I love my Brickless scarf/shawl, but the pictures I took are kind of terrible. I have no idea what was going on. I’m blaming it on the holiday frenzy even though it’s now January 8. I think there is only one good picture. It goes against every blogging-with-pictures rule to put these pictures in here but I’m doing it anyway because I’m too impatient to try and take more. I think you’ll get the idea of what it looks like.
Note to self (again): Get a better camera (then read that book you got on taking pictures and practice taking pictures).
This defeats the point of having a “light-box-that-isn’t-really-a-light-box” since you can see the edges and there is a glare from the window. But I wanted to show you the asymmetry.

And I wanted to show you the back – this one is blurry:
But I love it. It’s funky and eclectic. It was pretty easy to knit and went along very quickly. And I really love the yarn – Periwinkle Sheep merino d k. LOVE.
Ok. Sorry to put you through that. I’m going to re-group and finish “recovering from the holidays” so the next post won’t be so painful for you to look at!
