30-Day Challenge:: In Praise of Stock Photos

...stock in the sense that I've had this photo for a while and just didn't post it. Along comes this morning when I realize that I have now missed 2 days in my 30-day challenge and, voila, stock photo becomes today's topic. I'm not berating myself though for lagging behind in my challenge. I do yoga and we are repeatedly told to have compassion on ourselves and I am a firm believer in self-directed compassion.
Anyway, this scarf, crafted out of bias cut strips is inspired by knitted scarves like this one. I think I've mentioned this before, but just in case, I'm often inspired by other textiles, but especially knits. This scarf was created as a magazine design, but, alas, did not make it in. No matter. I'll probably write up the pattern and sell it myself or add it to the classes I teach at Stitch Lab or both. For today, it definitely served its purpose: something to post about here in my little corner of the internet.

Ok have been following along for a few weeks on your blog. And I finally am noticing the titles of the 30-day challenge. I am sure if I looked I would figure out where that came from but I am too lazy and a comment is easier. So whats up with this challenge.

On a second note. What is bias tape and whats it purpose I have heard the name mentioned in a few things but you know I am a guy and we are clueless.
