Cop Out

I haven't gotten around to taking any pictures of finished projects lately and I'm going on another trip tomorrow so I won't be around for a bit, but I wanted to share some additional pictures I took of my Autumn Arbor Stole a while back and never posted here (I'm put them up on Ravelry, though.)



This shawl has now found a new home with the mother of one of my good friends, and I hope she likes it!


And because I can't help myself, here are some bird photos.  Baby Blue Jays!  They're a little hard to see, but there were three of them and they were oh so adorable.  I couldn't stay long, though, because the parents were doing that thing where they divebomb your head.  Very unwelcoming, but an effective trick.


See you when I get back!  (I finished and blocked my Boneyard a while back.  Photographic evidence when it's not too hot to go outside to take pictures.  That may be in October.)

  2. This stole is worth the extra photos. I love the waterfall look. It's already been said, but what a fantastic colorway, and what a beautiful job knitting! Kudos.

  3. This is the stole that brought me to your blog when I saw it on Ravelry. Absolutely stunning! Your friend's mother is one lucky gal!

  4. That is a gorgeous shawl and a very long one! It must have taken forever to knit it.

    I had never seen baby blue jays; they are kind of chunky and very cute.

  5. 1) Those shawl photos are awesome. I love how the green moss picks up the green in the yarn. I should have you do my FO shots.

    2) Baby Blue Jays! Super cute!

    3) October is one of our hottest months down here. *sigh* But I'm glad someone will be able to take photos outside. ;-)

  7. Jays are vicious bastards. One day I was walking around in Regent Square and a sparrow plopped down dead on the sidewalk in front of me with the back of it's skull pecked out. I looked up to see a blue jay on a branch overhead looking very pleased.

  8. Have you ever met Nancy Eddy at Natural Stitches? She's an avid bird watcher and I think you two would have a great time together.

  11. How could anyone not like it? It's lovely, and an honor to receive as a gift. Where you live is also beautiful.

    I have a photo somewhere of a juvie blue jay perched on my windshield wiper, taken from inside the car. He was a cutie, before he flew off.
