Knit 1 drop 1

By helenlinda
Thanks for the comments on yesterdays images, I really appreciated them.
I continue to find a great source for photos in the process of clearing my parents home.
Amongst the many knitting needles that my Mum had kept, were a range of coloured plastic ones.
I've enjoyed taking some photos of them before I pass them on.
I have also enjoyed trying out some different effects.
Thanks for looking

I love the arrangement. How many cardigans and scarves did she once make for you with those, I wonder?

Takes me back... I never really had the patience for knitting but used to make an effort. My preference is for v2, it enhances the lines and slight curve of the needles.

These are all lovely, I can't express a preference. I have been swapping from version to version enjoying the changes made to the tiny highlights by your various manipulations.

Lovely pictures, I think that I prefer vers.1, mainly because of the fine detail shown. I shall have to practise some similar shots with my S9600, which I seem to have neglected lately.

A super take of my least favoured material--PLASTIC.You have made it look interesting here.And that is the original version too.Perhaps I should view it in a new light now.
