So let’s see… when I last left off I’d begun dyeing yarn and was knitting a set of Noro socks. I finished the socks and Sock #2 turned out with less of a wonky stripe at the heel thankfully. I’m still not thrilled with the thick and thin of Noro especially when dealing with something as fine as sock yarn, but the color is so worth it, I WILL be trying to figure out how they get such beautiful colorways in their dyeing. 🙂

…to finally make my sister a stole/scarf/wrap thingy. 🙂 I’m using the One Skein: A Stole pattern which is free in Ravelry and uber easy yet lovely.

I treated myself to a new camera for my upcoming birthday so I can now take pictures like these…

I went on a much needed vacation during which I fell in love again with St. Joe, MI and taking photographs of it’s beautiful scenery.

Quickie Hello

Greetings and Salutations from Fabulous Floridaaaah!

We’re having a blast down here in the Sunshine State. Lots of giggling, swimming, walking, sweating, and picture taking is being had by all. I’ve also been Knitting in Public too working on a pair of Happy Florida Socks to remember the trip with. 🙂 We’ve had one day of rain (Tuesday) but even that didn’t thwart the fun. We’ve been to Sea World to get some Shamu love, we’ve visited Downtown Disney and the Mall at Millenia, plus Super Target (a Florida tradition). My dad and Brian spent Tuesday in Tampa visiting the Bucaneers, Lightning, and Rays stadiums and today they’re off at Universal Studios for the day while we’re about to head over to River Island here at the resort which is that oh so fabulous lazy river. Ahh… Tomorrow is Magic Kingdom Day… Whoot! 🙂 It’ll be Brian’s first trip to Disney so I’m a little more geeked than I normally am when I’m about to go to Disney. hehe…

Pictures are slowly uploading to Photobucket and I’ll share them later today! I’ve got a few of my photo assignments done, but I’m still working on the others. :o) For now, it’s off to bask in the sun and be a total pool slug. 🙂

It’s vacation time!

It’s Florida time!

It’s picture time!

Okay so one of my vacation traditions from my daily blog is to ask for photo assignments when I go on vacation. Since that blog is locked to the public now I thought I’d offer up the photo assignment thingy to all of y’all.

So here’s how it works, you can give me a theme, a word, an object, or something creative and I’ll do my best to get something captured by the end of the week. For example last year when I was in Daytona a few of my assignments were “Butt” “Pink” “Funky Tree” and “Pirates” Here’s what I came up with…
