FO Friday...

Today didn't start too well...I bought Lou some new pants yesterday and when I bought them, I knew it would be a bad idea. As fun as it is to have socks and pants with the days of the week on them, she *has* to wear them on the right day of the week so when she put her Friday pants on then managed to get them wet in the space of five minutes then insisted she *needed* to wash and wear them and no thanks, wearing my Monday ones won't be funny, Mummy, the house was fast descending into chaos.


Ten minutes before we had to leave the house, she was drying them with the hair dryer. Fab!  The day could only get better, right?

Well it turns out, it has been quite a good day. School sports day was cancelled so I ended up with some extra time to re-take the photos I took of my new Karrie bags at the start of the week and get them on the website.


I'm not that fab at taking photos and I have been known to stop making bags for the website if they are a nightmare to photograph and these bags were fast becoming the next victim, only to be seen at shows and shops but I think I have solved the problem and this photo isn't that bad, to say that I am not a photographer.  The coordinating yarn helps a little bit too :) I love these bags, you can get so much in them. I used one for my jumper so they are definitely not just for socks.

I've finally got around to blocking my Miss Kitty top this week so I have some photos of it for FO Friday. I really enjoyed knitting it and it was a fairly quick knit too. No seam knitting is the way ahead; as soon as the knitting is finished, it's all ready, no sewing up seams.


I stuck to this pattern except for adding another set of repeats because even though the pattern claimed the model was 5'9 and the top fell on her hips, she was clearly either not that tall or straight up and down because the sample I had tried in the shop was rather too sort. I'm glad I added those extra rows because it would have been too short otherwise.


If you want to find out more about this knit, have a look on my Ravelry projects page, here.

Well based on your photograph, I just had to go and buy one of these bags, so they can't be that bad! I think you might improve the photo if you have two sources of diffused light on either side of the item, as well as the front. If you use a light tent and shine desk lamps through the nylon on either side, that should do the trick. My light tent was less than £20 from eBay. Just a suggestion, I don't know if you want to go to the hassle of doing it, but it might improve things slightly.
