You might be thinking these projects are a little out of season.

We also had that thought…

but didn’t let that stop us.

Actually I wasn’t really speaking of pumpkins was I?  I was complaining about how difficult it is to nicely photograph silver.  These Rosaries, for a special order, were especially hard to photograph and we haven’t even completed the one made entirely of silver beads.

We carved our first pumpkin of the season today. 

We’ll see how long it lasts in this heat.

PS: 48 hours.  Good thing I took pictures.

And you thought photographing knits was hard!  I always conveniently forget how difficult it is to photograph silver until it’s time to do it again.  You can’t have too much light because then there’s a glare.  Not enough light and it looks dull.  Too far away and you may as well be taking pictures of insects.  Too close and it’s all a blur.  You get the idea.

That said.  I did get some passable pictures of most of the rings from J’s newest batch.

Thank you L’Tanya!!!!

Now what to make?  This yarn makes me want to write a short story it seems so bursting with personality.  I may just have to artfully display it for a while as its true character unfolds…
