Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on} The extended edition

KCCO - My Lina

As crazy as I am, I brought along my finished Lina on our Oregon City adventures Saturday in the hope of having Kevin take a couple of pictures of me wearing it. The sun has been bright and constantly present this past week making photography much more feasible, so it seemed like a good idea. Never mind the fact that I had a wool (winter!) hat on my head in 80 degree weather.

We found a shady spot and I had Kevin pose so I could adjust my camera settings and find the right light. I should add that these poses were all his idea (ahem)but he knows it makes me laugh. He said this will be my most popular post ever due to these pictures of him...
But back to my story. Once I had everything all set up we switched spots and he started taking pictures. I had no clue what to do or how to pose. I felt ridiculously silly. And I think this series of funny faces shows it!

I tried directing my photographer,

KCCO - funny face (where am I supposed to look?!)

and then kept repeating 'Where should I look? What should I do?' (Kevin calls this my bird face)

KCCO - My Lina

Um, maybe I should just look at Baby L?

KCCO-What are you doing Daddy?!

He was even wondering 'What in the world are you two doing?!'

Get the top of my head, that should work!

KCCO - a better model

Eh, I give up. Nara makes a better model anyways!

As for my knitting notes: I am not certain if I love this hat on me or not. I like the cabling on it and I love the yarn but I don't know that I can pull the style off. Something about the shape of it on my head... I don't know. I am wondering if it will be warm enough for winter, but that may just be due to using DK yarn. Maybe it could be a fall hat instead?
