No Superwash?

Why doesn't Elann.com keep superwash wool in stock? I can never get enough of the stuff and they're my main mail order supplier. It's difficult to get the yarn I need living in the U.A.E. Not very many yarn companies ship here. My next trip to the U.S. isn't going to happen for a few months. Elann.com let me down.

Dress Forms


This is my collection of dress forms bought at various stores here in Dubai. I was amazed when I saw my first one. I'd never seen anything like them in the States. Of course I had to have them all. I was experimenting again with photoshop and with my camera. I don't know what I was thinking by arranging the plant like that. Maybe I'm just proud to have a healthy plant. As if no one would believe me if I didn't take a picture of it.
I decided to change the look of the mosaic. I think the black border makes them look professional. Big Huge Labs is my favorite new website.




Mosaics

After looking at Steph's Flickr page, I decided to try a mosaic. It works better if you have the correct ratio of images. I'll be more careful the next time I edit a set.
I'm still learning to use my new camera. A new light bulb comes on every time I use it. I've started using a UV filter and little different colored flash diffusers. I also love the portrait setting and adep setting.




I knit these booties for Baby Oliver using Lorna's Laces, superwash worsted in Camo. I can't correctly remember the circa 2005? Pattern by Uniform Studio, but I think I found the pattern first on Ravelry.
