I’m sad to say there’s no Eye Candy this week. But! I have a small rant–that’s just as good, right?
This photo is from the latest Cooking Light. Unfortunately, clicking on it isn’t going to get it much bigger or afford much more clarity. But if you can make it out you’ll see, or you can just trust me, that whatever this woman is doing is not knitting. That’s why I’m calling it “knitting” in the subject.
She’s happily wrapping the yarn from the ball using her right hand, which would be fine, except she’s wrapping it around the left needle, and the two needles aren’t doing anything with each other. so basically she’s just in the middle of a row wrapping yarn willy-nilly around the wrong needle! And what is up with all the balls of yarn that seem to be leading to the work? I’m surprised that no one at the shoot knew how to knit–who provided the cast-on? The stylist’s friend, who did it as a favor?
I know it’s at its heart a cooking magazine, so I can’t expect too much when they delve into other things, but just a little attempt at accuracy? I haven’t even read past this page, so I don’t know what it tries to say, if anything, about knitting. But phooey on them, I say.
