there is always something new to try.
part of what i get to do for ‘artistic differences’
is being involved in styling and choosing the outfits for the photo shoot.
that gives me an excuse (ha! thrift stores never fail to inspire me!)
to jog on over to the local 2nd hand shops
every couple weeks
armed with my loose leaf ring full
of little knotted bundles of all the yarns involved.
there are people who would see something and know
(just know) if the colors worked,
but i am not even close to being one of them.
instead, i carry the little snap ring around in my pocket
to be sure that things will go well when they’re matched up,
but not too well. it’s not
classically clean or preppy or too overly pulled together that i’m aiming for…
now, i’m not ready to reveal the theme just yet.
(a girl’s got to hold back and have a little mystery when she can.)
i will say this though: i’m having such a good time sussing out
how the personality of the clothes
will breathe extra life and skads of character into the knitwear.
i haven’t done anything like this
since i was ‘costume director’ for a play my junior yr of high school.
it was fun then. still, i’m pretty sure it feels like even more fun now.
you gotta love that.
i’m really not ready to tell,
but to not leave you hanging completely, here’s a quick peek
at my favorite finds from this morning’s jaunt.
