It’s way past the acceptance deadline for some fingerless mitts I submitted to Interweave Knits (which I didn’t blog about), so I submitted them to Knitty.
I usually take my own photos in my backyard, but Knitty would be publishing these photos, so they had to be good and interesting.
These mitts have a 1950s Atomic Era feel to them, and my sweet friend Angie just so happens to have Atomic-inspired home décor, so I took my camera and tripod over to her house last week and we got to work.*
I can’t show you the mitts, but I can show you parts of our fun photo shoot.
We started out in her kitchen, looking for creative ways to display the mitts.
Then we moved outside where the light was better, and where her two dogs totally behaved themselves and didn’t try to sneak into the frame even once.**
After I checked and rechecked my pattern, charts, and photos, and made sure I didn’t miss anything***, I uploaded my submission package—a week early!
I think this is my 527th submission to them, so please send up 527 prayers and good thoughts that this is my first acceptance.
*After we drank some coffee while she cleaned her kitchen.
**Not even the littlest bit true.
***I forgot to include my headshot. Grr.
