Today is macro monday. Rather than go back to older pictures to find one for today, I took a set of pictures of my latest in progress piece, a three coloured overall lace pattern triangular shawl.
The macro pictures are quite useful for background pictures with texture and colour. The first shawl I made in this style pattern went to a good friend in Ohio. It was a solid green. Much harder to photograph for depth.
I love this pattern of increase. I’ve made overall lacy shawl patterns with one main rib and up to 3 ribs for increases. Making the shawls out of dk yarn is fun. They feel very substantial and a pretty quick to knit up.
I took this centre closeup with the added on wide angle lens for the G9.
Try as I might I just could not get as good a close up shot with the camera alone.
This is the shawl so far. I will add a crochet border around the edge. It will help especially finish up the edge where I drew up the alternate colours when I was not using them.
I have not yet blocked the piece. The lace pattern is making quite a bumpy design that looks interesting in different light situations.
Back to the close ups!
Similar angle different lighting.
With these next two, I can’t decide which one I like better for a background. Once I start loading text on top of each image it will probably become clear which is better to use. Its good to have lots of choice.
And I see I managed to get the end (point of the shawl) to sit up rather than lie a little flat (like in the last pics)
One side view.
And the other side.
Looking at the side with a different light angle.
I really liked the white light, tried flooding the image a bit.
Row close ups. These pictures are really great for a slide show or video. Its relatively easy to use one after the other on a screen for a few seconds in turn and can express movement.
Lastly I want to update the fibre arts project I was showing you earlier of the child’s dress I decorated (heh drew on).
