Hooking and snapping

I did it! I mastered the two colour thing :-

I know the colour combination is revolting, but I was using up oddments to practice. It is, however, official. There is now no stopping me. Blanket here I come.

I've bought this wool for the purpose. It's Stylecraft and the colours are, clockwise from the left :-Cream, Camel, Copper, Mocha, Khaki, and Sunshine.
I'm not 100% sure if the Sunshine isn't a little too strident. What do you think?

At the weekend I decided to practice my photography and try and get used to David's fancy-schmancy camera using the girls as victims models.

These were my favourite shots of each of them :-

Eloise, whose tights are meant to look like that apparently.

Naomi looking pensive (Damn! I was going for thoughtful)
And these are a couple of  more arty type ones :-Glitter!

I think the copper and sunshine will help to lift the blanket. Well done on a new technique (hobby) learned.
BTW those photos of your girls are fab, they are so pretty.

Goodluck with the blanket.

beautiful pictures of the girls!!
I am quite envious as my eldest doesn't want her picture taken with us or with her friends.

The yellow will not look quite as bright with the other colors. You might want to use it as an accent color. Lovely, fun pictures of two lovely young women,

Lovely photos of your girls too.

Julie said...

Great choice of colours for the blanket, can't wait to see some progress pics - crochet is soooo addictive!

Supers pics of the girls, i think you have mastered the super-duper camera

Maureen said...

Great pictures - you certainly seem to have mastered the camera.

I LOVE the yarn and am jealous that we cannot seem to get these beautiful fall colors here. I think the Sunshine will work in the right spot to lift up the afghan. I used a purple for the middle of my granny squares to lift up mine too. And remember you can always try it and not use it if you are not pleased with the results. I am looking forward to seeing your afghan grow!

Great pictures of your girls!

Hugs from Holland ~
