After carefully arranging the Melon Scarf for its most recent photo shoot and then posting to the blog, it got tossed on the bed, all crumpled up – its typical state. Even while lounging, the ripply texture caught my attention, and I thought this “candid” shot would make great Eye Candy Friday.

Next, I tossed the scarf on the couch, but didn’t straighten or arrange anything:

Oh, the shots you, too, can have with a fast lens :).

    That color is really phenomenal. And I have total lens envy! (I left the battery charger for my “good” camera–which is only half as good as yours–at my parents’ at Thanksgiving, and am having withdrawal.)

    Wow, that is gorgeous! Absolutely beautiful posed or candid. I love that yarn too!! Might have to pick me up some of that yarny goodness. πŸ™‚

    For all of it – the camera, the yarn, the skill… It’s great you’ve got a camera that can do your knitting justice!

    Mmmmm – so yummy. And now I have yet one more thing to add to my Amazon wish list – that lens! (I have – and love – the Digital Rebel as well)

    I am still in love with that green and constantly in search of what you call Happy Green. May have to go straight to the Lorna’s Laces for that, which I think is what you were using when I realized this was the perfect green for me.

    Okay, those are great pictures.

    And while I always thought the stitch pattern was pretty, the first picture FINALLY makes it clear to me WHY this is a “melon” scarf πŸ™‚ It makes little oblong shapes in crumple form!

    I’m jealous. I love your camera (and the shawl of course). Mine won’t even turn on for me right now and yours captures every yummy detail of your knitting project.

    I just love your site, so talented and interesting. You’ve inspired me to knit my first pair of socks. What is your favorite sock yarns? I trust your opinion and don’t want to end up with a yarn that pills, loses its shape, or just isn’t comfortable to wear. Love your scarf and that color is beautiful it has such a sheen to it. Thanks for all that you share, this is the best site I visit.

    Beautiful. The candid shots show it off wonderfully.

    I have been pouring over Victorian Lace Today, dreaming of January, when I will once again have the time to knit as I please.
