Baktus: Done

One of my #stashbustarmy projects is complete!  I have posted a few photographs below.

I am still struggling with photographing my handmade items – I just cannot seem to get the light as I want it and they just aren’t quite looking how I want them to.  Is there anyone out there who could offer me some advice on my photography or point me in the right direction to some resources that could help?!  Thanks in advance.

For those of you not familiar with Baktus it is possibly the easiest pattern in the world (aside from a straight garter stitch scarf) as it is just a shallow triangle.  You weigh your skein of yarn and knit half of the triangle, starting with a few stitches and increasing every 4 rows, stopping when you have exactly half of the yarn left.  You then start decreasing to knit the other half of the triangle.  Simple, but really effective when you use a beautiful yarn.  Perfect ‘TV knitting’.

So without further ado, I give you Baktus in Noro Silk Garden Sock…

PS The iMake button (made by Remember Wynn) is supposed to be a label.  It is just tied on so can be removed by the wearer.  I am not keen on the labels you sew in to garments as I find they irritate me.
