Rust


This is a multi exposure piece of all the pictures I took today.
I wish that I had painted it.

Tomorrow Gone?

Just one week past my last foliage shot and it looks like the last. The rusty last bits of leaves in the rain.

the misery continues.
These days, a woman of few words, I'll leave it at that.

Premie Hat Challenge

Bobbie and Duffy put together this Premie Hat Challenge thing and here they are. Each one a different size and color. Kinda cool. And here is our winner, Aimee and her daughter, Emily (a blur at most times..)
I like this one one based on and Elizabeth Zimmerman design because of the colors it really does look like and ice cream cone. Imagine wearing this at the hospital after just being born! Hmmmm. Could go either way because of your early design sense. Or, I suppose it could create an early design sense.

A new level of Greens



Some folks would not see both of these as green, but they really are (to me).

Knitting Through the Pain



A few days ago when I was still quite delirious I started to work on a scarf out of Blue Sky Alpaca/Silk. Beautiful stuff. Out of my luxury stash.

I spent a lot of time frogging until I got the hand of the pattern, but this is where I am now. I do love me those blues and greens....

Thoughts

For those of you sending caring thoughts my way these days, I really appreciate it.
I am still battling this awful set of illnessess and the crazies in my head are not really enjoying the fact that there is no distraction other than sleeping.
I can barely knit. I just keep falling asleep
As...I...am...now.

Trojan Bunny


Okay, first I should say that I am posting this while under the influence of strong painkillers. That said;


When Brahms was a kitten I found this wooden pull toy and just knew that it would appeal to her. It did and she dragged it around for years, making this cute sound with the squeeking wheels. (I eventually got her another real friend, Suki but I think she would have prefered the wooden version).


Now, both kits grown, this is where it sits and looks particularly good in the window I face as I type on my laptop.

Official Folliage Picture



One of the reasons I love this city apartment and I love Portland.

Symetrical Folliage



Strange too. And, it's outside the Smith+Hawken gardening shop.

And now thanks to Gary...

..I have some pictures of Knitcamp West---an intimate group of old and new pals getting together last weekend for some great shopping, knitting and some occasional crass jokes.

Nigel and Roger


Knitters photographing knitters! Duffy, Nigel and Jean





And, here I am knitting all bundled up because I'm always cold. This was at the start of the day at Powells.



Melissa has a heel!


Jean in lovely concentration.

I know what you're thinking...

Yes, I have not followed through on my promise of pictures of OFFF booty.
I tried. The sun was gone, I turned on all the lights and refused to turn on the flash (I hate the flash) and took some pictures. They stink. All but one and here it is. My mini Niddy Noddy:

So Sculptural in this dramatic light...
Now I know why people buy these. It's a must-have for sample skiens in workshops. Hmmm. As if I ever thought I'd go to a spinning workshop.
