(un)flattering photos

The sun was shining this afternoon in Rostrevor and I thought I’d finally bite the bullet and take some photos of finished projects. Procrastination is my middle name and some of these knits had been waiting a long time to see the light of day. In the case of the shrug, it’s taken me three years to get round to stitching all the bits together, let alone block it which I’ll probably do tomorrow, and I’m just glad it’s in a photograph-able state! Of course as soon as I whipped my camera out the sun decided to disappear. But no matter, at least it’s done now.

Photographed in the front garden/courtyard bit of the DB’s house (thank you for your help, you are a patient man!), here are my ‘Old Stone Wall Shawl’, ‘Orchid and Fairy Lights Beanie’ and ‘Little Miss Prim Shrug’ for you to peruse. (click the names above to see their Ravelry project page and get all the details of the patterns) My favourite photo is the side shot of the beanie and behind me you can see an old typewriter sitting on the windowsill, framed in red. Happy accident!

Off to wallowing in my sense of achievement…
