The Sock Summit is exactly two months away, and the dyeing will be in full swing starting next week. (First I need to finish painting my kitchen, but that's a whole 'nother story!)
I have about 30 colors that are going to be my staple for now, and then there are a bazillion pretties in between that are going to be part of an amazing, full rainbow of color by the time I am done. 600 skeins is the goal, and I am hoping for more if I can squeeze in some extra.
There will be photos up soon on a website, and to that end have been taking pictures.
That part is not going so well. I have a Canon Powershot A630, which has served me well, but seems to have been discontinued. If there is anyone out there that can give me some helpful hints and tips as to the best way to photograph yarn and get the color right, I'd appreciate it a lot!
Here are five examples; the original background was a white pillowcase. Most of them came out OK, but I have a lot of trouble with blues/purples/greens.
