I’ve got some cool stuff coming soon because I caved and ordered two things from Amazon this week. One is a photo light box, and I will be using it to retake all of my shop photos so there is a nice uniform look to all of my images. The second is a foam head to display my hats on for photos in my shop since I plan to make several beanies.
I’ll probably have to watch a few Youtube videos to get the idea of how to take nice photos, but it shouldn’t be too hard to do and it will make my shop look so much better. Of course adding all of those photos again and deleting the old ones is going to take ages, but I think it will be worth it.
I also finished up a new beanie for the shop today, which turned out really cute. I’ll be adding it after I get my new prop and set-up and start taking new photos. Its made for a girl, or a woman with a small head, and is dark grey with a hot pink fur trim. I kinda wish it would fit my big head, but I probably don’t need to keep all of my hats. I have that problem already with earrings I make- wanting to keep them all.
I did learn something in making it. Remember to count your stitches as you cast on when working with a fur yarn. It will be nearly impossible to count your stitches after you’ve cast them when they’re furry!
