Fall Back to Knitting

As much as I would like to post more regularly, it does get crazy around here.
I've tried to pinpoint what distracts me from writing posts for the blog. I don't think it's the writing, really I don't. There's my own personal problem of failure to finish things. And by finishing things, I don't mean not knitting them. I have at least 10 projects that are knitted, but need some finishing touches, like blocking and weaving in ends. Those are the things I dislike about knitting, which is odd. I guess it means I'm not destined to be a seamstress, huh?
I actually think it's the photography aspect that keeps me from posting on a regular basis.
I am not a photographer, and that is a problem, my friends. My husband is a great photographer, yet he is not so much interested in photographing knitting. So, until I can convince him that knitting is a worthwhile subject, you will have to endure my iPhone photographs.
I must admit that it's a big challenging at times to get good light and angles, even with a point and snap phone!

Esjan Shawl - Design by Stephen West. Knit in The Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted.

A Low Brow hat, also in The Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted. Yes, Plucky is my favorite yarn!

Some socks knit from deep stash in Autumn House yarn, and promptly delivered to my Nana, who lives in them. I love it when people appreciate hand-made!
And finally a fun knit.....Knit picks Felici self-striping yarn. I know, I know. It's a strange choice for a yarn snob like me, but they were fun, and the price was right. Who can argue with $7 knitted socks? Not me.

Happy Fall! It's knitting season again. Hallelujah!
