ball of yarn

I get a lot of questions about using this image (it really was a fluke that it came out so well, the very well lit window should take some of the credit!). Please see this page to tell you what you can do with this image: Basically, like all of my photos, it's available to use non-commercially as long as you don't change it and you credit me. Please ask if you have any further questions though. I'm not a professional photographer but I'm very flattered that this image has become very popular.


Finally decided on this ball of yarn for January's Monthly Scavenger Hunt. it's Adriafil Globe.

    Hi ! Can I use this picture ? I want to design a logo. It's lovely.
  • Katherine 6y

    Thank you, could you please tell me what the logo is going to be used for?
  • Leo Wang 6y

    I want to design a logo and put on a T-shirt, Maybe put on some jingle on your picture.
  • Leo Wang 6y

    I mean slogan~not jingle.

    I'm afraid it's not licensed for any changes, see this for what you can do:
  • pyr8kat 6y

    Hi. I read through the license on using this image, but I'm not entirely certain how it applies to my request. So, if you wouldn't mind answering yet another question about using the image...
    I would like to use the photo as the front of round business cards and tags, with my contact info on the back. There would be no writing on the image itself. I would use these cards/tags at local farmers' markets, craft fairs, etc. Thank you!
