Man, textile photography is fun stuff, especially in natural light. These are raw images, and of the three frames that I shot, all three turned out good (I think) in the different angles and foci that I was after. They'd look even cooler if I pulled some mid-tones and played with contrast in photoshop, but I am getting to where I hate the over-stylized shots that a lot of photographers are displaying... I like natural. So, they stay raw.
This EOS T3 is the best thing I've ever invested in.
I like Schacht shuttles. I've made a few of my own, and they just aren't as nice.
And string heddles are the bees knees, dude!
The next project is a SonCroft Dunface tartan I designed to feature the range of colors in my Shetland flock. I think the coarser fleeces would be perfect for a nice, tight tweed.
We've got a HUGE stash of hand-painted and natural colored Shetland, Bluefaced Leicester, Mule, Merino and Shetland/Baby Llama blends (from my guardians' crias) yarns and roving going to the Meeker Sheepdog Trials- all home-grown and processed in our mill. Come see us and replenish your knitting stash!
