This week I thought I would provide a slightly different fiber perspective - the one from my camera lens.
If any of you didn't know, I love my camera. I love fiber and textiles. I love taking photos of my fiber and textiles. Pretty simple, eh?
As a result of an inspiring exchange during last summer, I did some quick furniture rearranging and I now have a fiber still-life in my living room. It changes constantly, reflecting whatever current projects I'm working on or have planned. This first series of photos is of the still-life, several weeks ago. I was exploring perspective and light, but you'll get that pretty quickly once you see the photos.
And now, two from the other side:
These next two photos were taken on a late autumn afternoon. I really enjoyed all the sunlight, even if it did slightly wash out the shawl colors:
Finally, I leave you with a study of green fiber (a mohair blend and a strand of kidsilk held together) and it's crochet hook:
Happy fiber arts Friday! Definitely check out Andrea's blog and see what everyone else is up to this week.
Oh, and have a superfiberfragilistic weekend. I'll be blogging every day next week as part of the second annual Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week - where you just might see a new F.O. ... or two.
Stay tuned ...
