Photo Sharing

Isn't this tomato gorgeous? Stef took a couple of photos in the garden before we left last week and I wanted to share a few.

She does some good things with my camera that I don't seem to be able to accomplish, like this beautiful macro shot.

Steve planted sunflowers this year and I love them.

Here's one of the few pictures I took on vacation. For some reason, I just didn't take too many this year, maybe because the beach photos always look the same. This is one taken in early evening.

And this one in the glare of the day.

I started and finished a basic baby boy hat for my niece to take to a friend of hers.

And this is the market bag I'm working on, although it's slow going on size 15 needles cause my hands hurt if I spend much time on it. Love the colors though.

Knitting Addiction has started carrying Classic Elite yarn, so I picked up a skein of soft yellow,

and one of gray. At $11 for almost 500 yards, I think it's a great deal. I'm thinking shawlette or scarf, or maybe one of each. Easy on the hands for sure.

This stuff I bought because of the shop sample. It's a Blanket Buddy, made from 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders. So, so soft.

And I bought these two skeins on impulse, but the little bit of knitting I tried with it didn't make me happy. I hope to find something to make with it but I'm not sure just yet. Exactly the type of purchase I don't need to make, eh?

And for something completely random, this is adorable and it seems that this style of t-shirt is so popular right now!
Now back to cleaning up the house (although since Steve did a fabulous job while I was gone, I'm mostly puttering) and repacking for my trip to Blacksburg tomorrow. But first, a little nap.


  1. I love all the yarn, Rose. The market bag looks beautiful. I'm glad you had a good trip.

    Stef's photos? Stunning.

  2. that daytime beach photo made me moan... so gorgeous!

  3. Your beach shot is lovely...I know what you mean about scenery. It's hard to make it look as good in a photo as it does to your eye.
    I like the soft blankie yarn. And the market bag colors are pretty. Have fun on your next adventure.

  4. That market bag is gorgeous!!
