Today's Yarn Pr0n is Brought to You by the Letters "D" and "K"
Best friends are a great thing to have. You can go nearly 2 full months without seeing them, and when you finally do, you fall right back into the groove. Such was the case on Sunday when my best friend, D, came over to play. This is the friend that brought us the photos from C is for Cristi - of which one still stares at you from the upper right hand corner of this blog. She makes me look good. Heh. For a long time, I've been telling her that she needs to do the photography thing professionally. She's always taken fabulous photos. This year, she finally did it, and got herself some professional stuff. Camera, Lighting, Backdrop, the whole 9. I'm so proud of her. As her best friend, I am her guinea pig for figuring out lighting, settings on her camera, and just generally to practice on. She's always said I take pretty good pics of my yarn too. I knew she could do better. So I asked her to take pics for today's entry. She happily obliged. So this is what yarn pr0n looks like when taken by a professional. I did create a photo mosaic but the size that would fit on the blog was too small. So, I bring to you 7 pictures in their unfettered glory.
