sky & lake scarf - april


i've been knitting on my Sky & Lake Scarf now for about a month. And this is what it looks like now.

As you can see it has been rather gray lately. I've really enjoyed knitting this. As my header says I spend a lot of time living in my head. So consciously knitting 2 rows each day that look like the sky and lake is a really good thing for me. It is nice to get up from the computer and go sit by the window and pick up my knitting for a few minutes.

If you don't know what I am doing here is my first post where I explain conceptual knitting. See you next month. Oh and I am going to post this on Ravelry too.

photo friday


i take a lot of photos each week. Partly because I like to and partly because to get better at anything, to develop a good eye, you need to just do it to get better. I think I may start putting those up on Fridays. There may be a theme or it may be completely random. Copy to explain something or not. We shall see.

saturday sunrise


Need I say more?

I guess I will anyway. Until moving here I never noticed how fast the sunrise is. By the time I notice something spectacular get my camera and start shooting I can get about 50 shots and then it is an entirely different set of colors.

Still absolutely LOVE my Canon G12 PowerShot camera (more info below). It is the perfect point and shoot camera for me. Now if I actually learned how to use the camera who knows what shots I could get.
