There is an easy answer for Mom's question. I don't post pictures of my FO's that are knit myself because I have no one to photograph them for me.
Here is a photo our baby sitter took of Paul and I last week. I wanted to show you all my pretty dress, that looked really great on. The kids hopped in the photo, the baby sitter was game to take the picture, but you can see how great we look. (NOT)
In fact, I look strained. I look like a crazy mom, trying to out the door on time and before a kid spill spaghetti sauce down the front of my dress. Paul looks equally pained, like he is wondering how many pairs of shoes I am going to try on before we get out the door.
Not a pretty photo is it?
Here is another prime example. I got my haircut last Tuesday and came home and took these photos. Trust me again, it is a great haircut. See the way my bangs appear crooked in the photo, they are not. See the weird look in my eye, I look stern and icky. It seems to be very difficult to photograph oneself in the mirror.
The back photo is no better. Honestly it's a good cut. It is an A line, but not crooked in the back as it appears in the photo below. Maybe I need to see my chiropractor.
Paul is not interested in taking a few pictures of me so I can post my modeled knits on my blog. He will take to bad pictures (with my head cut off or something) and will roll his eyes and complain if I ask him to take another. "This one is fine!" he says.
I don't want "fine" I want a good picture of my FO. So you see them on the living room floor, or draped over the arm of the couch.
