These are gorgeous. Those would be excellent for a sharp looking craft studio. Would fabric photograph as nicely, or other things such as buttons? How much would small prints of those go for? The green, white, and dark pink ones would be great colors in my sewnig room (i'm using purple, olive, dark pink and orange).

wow. I really like those. They are definitely the kind of thing I would buy. But then again I am a compulsive knitter. I'm not sure about the general population.


Yep, it's a knit blog

wanna trade? I heart personal swaps.

So beautiful!  I love the look of yarn/textiles.  I don't know if I would buy a print, but as art-cards or post cards (or screen savers or desktop images) I would definately.  I could see them as a series of prints in a yarn shop or similar craft-type location.

I second the idea of approaching yarn companies, and/or knitting magazines.  Your work is amazing!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

What wondrous use of light!

Beautiful!  I'm not a photographer, but I take pictures of my knitting for my blog, and I usually get frustrated trying to photograph the feel of the yarn.  So I am super impressed by how you've captured the texture of the yarns.

You ask if non-knitters would be interested, and I think many would.  Have you ever taken a non-knitter into a yarn shop?  Even if they have no interest in learning to knit, they'll stare at the colors and poke at the textures.  They'll whine about wanting to buy something but not knowing what to do with it.  Your pictures seem to be a good compromise--yarn for non-crafters--a way to buy the yarn without feeling guilty for never turning it into something else.

As for purchasing--if I didn't buy those pictures it would have more to do with my lack of funds than my lack of desire. Smiley

thanks everyone.

yarn company. . . .i'll have to look into that.  and i love the thought of making a knitter's journal or calendar with these pictures in it.  postcards or notecards would be easy, too, and super cute. 

thanks guys.  craftster people are the best people.

Qusly - that is a scarf i made from leftover Kidsilk Haze.  i didn't use a pattern.  here's a better shot of it:

stockinette skinny scarf and two Airy scarves

gathering all the yarn for my christmas knitting really inspired me.  is there anything more luxurious than a pile of yarn. . .that's ALL YOURS?


You got no fear of the underdog. . .that's why you will not survive!

PHOTOGRAPHY - It's what I do, and I'm pretty darn good.

These are beautiful. I love going into yarn stores and just looking at all the diff colours and textures.  The natural light works really well in your pics too. I'd love to do photography, but the technical side of it scares me!

As has been said before I probably wouldn't buy them because I probably couldn't afford to pay what you should get for them. I also don't think I have the right setting to display them. I think they would be fantastic blown up quite large and hung in a rather large room.

The best alternative - and one I could afford would smallish notecards or a daily planner type calendar. I usually buy the Quilt Art notebook calendar so when I'm bored at meeting I can have something cool to look at. This pix would be even better because they are knitterly but not simply knit things.

I'm not sure I expressed any of that very well but you should definitely do something with them.

edited for spelling - why can't I remember to check that before I post.

Oh I love yarn porn.  Seriously, though, great work.
