I mean, have you ever really, like, looked at your hands?

I can conclusively tell you, after spending hours not long ago shooting reference photos, that hands look completely crazy.

Hands look CRAZY

“Cool, that looks like knitting,” you think, and then you open Lightroom and it’s all weird foreshortened thumbs everywhere that make your knitting look like a fistful of earthworms getting into a fight under a blanket over a particularly fierce round of cat’s cradle.

It’s all for a good cause, though: My Double Dutch hat pattern is back in my hands and I’m going to redesign it so I can self-publish it. It had a great run at Bella Knitting, and I’m all excited about a chance to get my feet wet with design software and photography for it and a couple other patterns that are about ready for testing.
