Film at eleven (okay, 2:12)

Wrap your eyes around this:

And this:

And this:

Yes, that's right folks. We have knitting content! WOOHOO!!!

All hail the great husband (and thermostat manager.) Take a bow, honey:

He looks skeptical doesn't he? Perhaps he thinks I am no better at blogging than I am at indoor environment management?

At any rate, thanks for the camera. I feel like I have arrived! (You should have seen the look on the face of the Fry's Electronics salesman - and I use the word "man" loosely, more like salesteen - when I told him I needed a camera to take pictures of knitting.)

Note to Fry's management team: One shouldn't have to stand in front of a $3000 flat screen LCD television and say, "COOL!!!!" to get your attention. Those left waiting for a half hour in the digital camera aisle may not bring you much of a commission on this purchase, but if you treat them right, they'll come back when they are in the market for a $3000 flat screen LCD television.

Meet Kiri:

She's coming along nicely for being only a week old.
Pattern: Kiri
Yarn: Posh laceweight cashmere in Bronze

And this little beauty.

Wait a minute. What's that down in the corner? could it be my ill-behaved monkey? Wait your turn!

And a close up

See the ferns? They're waving in the woods.
Pattern : Wing o' the Moth by genius Anne of KnitSpot fame (I am not worthy...)
Yarn: Handmaiden Seasilk in Woodland.

I'm having a lot of fuzzys form on this project as I'm working on it, especially on the points formed on the backside before blocking. Anybody else experience this problem?

The monkey is now jumping around, demanding attention, getting himself into the picture any way he can.

Now look what you've done - gone and gotten yourself all tangled up!(Told you he was ill behaved.)

See what I mean about the vertical pooling? On the cuff, we have thin stripes; on the leg, not so much. Interesting how a pattern changes the way the color is perceived.

Monkey see. Monkey do. that's all!

Congrats on the new Camera!!! It's so nice to see your projects and I look forward to seeing many more!

Kristy said...

Wow, what interesting pooling on your Monkey! Have you decided what to do about it? I have a pair of socks that pooled vertically-- I really like them :)

ditto on the Congrats on the new camera! As you could tell from my blog, I'm a big fan of pictures...very visually oriented! With that said, I love your wraps in progress...the pattern and the yarn are very pretty!
