dachshund. When I am not knitting or crocheting I am thinking about these things for my clients, as I am an account manager doing social media marketing for yarn companies, yarn shops and designers. It is a great job that I enjoy and I feel incredibly lucky to have. I am able to work from home and enjoy my two children.
