You've got a good point there Bea, it wasn't a fail, and actually would probably be perfect if I took the time to block it, because the only thing I'm not thrilled with about it, is the edges are a little woobely.
I guess I was looking at it from the point of view that my time/experience wasn't of much value on that piece because it was my first attempt, instead of looking at it from a quality point of view. Maybe it is worth more : )
& Le-Chat, I never noticed until you said something, maybe it's this new computer, but that w.i.p photo look way too bright, and almost washed right out I know the ones of me with it on are kind of crappy because I had my boyfriend take them with my moms camera. I'm not really, quite sure what you mean about a 'drape' photo though. I get the basic like 'oh a photo of it draped on something' but do you mean holding it or just having it laid over something?
This isn't that great a picture of the 'scarf' because it was something I made/kept for myself and I was really just taking pictures of myself w/ it on, but unfortunately I don't have better pics right now, and it's too hot to take new ones lol. I finished this one a couple years ago when I decided I really missed the little red hooded scarf I had when I was a little girl. The hood and scarf ends are all one piece with one seam down the back of the hood. It's really warm, and I love it.
I'd really like to get more knitted and crocheted items up in my shop, but the only problem is that stuff takes so long for me to finish things. It seems like it takes so long to get one thing done, that I get bored with it, and end up setting it aside to work on something else
