My old friend Daren is a professional photographer. He returned from a few years in Thailand last spring just about the same time that I finished my pattern for the Topsy Turvey Werewolf. We made a trade (a photoshoot for a home cooked steak dinner) which turned out so well that I talked him into another shoot for the Recess for Grownups pattern. This time I promised him a hand knit.
Everything in the resulting project was a collaboration between me and him. He wanted orange and gray, cables, and earflaps. It was fun to have a little bit of someone else’s brain in this project to step outside what I’d normally think of. I love the end result!
On the photoshoot for this hat, we both laughed at the idea of a photoshoot for a new pattern that resulted from payment for another photoshoot. Perhaps the next thing I knit for him will end up as a pattern too. Stay tuned…
