I knit these mittens for my boyfriend's birthday (which was actually about a month ago) but i just took a picture last night. The pattern came from the book Fox and Geese and Fences (or something like that) which is a book of mitten patterns. I used Knit Picks Palette which I like (mostly for the price) but I do have to say they fuzz and pill quite a bit. luckily my boyfriends couldnt give hoot but I'm constantly obsessiving over them. The colors are a little less vibrant. oh and by the way I don't ever really take pictures of my knits but when I do they turn out like complete poop. Is there any trick to taking a good picture of knitting?

Those are great!

It seems like every time I use the flash to take a picture of anything knitted, it doesn't turn out too well. Try taking pictures of your items during the day, in some natural light, without the flash on. That's what I've done for all of my pictures, and they turn out pretty well.

Wow, you did an excellent job with the pattern. I am sure he will love them.

For photos, I try to take mine on a light background, and set the focus for closeups (a flower symbol) which allows me to focus on the stitches. I find black knitting or crochet usually doesn't show up that well. And if you can take a photo outside in the natural light it's usually the best. (I know that can be difficult this time of year). The background can affect your colours too, so usually a white background will be the best for showing the true colours.
