Sneak Peeks

Here are a few sneak peeks for the opening of my shop.  Please keep in mind that I haven't edited these at all.  There is only one picture that I don't feel is accurate, and that's Raisins.  It looks more brown than purple in person.

Also, I'm finding that red is so very hard to photograph.  I have two beautiful skeins of red yarn that I've named Vesuvius.  When I popped those bad boys out of the dyepot, I said 'volcano.  YES.. LAVAAA.'  But you can't name something ... just ... lava?  Or lavaaa, for that matter.  Vesuvius sounds a tad more sophisticated.

So, long story short, I tried a couple times to photograph them and they come out looking ... orange-y.  Instead of lava red.  I'll try again this weekend before I start googling 'how the heck do I photograph red yarn???'

Wooly Worsted -- Blue Lagoon

Wooly Sport -- Raisins

Wooly Sock -- Oh, Glorious Summer

Wooly Sock -- Dead Leaves on the Ground

Wooly Sock -- Deep Waters

Wooly Sock -- In the Middle of the Night

Wooly Sock -- Leaf Week

Wooly Sock -- Put a Lime in It

Like I said, I have two more skeins of red to try to photograph and one more skein of worsted that I'm going to overdye because it just didn't turn out the way I had hoped.

I'm hoping to have everything ready for a grand-ish opening on October 23!


  1. These look so nice, I really like the lime one. Great names too.

    I would try photographing the red in natural light. try a north facing window. Then you may have to do a little adjusting in Photoshop or whatever program you use. Reds are often tricky. Cameras seem to favor certain colours. My fushias are always way too saturated.

  2. Thank you so much! I will try shooting in natural light.

  3. red is an absolute beeeee-yotch to photograph. try indirect light. or a little shady.

    other suggestions for the lava yarn name: hot hot sexy LAVA. i think it's pretty sophisticated, as far as names go, don't you?
