Camera play and yarn advice

Happy Monday readers!

Over the weekend I’ve dug out my camera and tried taking pictures using a few settings. I used my reef fish amigurumi (the one I tested for Starbeamer Patterns) and a few different backgrounds.

Which one do you prefer?

I also have some questions to ask you about buying yarn online. I have had an idea lately to design a shawl, but I can’t really find any yarn that would be good for it in local stores. So I wanted to order yarn online but I’m a bit afraid that I won’t like it once it arrives (I really like to squish and pat yarn before buying it). Do you guys have any suggestion of yarn that would be good for a shawl and that you have tested? I was thinking sports weight or 4ply, maybe cotton blend for a better stitch resolution?

I’d love to hear from you! Have a great week 😊

Butterfly fish pattern testing 

Hi guys! 

I am a bit late on my usual Friday post because my little brother arrived yesterday and  he will be staying for a week. So, I might not post much next week either about craft but I might share our adventures around Brisbane 🙂

Anyways, back to craft, I have decided to sign up to test patterns in ravelry and I’ve completed my first project, this adorable butterfly fish. 


The pattern was actually really good and there are 2 other colour patterns for them so I might make them as well. You will be able to find the pattern on ravelry here
