I love taking photos, but my time is so limited that I never seem to get round to taking fabulously constructed shots with great lighting. Coupled with a daughter who will not sit still to take a sharp shot and a husband I never see during daylight hours, my model opportunities are often limited to desperate selfies! Honestly, most photos are taken on my couch at 11pm with my iPad before items get wrapped and shipped. Because of that, Instagram is my absolute best friend. I can share what I like there and it’s ok that my images aren’t professionally finished. Poor lighting isn’t the end of the world. I just try not to post blurred photos…
Here’s some of my latest creations that have only really made it as far as Instagram:
The pattern for this one is coming soon!

I've just finished making two of these hats and I'm so impressed with how they worked out! Coming up with the pattern to make it a good fit without losing the shape was a challenge, but I've cracked it!! Pattern coming soon… #crochethat #crochetporn #crochetaddict #haken #ireland #leprechaun #guinness #stpaddy
The pattern for this one is available to buy on Craftsy and Ravelry
Meanwhile, did you know that WordPress allows you to add Instagram images to posts by merely pasting the image link into the post/page? Looks fantastic and is interactive as well! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, it’s where I spend most of my time.
How do you tackle the time vs lighting vs model issues?
