Friday Photos

I got a new camera lens for my birthday last Sunday and have been playing around with it quite a bit. I took my camera with me everywhere today with the idea that at the day's end I'd post some of the shots. I didn't really venture anywhere particularly exciting, but these photos are from both inside and outside my house as well as around town. I also thought I'd post them in chronological order. That's me. Always having to organize things to fit in with my personal sense of logic.

New knitting. It's not for me though it is out of Inspired Cable Knits. In all honesty, I'm not a big fan of the patterns in this book, but the friend I'm making the sweater for chose the pattern. I do love the Debbie Bliss yarn she picked out, so all's well.
She doesn't have something in her eye. She's doing an imitation of the face I make when I look through my view finder.


Rachel and her new socks. Sadly, not handmade, but, in this house where 4 out of the 5 people wear the same size socks having new ones that are definitively your own is something to cheer about.American Beauty Berry. A top ten native Texas plant. It grows well in the shade, has beautifully arched branches, and produces these amazingly colorful berries which attract and feed local birds. What more could you ask for?

The answer to the question, "Why do you want a zoom lens?"

Oh Malka, your sweater looks great! I love the sweaters in that book. I went to a little class by Fiona Ellis last spring and I loved it. She had most of the sweaters from the book there for us to see. It was fun to be able to pass them around and feel the cables!

Malka, I love your pics. Now I want a zoom lens, too. It's so cool to see some Southwestern flora!
