Knitting Project Update
I finally have some things finished, and can share some photos here.
first is my lace ribbon scarf, a free pattern from knitty.com
I knit this on US size 3 needles (3.25mm) using Dream in color Smooshy sock yarn in the Bruhaha colorway. It was fun pattern, and I'd knit it again, except I DON'T need another scarf!
Next up: Crest o'the wave scarf (like I said, I DON'T need another scarf!!)
I don't actually remember the specifics of this, other than I got the yarn at Lambtown, in Dixon CA last July. Its alpaca with a bit of flash it in, it's soft as a cloud, and I bought if from a vendor from Oregon (that's all I remember!) I actually finished this scarf quite some time ago, but just got around to blocking it, after buying some foam floor pads from costco for the purpose of Blocking. They work great.
coming up next -- My blocked Juno Regina! It should come off the blocking pads tonight. Then I'm done blocking for awhile.

Trains at Bob and Teri Guys May 25th, 2008
Harts Passenger Train
Harts Passenger Train... it was easy getting these shots, I just put the camera on the Ground.
Bob's circus Train
My favorite.. note the circus train in the background (going backwards) which I didn't even notice till after I viewed my video!
Johns Sumpter Valley
Harts train from a different perspective
Keiths Switch engine
and the night shot... came out pretty good all things considered!

Trekking Socks and Harmony Needles
I'm using my usual 64 stitches k2/p2 rib for as long as I feel like doing it, then just plain stockinette, with the usual heel flap. for Kicks I think I'll do a star toe.
Now about those Harmony Needles -- WOW!!!! They are smooth, lightweight, 6 in, (perfect length for me) and so darn pretty. I think I have new favorite needles. I haven't tried the Harmony circulars yet, but the DPNs are perfect.
Photo's of my SOCK in progress to follow.

Thank you all
who stopped by to visit my blog, and let me know that YES you could see what I had done so far. Now I'm greatly inspired to take more (and better) photos of my works in progress to share with everyone. There has also been a special request for a sub-section (how do I do a sub-section, I'm just now figuring out how to type basic posts!!!) on vacation photos... so here's a sample of a vacation pic...
Until I get around to taking a decent photo of my two present works in progress (sock using Lorna's laces, and baby afghan with Red Heart Baby soft) you'll just have to settle for a photo of my hubby and I in front of Ayers Rock (Uluru) in our dorky matching sweatshirts!

Day one.... My first Blog...
I'm launching myself into the blogging world. This will be a way for me to share my knitting adventures (both good and bad) with my fellow knitting nuts. Stay tuned as I figure out how to blog, how to post photos etc.
I finished this pair of socks a while back.. it is the cascading leaves pattern from Jeannie townsend, and they are lovely and the yarn is soooo soft. It's Austermann step.
