The Thing About Big Projects

I have a lot of big projects that I’m working on: A blanket, 2 shawls (both of which have been on the needles for months), my 2nd foray into cables, and I just finished socks. A lot of knitters don’t consider fingering weight socks to be a “big” project (after all, they go on your feet), but I do. And the thing about big projects is that they are hard to take pictures of. Pictures on the needles are bunched up and awkward and inside lighting is usually rubbish. And then it’s hard to show progress in photos without it looking like 20 of the same picture.

So here is me trying. Wish me luck!

  1. Good luck with the photographing! I spent five years knitting the Beekeeper’s quilt by Tiny owl knits. I don’t know if my progress pics really showed any progress but it was so much fun (and easy because of the size of the pieces) to take different pics of the little honeycombs.
