A lot of my job entails staging pretty pictures of yarn, which can be hard work! You see, center pull balls are wonderfully convenient for the knitter, but they aren't particularly photogenic, so I often end up skeining dozens and dozens of balls of yarn. This week I'm preparing to shoot some photos for web graphics. Luckily, Gloss (middle row) already comes in skeins, so my work there is done. I'm not so lucky with the Comfy (top) and Risata (bottom). So far I've got 3 skeins down and 21 more to go! I guess there could be worse jobs than twisting up yarn all day... ;)

I agree - the photo currently on the home page is gorgeous! Especially love the ball in the bottom left corner but the entire composition is exquisite. Makes me want to get my hands on that yarn and knit it up!

Melissa, job well done. When I opened up the website, it stopped me in my tracks and I actually clicked on every single yarn to see all the colours .... mission accomplished. And I noted this morning watching the Today show (I'm Canadian, but hey, I love Matt, too) that all the lovely ladies were wearing green. I guess green is the new black.

I did do that summer yarn photo. Thanks, Veelau! It will be in the summer Interweave Knits and Creative Knitting ads too.

Did you do the cool pic that shows off the summer yarns "Plan your escape"? That picture featuring the yarns is excellent.

I'll be interested to see how your dyeing comes out! I've never dyed cotton yarn before.

Actually, I wouldn't mind if more of your yarns came in skeins. I am thinking of dyeing some CotLin and/or Shine using fiber-reactive MX dyes, so I'll have to get out the niddy-noddy (that I made for a couple of bucks' worth of PVC pipe from Lowe's) and reel it out. However, I do see that it's more efficient for me to do that than for all of your other customers to have to use swifts and ball winders on everything they buy!

I wouldn't mind your job at all! If you need a break, I'll gladly style, stage, light, and shoot web pics in exchange for the yarn!
