Saturday’s photo shoot was only just beginning with the shots of Oh! Canada. Despite Hannah’s complaints about the cold I told her to suck it up and deal. I may have threatened and bribed a bit, too. Anything for my art, you know.
Here we have the Zetor Scarf knit in Brooks Farm Primero. This was a fast little knit in the week leading up to Christmas. I call this my Heat Miser shawl because the color reminds me of the Heat Miser’s hair.
Hannah’s complaints about the cold had me hurrying so much that I didn’t even noticed that most of these shots are lousy and overexposed. Once I did notice, she was already inside by the woodstove and there was no coaxing her back outdoors so we’re stuck with these.
Frankly, I’m not that thrilled with this shawl and the fact that the photos aren’t great sort of goes along with my feelings in general. It’s not the pattern – that’s beautiful. It’s the yarn. I should have learned my lesson the first time I used this stuff but I didn’t.
Even though it’s not the light and flirty little shawl I thought it would be, the red does brighten up my charcoal grey wool jacket and I’ve worn it several times in the last couple of weeks.
Honestly, though, I think I’m done with the mohair. I’m just not crazy about the mo. You know?
