There will be a lot of admiration of knitted items this weekend for me! You? Have a wonderful time!
A Possible Mother's Day Gift?
The reddish-pink pineapple scarf (below) is made from Ella Rae Silkience. I like it, but it's almost too drapey. I think I'll try this pattern again in a bulky yarn! Once I find a pattern I like, I crochet it in several different yarns until I find the perfect match!

In a few weeks I'm taking a class at Loop & Leaf Yarn Shop in Santa Barbara called "Photography for Knitters Workshop...photographing your finished proects." Acclaimed photographer, Gale Zucker, is teaching the class. Even though I'm married to a professional photographer and have learned many techniques from Mr. Larry just by hangin' with him, I know that I'll learn some excellent new approaches from Gale. She has photographed many yarn-related books and articles. I'm looking forward to the class and to finally meeting Gale in person!
Addendum: After looking at my photos above, I can already see where I need some improvement. I should have placed the RED shawl closer to something GREEN or BLUE for a higher contrast so that the red would pop. These are the principals I have used in painting. They apply to photography too. Composition, color, lighting and placement are key elements. At least I have a basic knowledge....can't wait to learn more secrets!
At the reception, I spied this very elegant lady with Krisel's structural engineer, Richard Bradshaw. I admired her sable hat / headband. She is Mrs. Bradshaw (actress Chanin Hale). We had a very long conversation about appropriate headgear for Southern California. I admire Mrs. Bradshaw's fashion sense and style. The Bradshaws are a delightful couple.
