Okay, so first things first. My blog buddy and I decided to do something a bit more fun than just linking to each others sidebars for blog-buddy-ness. So, we decided to do a week of photography. This week, we are doing “Expressions” as the theme, and Monday was the day for HAPPY! Now, despite it being the third sunny day in a row in the rainiest city in Canada, I couldn’t find anyone that looked happy. I mean, everyone in my family was happy, but I had a Plan. I was going to go out and find random happy strangers and take a ton of happy photos and post them as a collage type thing. BUT NO ONE LOOKED HAPPY. There were a lot of people out, which is rare here, but they all looked totally grumpy. Now its nighttime and dark and I’m the only one with a camera and I have this problem with taking happy pictures of myself. They all become those weird-angle-myspace-profile-emo-pics. Not too happy looking. So, I scrounged a bit. And found this:
That’s actually a photo from
last year TWO YEARS AGO, but it emanates joy. I mean, I was leaving high school :p Happy times. Oh, and that’s my mom with me :D Go check out my blog-buddy g-ster, ’cause she may actually have a current photo.
Now, for something that made me happy today–the BF played photographer again :D
These are coming along nicely, one more to do and then the larger size. The testers are doing amazingly well and catching all sorts of things, including a line that made about as much sense as a monkey at the keyboard. I’m pretty excited.
Now for some older ones–the Dumber Than Snake Mittens finally got their chance at decent photographs. They are so bright and fun! I have no idea if I’ll ever actually wear them ’cause they are so bright, but I can definitely see me using the basic pattern and inserting another cable pattern in, with a decent yarn (not Caron Simply Soft Brites! in Limelight :p) Maybe the DNA cable? Oooh, that is totally happening!
And he got some good pictures of the Bronte’s Mitts that I did for the May KAL in FGF. They are so soft and warm and wonderfully pretty.
I’m looking forward to the June pattern—Merletto Mitts are so great-looking and KALs are fun!
