I love this time of year, the pale pink petals from cherry and plum trees shiver on branches and flutter on the wind. Usually against an overcast sky.
Every year I promise myself I’m going to go out and take pictures with the Nikon and it never happens, following the Japanese tradition of Hanami, sakura (cherry blossom) blossom viewing*. Still hasn’t. Though, I almost achieved my goal with my cell phone:
Admittedly, that’s after some serious photo editing. Cell camera photos never look as good as we’d hope.
Anyway. Maybe next time!
In other news, I continue to wage war on my pile of uncompleted designs. The big hold up is the charts and exporting the legend in a sensible manner. I use KnitVisualizer and invariably spend hours upon hours reformatting the legend (and sometimes the charts) with Photoshop, so they’re all consistent. Does anyone out there have a better way? So far, no one’s come forth. I wish I knew a programmer I could bribe to create a more intuitive and flexible charting program :(
Well, maybe next time I’ll have some finished patterns to share. Getting closer!
*Doesn’t that just sound like a wonderful way to spend a spring day? (Provided it isn’t pouring down rain, of course!)
