of photo shoots and bright hats

Just got back from a trip back to ye olde country, aka Oklahoma. My goal now is to start promoting the heck out of my etsy shop!

Since my last post, I have added hats to my lineup. I've had these "in stock" for quite a while but finding a time to get the photos I wanted of them proved to be a major obstacle; but after almost a month of attempts, my best friend Anne and I managed to find the perfect afternoon in Dupont Circle to do a photo shoot. If I look way cooler than I am, it's because the wonderful Aaron is a very talented photographer (and took over 400 pictures just to make sure he got some decent ones.) I love how the hats look on Anne, with that thick long hair of hers, and her dark features. Here is a sample, more at the link above:

Oh, how I love the greens in this photo:

The photo shoot was way more fun with a friend helping.

Other than that, summer is in full swing, which means I'm still experimenting with ways to create crocheted items, typically reserved for chillier months, into fashionable designs for warm (if you're a DC resident, read: miserable) days. I think I've hit upon something I really like, so stay tuned :)
