Vengeance Continues

Summer continues with a vengeance here on the East Coast. We've been warned about heat stroke, brownouts, blackouts, you name it. Even New York's state parks are staying open - for free - for the next couple of days. Boy do I wish I didn't have to work so I could take advantage of a free swim at Jones Beach.

More Knitting

I did knit a few more rows on the Hanging Garden, and even got a much better picture of it.

I was mistakenly thinking I could get a better picture if I put more light on the subject. Well, this one had less light, and I like it much better than the other pictures I snapped. You can really see the texture of the piece here, and the beads showed up better too. This is closer to the real yarn color.

I guess I just need a whole lot more practice with my camera. (My Hubbo, by the way, thinks I'm completely nuts taking pictures of my knitting. I haven't explained the blog to him - I don't think he'd understand that.)

I also knit a few more rows on the Esprit tank top. I took a couple of photos, but foolishly forgot to upload them to this computer, so I will have to wait until tomorrow to show progress pictures of that one.

I'm feeling like I need more progress, more finishing. But I can only knit so fast. The need to finish has still not overtaken me to the extent that I can only knit on one project until it's done. How boring is that? Instead I choose to complain. Hey, it's my blog and I'll complain if I want to......(mucical notes reverberating in my mind).

Since I have no cat to take up the slack in my blog and show gratuitous pictures of, I guess that's it. Now grandchildren I have plenty, but I'm sure I'd be stoned out of the blogworld if I started posting those pictures!

Okay, that does it. I have to get the pattern and start HG. The beads are really lovely and compliment it perfectly. Now, if I can find a way to justify another cone of Zephyr...

(Thanks for no cats. ;-) )
