Question

Whenever I try to take pictures of my knitting projects, the image is never really that clear, or the color gets distorted.  (actually, the color issue happened for both of these examples).  I’ve tried without the flash, but then it seems to take the camera longer to snap the photo, giving my hands a good chance to shake while waiting for the camera to snap the photo.

My camera: Nikon Coolpix S3000

Do you use the same camera? Any suggestions for the settings I should use to get better quality images?

Under Construction

I was bored with the blank image icons on my Ravelry projects so I created an “icon” to use while I’m working on projects before I post any pictures (whether while in the process or just finished images).

I think it looks cute and thought I’d post it here. And I figured it had been a while since I last posted and wanted to let everyone know I’m still working on things!

Currently, I have a hat on some needles (it’s from my earlier post that listed all the projects I needed to complete. I also began a square today for another co-worker baby blanket. (We made a blanket for my co-worker Sarah last spring, which you can read about here).

Here’s the image. I only used Microsoft word and got the image from the clip art files. Feel free to use it if you’d like.
