There's no place like home

This last weekend was a dream. We really tried to make the most of it as it was our last relaxing, plan-less, whimsical weekend for the next month or so.

I did do a bit of crafting. My hands were itching for some yarn, so I obliged. I dug up a sketch I made for a lacey/cable-y tank top, tore apart my "organized" yarn stash until three balls of Baruffa Aerobic (extra-fine merino) in pale pink were successfully in my grubby little paws and began knitting away.

This yarn has incredible mileage, I got all that (minus the swatch swab) with just one ball. I love the undulating waves of the rib border in this picture.

Now, I only have three balls of this stuff, so I am praying to the knitting gods that that's enough. I didn't even cut my swatch from the ball I knit it on just in case I might need that extra yardage.


I also spent a lot of time outdoors pretending that I am truly the photographer I so desire to be. The kit lens on my camera really isn't good enough to do the awesome depth of focus shots you see in some of the great pictures so I decided to play with composition and just grand old fun picture taking. ENJOY!
