Ready! Set! Camera! - 3KCBWDAY2

When I started Project: Stash a year ago, I knew that I wanted to share my knitting adventures in both words and pictures.  My very first photograph showed off a technique that I had just mastered: the brioche stitch. I was so proud of myself -- I had spent an entire weekend working out this stitch and when I finally managed to knit a whole scarf, Miranda happily modeled it for me.


If you've been following Project: Stash for a while, you know that Miranda is my trusty model. She's always willing and always cheerful. In looking back over the year, I can't get over how much she's grown and matured. It's been fun seeing her go from this:

They'll start asking to be paid soon, I know it!

  12. Your daughter is beautiful! Amazing what a difference a year makes. Her hair brings back memories. I had hair like that - then when I hit puberty....it turned to fizz! Never been the same since!
