I took this picture when I first started it, it’s about 5ft long now! 🙂

Still a bit messy around the edges, but I’ve read that putting vasaline around the edges works really well and you can just wipe the vasaline off when you’re finished. But I don’t own any vasaline so i’ll have to pick some up next time i’m at the drug store.

I’m working on custom orders for mittens this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s so much fun, plus it means I get to buy more yarn. I’m also working on some new mitten patterns and would like to do some cabled mittens, but haven’t gotten the sizing right as of yet. Soon though.

Photo Shoot!!!

This is going to be a rather lengthy post … but it’s mostly pictures 🙂

I have a major backlog of cowls and scarves that need to be photographed and today was the day it finally got done… okay a portion of it got done, but it’s progress.

Previous to this photo session our pictures were just basic and in front of a white back drop, I was told to do this by a number of people on Etsy. However after listening to some advice from an actual photographer on TheCraftStar I decided to change things up a bit.

 

Needless to say we had a fun day.

Enjoy

No makeup, this is before the shoot. Someday I plan on doing a make-up tutorial since a few people have asked for one. I now have some before and after pictures! I generally only wear makeup for photo sessions so I’m a bit out of practice.

After makeup… man i really need to clean my mirror! Gross!

 

Moving on.

New oatmeal cowl, made from Peruvian highland wool, 100% ecological wool

Isis decided to grace us with her presence … for all of 5 seconds before she started chasing butterflies again.

The Rainbow Scarf! This bad boy is about 10ft long, I need to remeasure to be sure, but it’s huge!! Silky soft and knit with vegan yarn.

I had to rock my sunglasses in a few shots to give my eyes a break, you can see the colors in the scarf, and the pattern much better in this shot.

Last but not least, the Lacework Cowls are back again this year! I had a ton of requests for them last year so I decided to add them again this season. So far I’ve got this pink, and a green. And can do a various array of colors.

Fall Vegetables in the garden!

Since we don’t see winter here until December, possibly late November. I planted some pumpkins, and 2 different types of winter squash a bit later than I normally would have.

I got 2 bales of hay today and have spent most of the day working on that, and weeding around the raised beds.

It’s getting a little too hot out now to keep working, I’ll probably go back out later tonight after dinner maybe.

Our lone pumpkin plant. Out of a packet of seeds we only got one plant. Which has been the trend this year it seems. Our garden needs a lot of help this year, which was surprising because it had been a garden for years. But I think the previous owner used chemicals to treat their garden instead of using organics. I’m also hoping this will help keep some of the weeds at bay, and at the very least make them easier to pull up. I should have done this first thing this spring but we had just moved in so things were a bit chaotic. Hopefully next season will be better for crops.

 

Winter Squash

as you can see i need to put more hay down, which hopefully will be done tonight 🙂

 

Next year I need to stagger planting my vegetables more so we are getting a constant harvest instead of all at once which is what it kind of turned out to be this year.

This weekend we’re continuing our work on the greenhouse and hopefully getting some hotboxes going with spinach and lettus in them.
