Candy Palette and A Puffy Crochet Square
In my quest to get over my fear of having to go through the whole trial and error process with taking pictures - I'm impatient! - and my desire to have better quality photos. I've been practicing with the DSLR camera.The iPhone does a pretty good job, however it doesn't provide the clarity a good camera does. Thankfully my sister is patient enough to help me. I'm not sure if my method is a good one, but I tend to just press the settings up and down until the picture looks right. I will have to set aside some time so I can absorb exactly what is what, which should eventually make the process a lot faster and a little less random.
This puffy crochet square. It's not perfect as I am still very much a crochet beginner, but I decided to have a break from my granny squares and make this puffy one from the RedAgape blog. Mandy is a crochet (and style!) inspiration. The pattern really requires a much lighter weight yarn but I only had 8 ply on hand (as mentioned above, I'm impatient) and I really wanted to give it ago. Hence my square is a chunky little number and lovely and squishy. I'm not sure if I will make any more in my 8 ply, though I don't know what it'll do without any friends to accompany it into a cushion cover or something, but I'd love to make more using a finger weight yarn. Guess it'll have to go on the crafting wish list.
