Photography Website!

Monday, 18 May 2015
Hi all, 

I thought I'd drop by and show you guys my new shiny-ish photography website! 

So if you live in Vancouver B.C (or somewhere close to it!) you can hire me as a photographer! I even have pricing on there (which is always flexible) around photographing knitwear! 

From the site: 

"Softsweater's Special Knitwear Photography Sessions

Have a couple of knitwear designs you want to publish and need photos that will help your pattern make it up onto the front page ofRavelry?
Just interested in having some amazing photos to go onto your project page for a shawl you've knit that you're feeling proud of? These are the deals for you. Every single knitwear pattern which has featured my photographs has made it up to the front page of Hot Right Now on That's 50+ patterns. Tooting my own horn right here.

45 minute session + 45 minute post processing
You bring one or two knitted items. You can be the model or bring a model, or we can shoot them without a model. Great for handspun yarn or etsy items. 10 - 20 shots
Sliding scale $50 - $150

60 minute session + 60 mintues post processing
You bring three to five knitted items. You can be the model or you can bring a model or we can shoot them without a model. 10 - 20 shots
Sliding scale $100 - $250"

Happy knitting everyone! 

Some people must have been pretty seriously cold...

I don't keep very good track of my stats on Ravelry. It's cool, when you make a pro account they keep track on unique downloads and sales and all that fun statistical stuff. I almost completely ignore it for the most part. It's nice to see that people are downloading my patterns, but I don't really know who is downloading my patterns so that number doesn't really mean much to me.

But then I was looking through and noticed this:

Those are my statistics for The Blanket For Seriously Cold People from December and Janurary! Those are unique downloads (so from different IP addresses/different computers!) Those are a lot of downloads! Especially for a pattern I barely think about. It was published such a long time ago, and really it's just a giant ribbed blanket.

Anyway, I was feeling pretty smug. Thanks everyone who decided to knit that blanket! Or any of my patterns for that matter. You're all awesome.


Happy knitting everyone! 

German translations for patterns - coming soon!

Friday, 8 May 2015
Hey everyone!

So I'm dating a German guy.  

This is great because it means we will slowly be translating my patterns over into German!

I have resisted doing translations before because I'm always worried that my tone will be lost in the translation. Dating the fella who is going to be doing the translating is alleviating my fears around that, that's for sure. I'm like "can you make it sarcastic-er?" he's like "yeah, whatever" It's great. It's been a great evening over here.

Hope you're all enjoying whatever project it is you're working on! For me I'm knitting another shawl (surprise surprise). I've been trying to update all my patterns this summer. So expect new photos for a couple of my old patterns.

I'll leave you with a dorky photo Thomas took of me totally thrilled to be on a tiny boat at Granville Island. I'm like a happy cat in this photo, I love it. 

Happy knitting everyone!
