I love pink roses, I don't like red roses at all, and that's putting it quite mildly, for some reason red roses disgruntle me.
Pink, I learnt about a year ago, is the true colour of love. Red is the colour of passion. What d'you make of that in relation to my red rose reaction hey?!
The pink in these photos are a bit red looking aren't they?! They're actually HOT pink, not red!
Let's have a few calming beach photos shall we.
But as with anything in life, nothing is perfect, and we sometimes get long stretches of cold grizzly weather.
So it is with something akin to jealousy that I've been looking at Lori's light. She lives in a place with wonderful light, which helps with wonderful photographs. Of course, her superb artistic eye for composition and narrative are all her own vision, and if you don't have that, no amount of good light is going to result in good photographs. Would you like to know where you can see Lori's beautiful world? It's easily reached by visiting her blog 'lori times five', the link is here.
I've been doing about four a day, two at lunch time, two if I get a chance in the evening. These four add up to a little pile. I now have a pile of diamond shapes! You won't be able to get the true feeling from looking at, and handling a pile of knitted diamonds, in these photographs, but in real life, it's a delicious thing to experience. Trust me.
I must be getting that feeling Stephanie from Tiny Owl Knits talks about in her video here, where talks about her hexipuffs.
The tutorial for making the diamonds I'm knitting is here.
So I've increased the diamonds I've knitted from my last post about them, here ..........
Blocking makes a big difference to these little numbers. You see how they're all curled up at the back in the above photo? The ones at the front have been blocked by laying a damp tea towel over each one, and pressing with a warm iron.
