I finished my Noro Striped Scarf last week but hadn't gotten a chance to capture it gracing the neck of its intended warmee until now...
I have to admit that I really get a kick out of playing photographer and setting up photoshoots of sorts with my husband even though getting nice natural looking photos of him is a challenge. It's not that he isn't nice and natural looking, because he totally is! And charming too ;0) It's just that for some reason when there's a camera nearby, he has this weird compulsion to stand/sit up straight as a board with arms straight down by his sides and a facial expression that brings to mind an 8 year old who just got caught doing something naughty and is *trying* to look innocent. We call it his "er" pose.
The only way to defeat the "er" pose is to try to catch my honey off guard with my wittiest repartee ;0) Heehee! And while it is a lot of fun, it's actually not that effective as the result is many many really blurry laughing action shots that do nothing for the Noro. But such fun! It's what we did Saturday afternoon while both the kids were napping!
For the love of knitting, my goony-googoo put on a warm woolen sweater in 30 degree weather, wrapped himself in a seriously warm scarf and paraded around our backyard while I coaxed him to look pretty, not blink, try to make the scarf look nicer and try to look like there is't a tree growing out of his head! When we were all done, we took it inside probably for another 15 minutes looking for 'good' light! And he humoured me as always because that's the kind of loving man he is.
He sooo earned the Noro ;0)
