I found the camera, and did drive down 95 yesterday, but chickened out when it came to pulling over and taking the picture. I got this on through the passenger side of the car while driving down route 1, though:
Of course, as soon as I uploaded it to Flickr I found a better one of the same thing, actually, a whole bunch of them. Notice how well KimberlyFaye composed the picture. I’d be jealous if I hadn’t taken mine while driving by. I think I did reasonably well, considering. I guess rule #1 for take better pictures is stop the car? Meh, I’m not unhappy with it.
…and speaking of knitting, today’s blog contest is brought to you by ArizonaKnitter, who’s giving away the Vogue Lace Knitting Stictionary. Check it out!
I’ve been working on Haruni, and am really pleased with the progress. I followed a tip from Ravelry, and threaded my lifeline through the hole in my KnitPicks interchangeables (it’s there to tighten the tip with). This brings it through easily and without worrying about skipping a stitch, and it doesn’t slow down the knitting either. The downside is that I can’t use my ‘snag free’ stitch markers, there needs to be a break in the loop to free the lifeline with. Ah, well, it’s a learning experience anyway.
I keep taking pictures of the Haruni, hoping I can show how the lace pattern develops. I’m not really satisfied with what’s been coming through. But see if you can spot how the center of one ‘leaf’ leads to the next ‘stem’ and vice versa. Little, interlocking curves of stitches, making airy and dense sections which flow into each other. I’m really happy with it. As predicted, the mohair is growing on me as well.
