this last summer the call of my new camera and flickr was stronger than my blog. i was taking a picture a day, photoshopping until the wee hours and posting and commenting like a fiend! something had to give and we all know its not ever going to be the knitting…… i do love photography and i do love the flickr community but the holidays began to approach and that too fell by the wayside. i’d love to say that i would stay up all night to get all my hobbies in each day but, you know, i really do love my sleep. now that the holidays are over and i have more time maybe i can balance things a bit better….
this picture of street vendor ties was taken during a FANTASTIC trip to new jersey to visit lovely friends that we had not seen in 11 years. the last time we had been to ny henry was 1, riley was 6 and ruby was 9! now families have children in college and high school and henry is a middle schooler–yikes! anyway, it was a fabulous time and i got tons of wonderful pictures and i’ll be processing them and posting them as i can (along with knitting content and pics of course!)
when we went into manhattan i had to visit purl soho, of course, and i picked up some blue sky alpacas yarn that i’m dying to turn into, what else? wristwarmers! i also picked up some cascade 128 which is surprisingly lovely to work with! i made a chunky cabled hat that turned out amazingly soft and beautiful. alas, i have no pictures of it….
i will be posting some pictures of my new knitting addiction: the earflap hat with cascade 220.
whew! that’s a lot to say when i haven’t said much in awhile. more will come. and thank you for your kind words and encouragement. thank you thank you.
its good to be back.
