What materials did you use? 'Kira Kira Cotton' purchased at Seria 100 yen shop. cotton 97%, polyester 3% worked on 4 mm needles. The yarn is a la-me (has a shiny blending filament running through it). A few shots I took showed a bit of sparkle, but it was hard for me to get a composition I liked and show any sparkle. If anyone has tips on how to photograph yarns/fabrics with blending filament, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you!

What are you most proud of? I made a goal that I would photograph and catalog all of the homework for this class, and that I would photograph it to the best of my ability (even though I know next to nothing about the camera, and keep having to look things up in the Japanese manual). I'm pleased that I'm keeping that promise to myself so far and I like the dramatic improvement in my shots with the shift in my thinking.

Shot 2c was inspired by classmate ZoeOB's photo of her snowflake.

I see a bit of sparkle, Teresa! Very nice.

Thank you, Barbism :) It is showing a little - how lucky! Maybe it's a what the eye/camera lens actually sees in an instant vs. what the brain does with the fabric in motion seeing reflections off of many more points?
