eye candy friday, fiddleheads in progress edition

I was one of the lucky first few to snag one of Adrian’s Fiddlehead kits two years ago. Since then it’s been sitting in my stash, still in the box. Every now and then I’d open it, pet it, loving fold the tissue back over it and put it away.

There was a mini-run on Fiddlehead WIPs on flickr over the weekend so I jumped in, wound it up and cast on. I’m into the third colour on the first mitten now.

eye candy Friday, fall in New England edition

I know, Fall is almost over, but I’m not ready to talk about that yet. In the meantime, enjoy these leaves and pretend they’re still on the trees.

Or that they’re still on the ground.

Or go to the beach, where it doesn’t matter.

eye candy friday, Soto Softies has been here edition

A good pal stopped by the other day to exchange some fabric and goodies and brought with her the perfect pick-me-up for my office. Lilacs! The studio smells amazing. Hurray spring! Thanks again, M, they’re perfect.

we have a winner!

And many many thanks from me for all the lovely comments on my 5th blogiversary post. I’ll be sending a boxbag to super cutie Whistlepea! Thanks again everybody! I’ll have an update with last month’s Brain Tumour Foundation donation totals too, I’m just tallying up the numbers.
 
I don’t tend to post as regularly as I like here, but I’m hoping to work on that over the next year. I’m trying to set a semi-regular(ish) schedule for myself. In the meantime though, if you’re ever wanting to know what I’m up …

Sometimes in the 365 Days project inspiration can be lacking (did I forget to mention I'm doing year 2?) Occasionally on one of those days, a throw-away shot can inspire an entire week. So you just never know when or where that inspiration will come. You just keep plugging away and kabam! There it is.

Sometimes your Mum gets in on things:

Sometimes Stitchy McYarnpants drops in to play too:

And then at the end of the week, you can sum up all the different footwear

As most folks know, I spend a lot of time trolling around on flickr. I love photography and all the quirky and odd things you can do to manipulate an image. A few years ago I stumbled across the Through the Viewfinder group. I was completely captivated by all the images. Seriously. All of them. It was like there wasn't a bad photographer in the group. I quietly bookmarked a few of the links found therein and filed it all under 'someday.'
A few weeks ago, the ever clever and talented …

The other colour that chimes in with amazing frequency is red. But still with blue, 'cause apparently I'm all about the blue. A few years ago one of my BFFs tried to have an intervention with me about the robin's egg blue. I've branched out a little since then, but you can still see the influence.

You're undoubtedly thinking, "dude. I can't handle another Rhinebeck update from yet another knitblogger. Stop talking about how much fun you had!" Seriously though? Rhinebeck was awesome.

I liken it to taking your RSS feeds, flickr contacts and Ravelry friends and dumping them all out into one place, in person, on one fairground. I got to the point where I'd met so many people that I've only known online that when I bumped into Brainylady Alison in the Brooks Farm Booth, I didn't even take pictures. It was simply "Alison! …
