I've crocheting like crazy to open a new etsy store. Here are some of the sample pictures. I'm still practicing to get the best shot

I think your shots of that scarf look great. I'm jealous that I can't quite seem to capture our stuff like that

As for the lighting, I either take the pics in the daytime or I use extra lights. I point them straight up in the air or I filter the light with a sheet so its not so harsh

I also try to plan out my shot first. I spend a couple of minutes looking up shots that I like and that I don't like so I can get better angles

Here is an old picture with the shirt on, LOL


Beautiful work everyone!

I learned how to crochet when I was a teenager. I learned how to knit about 2 years ago. I borrowed a knitting video from the public library. It was marketed towards teenagers. Amazon.com: No-Rules Knitting at the Teen Knit Cafe: Chelsea Povall: Movies & TV

I recently finished a newsboy hat for myself and now I am working on a crochet mobius scarf for my mom. I am going to practice knitting in the round when I am finished with the scarf.

Here are some sites for crochet and knitting patterns:

Does anyone else use one?

Anyone know how to crochet metal? I bought this tutorial and I can NOT figure it out!!!

I have never used the Knifty Knitter but it is on my Christmas list. Hope I get it!

The necklace looks like tube crochet or crocheting in the round. Not sure though. It looks very interesting. I usually don't buy patterns but I may have to buy this one to satisfy my curiosity.

if you would like to um, assist me, perhaps i can send it your way so we can figure it out together. When I tried it was a sloppy mess!
Wow! Those tube necklaces are very cool. Would make good gifts.

I still haven't received the pdf. The smallest needle that I have is a US D/3 or 3.25 metric. Does it require something smaller?

The knifty knitter looks neat. Is it easy? Would it be worth it even though I know how to use needles?

Random, probably irrelevant question... Do you reball your yarn, or use it straight from the skeen?
