A is for Asparagus

I’ve joined the 2006 Alphabet-Along, hosted by Anne. This is my first installment. Here’s a little background. When I was in college, studying photography, I created an alphabet book as senior project. All the images were created by placing the items on a flatbed scanner. It was a lot of fun to make, and I always dreamed of seeing it bound in actual book form. Ten years ago, it was prohibitively expensive for a college student to get 26 decent digital prints, much less self-publish a book. Now, with all the great products that places like Shutterfly available, it’s well within reach.

When I left school with my BFA, I was a bit… disillusioned, shall we say, with the experience, and with photography by extension. I’ve struggled since then to get back to the pure joy that photography was for me when I was younger. In the last few months, I’ve finally been approaching that again, and this blog has been both a catalyst and an outlet for my getting back to working regularly. When I came across the ABC-along, it struck a chord with me, and seemed a good way for me to get this alphabet book together.

So I guess that leaves one more thing: how did I come across this knitting blog? Well, along with photography, I also knit, make quilts, and do all sorts of other fiber-related and crafty things. I’ve been a knitblog lurker for quite a while now.

I’m looking forward to seeing what the other members come up with, and with posting the rest of my letters!
