A Month of Craft Photos: Days 2 - 7

You can find Day 1 in its own post here.

Day 2: My favorite drink. That's home-brewed blood orange hefeweizen in that thrift-store mug. Oh yes.

Day 3: Something new--a knitting loom.

Day 4: Inspiration. I love raw materials, notions, and supplies. Too often I get so overwhelmed by what they could be that they never actually become anything. But I'm working on that.

Day 5: Craft envy. 'Nuff said.

Day 6: My feet. I wish the argyle socks were hand-knit, but no...they're from Target.
Day 7: Traditional. A thread crochet bedspread made by my grandmother. It's huge (covers a full-sized bed) and beautiful.

Month of Craft Photos: Day 1, a WIP

I first saw the "Month of Craft Photos" challenge at Untangling Knots last month, but by then the month was nearly over and I thought I'd lost my chance. Luckily, it's happening again--there's a Flickr group and everything, so it must be official!

In celebration of my newly cleaned-off, far more photogenic workspace, and in an effort to take better photos and post more, I'm jumping in.

Here's day 1, a work in progress:

A white and aqua potholder? NO WAY.
 After today, I'll post these in a once-weekly "digest" rather than one by one each day, but I wanted to kick things off on the right note. (Also, I think I'm already a day behind, but the once-a-week schedule will fix that too. Onward!)
