The Nancy shawl is finished and today I found Joan Sunflower dressed in the perfect clothes to model it. I thought we'd be really cool and photograph her modeling it out by the old wagon. Very cool. What I wasn't grokking was the concept of where to stand to get the light right (I know, I know, I need to read the instruction book for the camera, at minimum). I got some reasonable photos and one great photo of the shawl across her back. I just put it into Photoshop, selected the featured area, and cropped it,
and here's what I got...and unfortunately, it was the best photo of the bunch. (Of course, it's already deleted from my camera's memory card.) If anyone has any clues about how I can retrieve this photo, once again I am appealing for your help (boy, it never ends, does it?).
I managed to salvage another, though, so here it is. We love this shawl! It's a perfect size for almost everyone...light and soft...just right for that little extra
over your shoulders to cut a chill. Not that a chill is anywhere in our futures (unless you're leaving in a different hemisphere)...it' still plenty warm here.
Thanks for all the response on my posting about the flood damage to the Ryan's homestead. It makes my heart just about burst at how good people are. You're pretty wonderful, and I wish I could give you all hugs in person.
Off to get in an hour's knitting before bedtime...I've just started the "Modern Quilt Wrap" from Mags Kandis' new book, Folk Style. This is a pretty cool book, if you haven't already checked it out...I highly recommend.---Martie
