I've promised you the Apple Picking pattern... and it IS coming. I promise. In the last 10 days I have made progress. The video tutorial for how to make tassels is done and you can see that here. I'm trying out a new video set up. It seemed to work pretty well. My lighting is not the best so everything looks yellow-y. But that's a cool vintage look right? Right?! It was fun messing with closeups and splicing them in with the wide shots. I'm learning so cut me some slack! :)
I have also managed to write the pattern. So now... I just need to take the photos. Sometimes that is THE hardest part of making a pattern. And yes, I am including actually making the garment! First off, I have no extra money for hiring of models. And strangely at 39 I have no super attractive 20-something friends... weird. SO I have to model all of my own stuff. UGH. And you know how difficult it is to 'like' a photo of yourself. Basically every time I do a photo shoot, it's torture. I will take upwards of 100 photos and maybe, MAYBE I'll get 5 decent shots. Not even good... just good enough. I need models!!!! If you happen to live in the greater Oklahoma City area and are just drop dead gorgeous in that cool earthy way... please contact me! :) I'd love to have you. I can't actually pay you... well maybe minimum wage. haha!
Stay tuned... I'll be tackling the photos SOON and will get the pattern up quick. Also, I've started working on TWO more of the yarns in my last shipment, so I will be posting about those in the very near future!
