scarf series II sneak peek

Posted by on February 5, 2009 in knit, photograph | 2 comments

I still have a ways to go on this scarf, but I think it's pretty, so I wanted to show it off even though it's not done. I love the asymmetry of it. The pattern is the Juliet scarf from  Knitting Little Luxuries. I've been knitting in little blocks of time here and there, and it's steadily growing.


Those little blocks of time are like tonight, after a nearly two hour drive home because it started raining, and a quick change into pj's and hopping into bed to catch up on some favorite shows online. Heavenly!


Also, you may have noticed that my photos are quite bright, despite the fact that it is 10 pm. I owe this amazing display of light all to my new little friend, the Nikon SB-400 Speedlight. I bounced the flash off the ceiling for these two pictures, nothing more complicated then that. I feel like I've opened a whole new world for photography in the evenings after work with this handy little tool.


  1. Gah…I’ve been drooling all over that book at our local knitting store. But I’m still working on my project from “Boutique Knits.” “KLL” is next up on my wish list.

  2. Hey there! I’ve been wanting to tell you this story forever, but there’s never a minute to spare. When I was 7,8 I guess, my neighbors who were very “different” from what I was familiar with, took me into their home and made me the third wheel. They made their own bread, granola, honey, went camping, fishing, etc. All that stuff that my own family didn’t do. They decided that they wanted to try chickens. So, we cleared out the shed, built some coops, and a pen, and went to buy Rhode Island Reds! The first batch went into an incubator, but the second batch hatched while they were away and I was “chicken sitting”. I had the BEST 8 hours sitting in the hay, hearing peck peck peck with my overalls on, and books, and quiet and just waiting to get a glimpse of them. It was amazing.
    My parents had to pull me out of there with flashlights, but I couldn’t wait to go back in the morning and voila…actual chicks! Incredible.
    Eventually they moved to Vermont to have a christmas tree farm, but those chickens were part mine, and I have amazing memories of them!

say something nice...
