My Latest Crochet Creations

I took some time today to work on my photography. I practiced on my latest design which is a wave stitch. I like the fluidity of these bowls, the way the satin cord makes me want to sculpt it once it is completed. I also used the wave stitch on a hemp twine acorn bowl. The shape of it is very fun.

Doesn't my prop look delicious?

What do you think? I do feel like my photos are starting to show improvement. I know I have been told many times to take lots of shots, but I skimped a bit because it was hot outside and the gnats were gnawing on me.

The next series of designs I am going to work with softer colors of the satin cord. As much as I love the brights, I want to be able to offer muted tones as well.

The photos look good. Great close-ups, great color. Are you using a three sided while "light box"-- three sides of the box lined with white paper? I'm considering building one.

Really love your photos - they capture the texture, luminosity of the thread and gorgeous colour perfectly. Really like the 'wavy' pattern and the different shapes of your baskets - sooo versatile. Fantastique!!

Hi Lissa, Thank you ever so much for your recent blog kindness and encouragement. These are fantastic by the way! I would love to learn how to crochet. Can you teach me?

When it comes to photographs, well, I'm utterly useless! I give all that duty to my husband. Most of my blog photos are his work.
