I haven’t posted any photos of anything pretty in a bit, and looking at some tulips from a 4 year old’s perspective the other day gave me some inspiration, so I thought I’d share. These were taken with my old Casio Exilim (point-and-shoot) and not my fancy new Nikon DSLR.
And now for some knitting-related content—
On the way back from Seabrook a few weeks ago, I went past a few yarn stores and my husband was successful in keeping it that way, until we passed through the town of Allyn and stopped for gas along the highway. I got out of the car to stretch my legs and, bingo, there was a yarn store right across the street! Allyn Knit Shop is a very unassuming yarn store on the outside, but walking in, I think I heard angels sing—it’s filled to every corner with yarn. Not wanting to leave empty-handed, especially having finished Wine and Roses Mitts for my mom, I was feeling pretty virtuous, so I bought two skeins of super soft Sugar Rush (100% sugar rush viscose) from Queenland Collection in a juicy red.
By the way, I gave Wine and Roses to Mom yesterday and she was so delighted with them she asked for another pair—cheeky! 😉
