and it spread

I've decided since one of my resolutions is to take more photos, I'm going to take on project 365. And I'm going to make sure that I'm in every photo. The goal is to make myself feel more comfortable both in front of and behind the camera, and also to make myself be a little creative. I'd heard of project 365 before, but the idea of including myself in all the pictures came from Michelle Carter (blog/flickr). Watching her photos from the past year has really inspired me to give this a try. Most of the photos have been boring so far, but I'm loving playing around with my new camera.

I finished up my final project for 2010 a couple of days before it ended - luckily, because I've been sick pretty much ever since. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I didn't even make it to midnight on NYE. But not that embarrassed, because I needed the sleep. I'm finally feeling a bit better today, but still have a little way to go. I had a request from a friend of a friend to make one of my Beautiful Dawn neckwarmers for his wife in a red cotton (rav link) - I really like the way it turned out -

I'm also starting a new design! It's really my first go with colorwork, and I'm so excited for it! I've got the colorwork design all drawn out.... any guesses as to what it is?

You can see more of my pictures on my Flickr page, and keep up with my project 365 there as well! I will, of course, sign off this evening with some kitty photos! Who doesn't love those, right?


  1. Peacock feather!!! Great idea with the photos!! I could certainly benefit from learning how to better use my camera... Have to add that to my next year's list! HA!

  3. Jennifer, I'm excited about your 365. Don't fall into the trap of thinking your images are boring. The idea of self portraits sounded boring to me too at one time, but we all like that stuff. I like finding things in people that are also in me... and not in me. Things like the way we sit or hold our head, etc. And if all else fails, take one of your shoes :)
