A Little Yarn Pørn In The Making

I was excited to get some time with Amy of Amy P. Photography recently. Amy is a local photographer with a fun, laid back, easy to talk to style.  Although she specializes in babies, weddings, and all sorts of sweet, timeless photos, she also does some product photography.  We decided to try a session with yarn and knits to see how it would work out.

I had no idea you could have so much fun watching someone take pictures!

We went through a large bin of yarn and two baskets of knits.  Plus some sweaters.

Amy seemed to intuitively grasp the vibe I wanted.

And, I really enjoyed watching how she put items together.  She has that knack for piling a few things together and having them look perfect.

By the end of our shoot, I was incredibly sorry my children are all too grown for baby pictures.  

Now it's all on me to learn some new skills and make the Elliebelly Dye Works website match the new look on the Blog.  And most importantly, I'm hoping to put to use the experience I've gained from my experimentation with dyeing and knitting with the yarn I've dyed over the last few years to share some insight into the selection of yarn and patterns that work well together.  It's a slow work in progress, but I'm so glad to have started down that path.  I think as knitters, we all want to share the knowledge we have to help others — it's one of the best parts of being a knitter.  I'm so happy I'll have Amy's wonderful photos to help illustrate what I've learned!

  1. I’ve been kinda out of the loop (pun intended!) but I LOVE the sound of an Elliebelly Dye Works website!! My knitting world is just not complete without your beautifully dyed yarn in it……
