Raverly and Photographer’s Workshop
Raverly и воркшоп по фотографии
Last friday was the Raverly day for me. As I found there a nice pattern to knit a cardigan for Marge, I decided that it’s time to acknowledge and get accustomed to this huge resource. I spent a few hours organising my stash there, adding my newly bought skeins and starting a new project. And it really finally kicked me in! I was absolutely delighted by the yarn database that knows even the yarns I bought in a local shop here in Riga. Moreover, I got a nice side effect from this — my knowledge base about yarns grew a lot as a result. Now I know what does ply number mean and how to measure wpi (wraps per inch). Also I’ve become a bit more competent in yarn weights and it’s all in one day! It’s a really cool place for knitters, crocheters and other yarn crafts lovers.
Marge’s cardigan has almost been knitted. I wouldn’t normally choose such a big (as for a non-knitter) project for me, but all of the raverly inspiration did the job! I took a lot of pictures during the process in a case I would like to repeat the success, what can be seen on my raverly profile here.
There is one more thing that makes me very happy this week — Karen’s Russell Photographers’ Workshop has started yesterday and I’m in (as auditing student though)! See the banner on the right panel? I like a lot what’s happening there so far. I’m planning to be committed to the course as much as I can with a little baby in one hand and hoping to get a lot from there as a photographer. I feel like my dreams are coming true! And here is what past students say about this workshop!
