Today I decided to make a light box. I found a great tutorial on the web here, and I thought, it can't be that hard, can it??
A small nervous breakdown, a lot of mess on the floor and some small stanley knife cuts on my hands (oh, and a really lot of fuckin swearing), and ta da.......
Hmmm, mine doesn't look that like theirs, does it? Do you especially like the 100 watt bulb in the 40 watt max lamp, balancing precariously on the top of the overlarge and spindly box? Crap.
I took these for you. I'm knitting this
for my second to smallest niece. It's a Debbie Bliss pattern. A bit boring to knit, lots of stocking stitch. I have to intermingle it with the chevron scarf for a bit of sanity.
If you want to see why I'm disappointed with my light box, go to Vanessa's blog, Coloursknits or Black Dog Knits. Now they're pictures I'd like to be able to take.
Instead, look at my effort.
No, don't feel sorry for me.
I'm blaming the camera I use.
It's obviously shit.
