Mom's Fable Mittens

I knit a pair of fable fingerless mitts a few months ago for my mom- just in time for the weather to warm up, of course. I finally took pictures of them last weekend.


My mom loved them. I knit it in alpaca, which we got from the DFW Fiber Fest. I knit it in the round, and made them a bit longer than the pattern calls for.


Again, I'm still moping. I'm almost done with my Multnomah shawl now, but I've been wrestling it since yesterday because apparently I can't read or count. I'm just ready for it to be done. My friend Jozy keeps telling me I should be knitting bunnies, so we'll see if that's the next project I cast on...

Do you take your pictures in a light box? The photography is fabulous!

Nope, I use Eskimimi Knits's tutorial for manipulating the image. I have a regular point and shoot canon digital camera (this is the newest version of mine- I have an SD1200), and I put a piece of paper (or butcher paper in this case) in the background, or I photograph things in front of a white background such as my down blanket or wall. Then I edit the photos in GIMP, a free alternative to photoshop. The photos above were actually taken in the back yard of my parents' house, so it was quite a challenge trying to make sure their palm trees/pool didn't get in the photo. I know absolutely nothing about photography or photo editing, so it's mostly me playing around. Thanks so much for your comment!
