    Ufo

    Made you look!

    This is the UnFinished Object kind of UFO, i.e. a knitting project I started six years ago and did not complete because I got distracted by a hundred other pretty things. Some projects just look better on the needles anyway. What do you think? I had some fun with curves. (Click to view as they look best against black and should be viewed separately from one another.)

    Version 1
    Ufo



    Version 2

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: Ufo

    You're one clever lady to come up with that intriguing title. Just kidding.

    I like the first one. The color looks more natural to me. It definitely is a nice subject of photography, more like an abstract art.

    Thank you, Jiro. I thought they looked kind of painterly, myself. It sure was fun playing with the colours.

    Abstract art, you say?

    Ufo

    Hand-dyed roving (Australian Polwarth, for the sheep-lovers in the crowd).

    I really like the first one, Janis! It's really gorgeous. I want to sink my hands into it and the colors do a person good.

    Do you blog, maybe? There is a serious contingent of knitters (especially in the UK) who have taken their skill with their needles to a super art - there's some really gorgeous stuff and gorgeous photos of it all, too. I'm going to go rummage around and see if I can come up with a link or two - it's so fun!

    okay! Here is one - I have NO idea what the men will think (you really might not want to look guys) but I love it!

    This one is cheery photography but she's really a crochet guru - you're a knitter - it's fun, though.

    Thanks for the links, Katy. Truth be told, the knitting was the thing that gave me the final push to pick up photography again, as I give most of it away and I wanted a kind of portfolio to give me some sense of accomplishment. When I saw on the online knitting forums how much better my photographs could be, I started to learn the editing functions on my little Powershot, and I was hooked.
