Today I was going to share a photo of my latest crochet hat but it caused a bit of a stir on Facebook yesterday. I’ll explain more later but first I want to show you the pink sky we saw this morning. Maybe not that special but my Little Man seemed impressed so I took a photo. My Mom used to say, Pink Sky in the morning, Shepherd’s warning. (Red sky at night Shepherd’s delight.) It was a weather indicator, if it was red at night the next day would be fine (for grazing sheep) if it was pink in the morning the weather would not be so nice. It’s raining now.
The Crochet Hat
I took a photo of my latest crochet hat on the table in natural light. I thought it looked good so I posted it on Facebook. A local friend joked it would look better in blue and white. I live in Birmingham and the two main football teams are Aston Villa, claret and blue, and Birmingham City, blue and white. He had obviously thought my hat was claret and blue. I’d not even noticed! The hat is in fact cinnamon and grey, so I took another photo in a different light. Here is the same hat photographed in different lights, no filters.
It’s certainly made me think twice about taking photgraphs for my Etsy shop. I would hate to think that someone was expecting a colour that was different to the one they’d ordered from my pictures.
Anyway, the correct colour is the one on the left cinnamon and grey, and it’s a kid’s sized hat (age 5 to 10) I’ll be putting it in my shop soon. I’m already working on my next hat which is a different pattern and very different colours.
