Prepped

This weekend is the photoshoot for Curls 2.  This is ridiculously exciting, as I think all this gray is going to be amazingly fun to take photos of.  I’ve been doing that thing where I scurry around making sure I have everything I need for days now.  Of course I need all the curls themselves.

curls photo shootI store them on a dress form to keep them from getting wrinkled after they are blocked.  These are on Alethea’s companion, Verity.  You’ve not been properly introduced yet, but I’m sure we’ll fix that at some point.  Both ladies are coming with us for photos.

But in addition to the curls and dress forms, I also need to be sure to bring shawl pins, the camera (and all of its various accessories), a step stool, the knitwear care kit (crochet hook, darning needle, tiny scissors, safety pins, gleener), and of course snacks (because I go from peckish to cranky to despondent amazingly fast when not properly fed).  I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but that’s the bulk of it.

So if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take advantage of this perfect weather (mid 6os and overcast…in December, pretty much everything you could ask for) and take lots and lots of photos.
