we are wanting to a Virtual knit night there is a thread with info for Date/Time.

Got accepted to a Meditation retreat: Vispassana ( also called Insight Meditation Movement ) and i am excited.. 10 days of silence and reflection.
vipassana means insight into the true nature of reality, mindfulness of breathing which are said to lead to insight.The term vipassana has gained popularity due to the influence of the Vipassana movement which started in the 1950’s in Burma, although this influence is especially discerneable in the use of mindfulness as a practice to handle emotions.
I am going to be gone from Jun4- 15th by the time you see this video I will be there. No phone, no ipad or reading or anything distracting.  Hmm wonder if i can knit. I will be bringing for the trip up north  which will take a few hours  to get to the retreats.

Episode 3: ” Fashionably Inspired “

JOIN:  Ravelry group : TheArtsyKnitterPodcast

Mental Escapades:: Shame.. but Good
You do not have to be a Top model to Rock solid personal style..
this take me right into my first wippie…
The Yarnista is a Knitting Rock star and if you didn’t realize it then Just Check out Vogue Knitting recent article on her. She is a teacher and she still rocks serious Fashion… This will not be the last time i speak about her just so you know… !LOL

Hollyknits.com :She blog post on ” the Knitter Keepsake” rightly shamed me and then made me pull up my knitter’s socks .. shooting my project with pride! then effort we are putting to selecting the best yarns and technique yet we don’t share images with other at their very best!
Lord Forgive me! Yarnista Forgive me!

So I start with sharing
Artsy Tip 1:: find an area where you with your Knitted object is facing the natural light. sometimes a Store window is a great place to put a hat down and photograph it.

Artsy Tip 2 :: don’t have your Bag on your shoulder blocking your garment/sweater ..it look cluttered . Accessories are not bad but if they don’t compliment the Image via color or texture remove it and keep it Clean. No clutter on the table unless it make sense for the knitted item ie. Purse and you have a few things that would go inside as props

Artsy Tip3:: white or subtle Backgrounds or patterned backgrounds are best ..even though those rules can be broken you don’t want the Background to take away or distract the viewer from looking at your Sweater.
