Five tips for a better photographIf you intend to sell the products you’ve crafted, taking a good photo is imperative. There are so many tips and resources out there that can teach you how to do it! In my research I’ve stumbled upon an article written by a knitter and decided to translate it for my fellow Romanians who are interested in taking better photos of their work. You can see the article in English and Romanian here.

Tutorial – Knit A Fur Headband – Knitting or crocheting with fur is a new thing for me but I love it! I had no idea that you can put fur as a string to use it for knitting but I recently knitted a rabbit fur headband using a kit that I bought at Vogue Knitting Live in New York (video coverage of the NY conference is on my YouTube channel).

One of the best yarn stores in Toronto – Do you like visiting yarn shops? I once read that ‘life is too short to knit with cheap yarn’ and ever since I am not buying any more acrylic yarns. I’m also thinking about bio-degradable string and acrylic is not one of them, plus I want to support local yarn shops. I love to try new yarns, different textures so I make a point of visiting every yarn store in Toronto, where I live. This past month I went to Eweknit & Fabric. Works. You can see a little video here.
