With a photo shoot under my belt— 2 book projects, one complete the other a partial shoot—completed in a day and a half. downtown chicago is a great place for shooting knitwear. The activity, the art, the buildings, and Buckingham Fountain...(the Married with Children" fountain in the opening credits).
We hired 4 women from Factor Chicago, and had a great time working up and down michigan Avenue. If you ever wanted to model you should rethink, these women need to stand in the heat and look pretty no mattern what they are required to wear...we had sweaters coats and jackets...and a few accessories and thay needed to look great in every shot and did...BTW it was 4500 frames shot!
so in review of the trip,
Bought "From the Cauldron" yarn to make a sweater for myself...in reds and blacks. This yarn was my favorite thing from the Stitches show...and no wonder...
i just fell in love with everyone in the booth. Pretty edgy women—intelligent, witty, and totally fun...plus their work is stellar.
the yarn itself is a looooooonnng repeat which flows from red to black in only one repeat, and the other colorway has red and white that flows to black........i see a few more purchases from them in the future.
