A Yarn Photo Shoot, Some Sidebar Tweeking, and A Bloom Drop

I decided to spruce up my sidebar yesterday, and I'm really glad I did because it led to a hilarious yarn-throwing photo shoot.  I used a tripod and a camera remote, and it was super tricky to get the timing right.  Most of the pictures ended up being of me about to throw the yarn or of me looking disappointed because I had already thrown the yarn.  I ended up with some keepers, though!

Here are 3 of them:

I chose the last one to be my new sidebar photo.  Do you think I made the right choice?

I also downloaded the KG Flavor and Frames Font, which is a a collection of frames and flags by Kimberly Geswein, and I used it to make the little banner that says "Hi there, Friends!" under the new sidebar photo.  I can't wait to use the font in other places around the blog as well!

In other news, remember the group yarn bombings led by One Sheepish Girl that I've participated in before?  (There were the leaves and the hearts.)  Well, there's another one happening this weekend, and I can't wait to show you what I'm knitting for it!

Until then...


  1. Definitely the right choice, it's a really great photo. Your sidebar is lovely.

  2. I think that's an excellent choice ! :)

  3. all photos are great, but the last one is the best :)

  4. Love them, especially the first!

  5. Cute photos! My girls love yarn but oh my, they can make quite a mess with it. That scarf is so pretty! Hope you are enjoying your weekend. :)

  6. haha i feel like i can related with you on this, i try to take shots like these too with my cam and my remote. i think you choose the right pic for the sidebar cuz it fits that space well but my fave would be the first photo. its like a mgazine shot :D ill prolly add a little filter in it to make it jazzy ^^ im glad i found your blog :)

  7. I love the shots and the blog design, definitely works for me. It's clean, pleasing on the eye and simple to navigate.
    The colour of the skein is spot on too :)

  8. They're all such cute photos! My favorite is probably the first one, because it looks like the yarn is a floating balloon. But the one you picked is great for the sidebar too, it has a great energy!

  9. I luv, love, LOVE your new side bar photo! It is so playful and crafty. Very creative. It makes me want to start tossing around my yarn stash too!

    P.S. Your knit bouquet for the yarn bomb is adorable!
