Nanna says some colours are really tricky to photograph – especially if they’re blue hues.
Haha, Nanna says it’s enough to make you wanna cry, the way the camera turns pink things red or orange but not bright dark pink like the real wool she was knitting with.
She says the wool of the scarf she’s made for “Operation Brighten” (we told you about that last time) is a bright raspberry pink.
Last year when we were staying at Nanna’s house, before we moved to South Korea, there was a raspberry bush in the orchard; that’s what they call down the back where all the fruit trees are. Late one night, Granddad heard a noise at the back door. When he went to see what it was, there was Big Brother coming inside again… with red on his mouth.
”Nanna was asleep,” said Big Brother, “so I went in the garden and ate some raspberries!”
Nanna and Granddad thought it was very funny. But after that, the back door was locked very tight.Nanna says NONE of these photos show the tricky rascal raspberry colour of the wool, but you can see the plan scarf at the top of this post, and how she decorated it with scrumbles and flowers.
