An old (but recently discovered!) FO: Foliage

As I was digging through a bunch of knitting stuff the other day, I happened upon a hat I completed a couple years ago.  It was so nice to see it after such a long time!  I don't know that I ever wore it at all.  It somehow got sucked into the knitting void without ever seeing the light of day!
It's Foliage by Emily Mooney from the Fall 2007 Knitty (Rav it).  I can't remember many details, but I do believe I used Knit Picks Risata sock yarn in Marionberry held double throughout.  I'm pretty sure I used a little over a skein.  

It's so sproingy and comfy...and the yarn is stretchy enough that it fits comfortably over my big head.

As usual, I take my blog photos right after work to catch the nice light.  Well, that, and I do it when I'm alone so that I don't have to hear the incessant teasing I would hear if Jeff were home.  He thinks its weird I take so many photos of yarn and yarn-related things.  I think he buys way too many power tools.  We agree to disagree on these points. ;)

However, the one bad thing about trying to take pictures while I'm here by myself is that I always struggle with taking decent shots of myself modeling FOs.  I do have a tripod and a remote control for my camera, but I find it very difficult to get the good angles I want when I'm in front of the lens.  Add in the fact that my house has such poor lighting and you see why I hardly ever have any decent photos of myself on here.

Until today.   I figured out that if I crouch down just right in our downstairs bathroom that I can take advantage of the natural light coming through the window while balancing my camera on the toilet.  Certainly not ideal, but it sort of worked! 

Apparently taking toilet pictures is very serious business. This is my the-camera-went-off-before-I-was-ready look. No smiles just yet.
















Okay, here we go. I finally got a smile out at just the right moment before the shutter snapped. And then a split second after that I had to lunge for my camera as it toppled ever-so-precariously near the edge of the back of the toilet.















That was a close call.  Note to self: Shut toilet lid before next photo session. That really should go without saying, but I thought I'd throw that out there. ;)

    But this post really made me laugh!! Toilet seat lid rule duly noted. =0)
