day 3 A New Hobby

I don't know yet if this will turn into anything, but I learned the beginning of crocheting today!
One of my Student Council kids stayed after school and showed me.  She is good at all things sewing and was a great teacher.  I'm not sure if I was a great student- I felt very clumsy trying to hold everything at once. 
Anyway, this is how far I got- the photo for day 3.  Not very far, I know, but I told her I would practice a little more tonight and try to have a few rows to show her tomorrow.  Wish me luck.
EXIF info: 
Canon T2i
Tokina macro lens 100 mm f 2.8
1/50 sec   ISO 3200

 I think this is a fairly decent picture, not one of my favorites though.
What I could have done differently: I think this picture is a little too bright/blown out.  I should have brought the ISO down a little bit or upped the shutter speed to try and capture more detail.  I also wish I would have used a smaller aperture so that all of the crochet chain was all in focus and not just primarily the numbers on the crochet hook. 

I may retry a similar shot to try and get it a little better.
  I'm having great fun at this so far.  I know it's only day 3, but I am thinking all day about what I'm going to shoot that night and it's making me get excited about getting the camera out and actually trying some shot I wouldn't have done before.


  1. Hey friend! Fun blog. I want in on this little project of yours and Mendy!

  2. Cool- join in-1 photo a day, every day for 365 days. Comment on what you like/don't like about it and the way you took it (exif info) She has a really cool list of ideas she can send you if you want.

  3. Fun hobby...I tried to learn once never learned to do the second row and ended up with a long long string. I'm putting in my order for a scarf!


  4. I'm glad you're having fun with it! I can teach you to knit :)

    Joi - Jump in! I can send you the list. Maybe, I'll get around to posting it, one day :)
