Circle of Faith

As I've been photographing the local churches for the book I'm doing, I realized that several have had round stained glass windows. Here are 4 of them, though I've shot several others too.

It's been nothing but grey here for several days on end now. I thought I'd get a little bit of a "pick me up" when I noticed a post on Ravelry that Brenda Dayne had posted a new episode of Cast On. But alas, something is wrong and I am currently unable to download it.


Guess I'll just keep knitting on my sweater. (Though the siren song of sock yarns is calling me.......)

Happy shooting and knitting!

And Now For Something Completely Different . . .

. . . a sweater . . . for ME!

I'm in the process of knitting a sweater for myself. I chose the February Lady Sweater pattern from Ravelry. Here's a picture of the original from the lady who created the pattern which was inspired by Elizabeth Zimmerman:

(NOTE: This is TOTALLY her picture!)

The one I'm making for myself is from Knit Pick's yarn, Ambrosia. It is 80% alpaca and 20% cashmere. It's heavenly! It's in the colorway "night sky" which is a blue headed down the steel/grey path. Everyone who has seen it has "oohed" and "aahed" over it.

When I get a chance I will take a picture and post it.

This is hell week for me as far as work goes. The book is supposed to go to the printer on Friday. The magazine is long overdue and far from being done. And I am also working on two advertising projects, one of which is due Wednesday.

Can you say "over-extended?"

Also have to squeeze in some medical and dental appointments for a variety of people and pets this week.

So it's a good thing I have this sweater project to keep me de-stressed, eh?

Happy knitting!
