After spending 25 minutes looking through my photograph files on my computer for the “good” pictures of the Harvest Tea Cozy to upload them to Patternfish, I have decided that maybe, just maybe, I should be more organized about my pictures! There are definately files I should just delete and some that I should edit pictures out of but it all takes time…..and who knew that some day I would be checking out every siingle file looking for the picture that I had used on the front of a pattern that I had finished 2 years ago! How can we plan ahead for something that we don`t even see coming!
Loading my patterns onto Patternfish is progressing, but slowly, this mornings efforts are a perfect example of why! They have only opened up 2 of my patterns for sale and I have loaded up about 25. I would imagine that we go into a queue, and as we come up we are loaded. I will be patient. Back to photography.
Because of my patterns I started to take pictures, because I liked taking pictures of my patterns, I started to take more pictures, now I take pictures all the time, but I don`t edit them near often enough! I have heard that this is a common problem. I recently joined a FaceBook group that is about Photography – I love Photography. There are some real photographers in the group and I have seen some incredible pictures. I hope that I learn from them. I am more of a learn by doing kind of person, but I am always open to suggestions!
As to my organizational abilities, I work in organized Chaos. This suits me but would drive many crazy. After my efforts this morning I may have to review my picture files a little more stringently as I go!
In that chaos this morning I am working on my Purple Wrapsody, and have added 5 inches to the length and decided that I will need more yarn, because I have decided that it needs to be longer and the sleeves are going to be straight rather than shaped and how things do change from initial idea to pattern in progress! Whew! That was a mouthful! I need to take a picture of my progress to share, you see how this picture taking becomes habitual! Obsessions are born from less.
I am also working on a new hat, an easy worsted pattern, knit flat or in the round for my Beginners II class. It is an ex cuse to work with this new yarn that I have been wanting to work with, Heron – a merino possum blend. No pictures yet, I have only one inch of ribbing done!
Happy Knitting and Happy Picture Taking
PS I wore Irish yesterday and took my camera to work so that someone could take a picture of me wearing it, but forgot to take the camera out and ask someone to take a picture! I don`t really like having my picture taken, maybe that was why I forgot! LOL! Anyway it fits great and I love it. I`ll try again another day.
