Sunlight and Shadow – some new pinhole pictures outdoors

Today marks something of a shift in my working patterns, I’m outdoors using exposures of no more than 20 seconds and yes there is even a bit of colour creeping in, the green from the nasturtiums came through the exact shade of my old photo tinting kit so I decided to keep it. Consider this an experiment. I may yet revert to very dark contrasty b&w indoor photographs. A few of my favourites below, the rest can be seen on my flickr.

Pinhole Photographs April 2014

Peter upgraded his camera so the D200 has been sitting all forlorn and unloved on his desk for a while – I have claimed it for my own along with as many spare batteries as can be scrounged up from the office. Had quite a productive aftenoon, some of my favourites below, the rest can be seen on my flickr page here

Crochet-a-long

I have been asked to design a new crochet pattern for a crochet-a-long being held by members of the “Swap on a Budget” group on Ravelry.

As it happens I got really into it and came up with two patterns which can be made as stand alone items or a set. The patterns can be downloaded for free from my Ravelry store.

The CAL will officially begin 1 February, which is also the day of sign ups for this groups swap. It will be spread out with the pattern instructions being sent out on 1 February, 8 February, and the last set of instructions on 15 February (when sign ups close)!

Japonica Shawl

Hey folks, I’ve been knitting again working with some really pretty Japanese yarn, Yuzen by Noro. Fibre content is 56% wool, 34% silk and 10% kid mohair, its quite a textured yarn but  still soft enough to not be scratchy. Lovely stuff to work with. It has long random colour changes resulting in blended stripes when knitted up. My pattern is available from Ravelry, just click on the picture to view the pattern listing.

September photos

Been attempting some digital pinhole photography in bright sunlight. This required using ISO 100 and some relatively fast exposure times (for me anyway) of just a few seconds.

Fortunately the kids move like lightening so you still get that delightful motion blur and ghostly transparent quality. heres a few samples, the full set can be viewed here.
