When I first sarted publishing my knitting designs, I strived to do everything myself. I sketched my design, ran the numbers, knit the sample twice, wrote the pattern, edited the pattern, took pictures of the sample, wrote marketing material, and promoted my design. I learned a lot. Over the years in an effort to focus on what I do best, such as coming up with new designs and writing patterns, I have learned to parcel out the tasks that I do not have a calling for. I now have a wonderful tech editor that I trust to fine-tune my patterns and catch any gross errors. This year, I finally admitted to myself that I will never produce professional quality photos. Below are my attempts to take photos of the baseball blanket.
I am actually proud of this photo but it focuses on Elly more than the blanket.
Now compare my photos with the ones taken by Nihart Photography.
I love this one with Elly in it. I plan to enlarge it and hang it in our living room.
Yes, I think all my future designs will be photographed by Nihart.

Those baseball rugs are so awesome.
Thank you so much! It was fun to design and knit.
