Oy. Pictures.

I don't know what my problem is, but I have a real aversion to having my picture taken. I just... hate it. But, everyone tells me knits look better when actually modeled. So, there you have it. I'm wearing the sample I knit for Gotham Fine Yarns. I took the pictures myself. Hate the pictures.





Maybe it's like hearing your own voice? I don't know. I just don't think I look like that, but apparently I do.

Less about me, more about the beret! As I extolled in the last post, I just love this yarn. And I love this citron color. Some find it obnoxious, but I think it's the perfect shade. And it goes with all my favorite neutrals!



And, I gotta say... this is a quick knit. Two nights of knitting.

your pictures aren't terrible - you just need either a flash or better lighting (aka daylight) ;o)
I know whereof I speak - I'm guilty of that myself ...
beautiful hat, BTW!

Hi Michelle! Aryn just gave me a link to your blog so here I am!

It's funny about your photos -- I think they're perfectly lovely photos but I don't think that they look like you either. Very strange. But they're still good photos anyway, just of some other person. . .

And a great beret!

We are in agreement--I hate having my picture taken, and I LOVE that shade of green!
