FO Friday: Funny Faces

posted in: FO friday, photo shoot, photography | 6

I made a super simple crochet necklace this week. Single crochet, 28 gauge wire, beads, and a few findings is all that was required. The whole project took a couple of hours, spread out over the course of the week. Then last night Brian and I tried to take photos of this necklace.

But some days, taking a decent photo is harder than it sounds. Turns out handing your husband a camera and putting on lipstick doesn’t turn him into a photographer any better than it turns you into a model.

Also, here’s a pro tip. Make sure your shirt isn’t on backwards. Yup, in these two photos you can tell my shirt is on backwards. OOPS.

Ok, let’s try this again! Shirt is on correctly. I can smile like I’m not crazy…right?crochet silver necklace by Mari Knits


Nope. Turns out that’s not an option today. Also what’s up with my shirt? Clearly I’m having wardrobe issues.

This is when I decided to give up. It’s just a finished project photo. I’m not trying to sell the pattern, so screw it!

But hey, I finished it! That counts for something, right?

    You’re too hard on yourself! The pictures are great and the necklace looks awesome.

    Love the photos! You might not think they work, but with your descriptions they sure do. I can’t wait to see the tutorial. I crocheted for about five minutes a few years ago but I think I could figure out the single chain again.
