Lots of Pretty Pictures!

Since I was without the computer for so long, I have a backlog! Here's the most recent addition to the stash, Noro Silk Garden, 10 skeins for either a Mavis or a Klaralund. I know you're supposed to KNIT with Noro in November, But I'm a little behind. I will just BUY Noro in November this year.

And this is the little "Camera Sock that Consumed Two Needles". The very nice person at Brittany told me "They are delicate in the small sizes, also affected by patterning (k2tog for example) and by yarn type (cotton which doesn’t give versus wool that does)." Really!!??? I think this was a pretty simple knit and shouldn't have broken two needles, but they do have a 5 year replacement guarantee, so they are sending more. I'm not sure I'll knit with them again, though.

A bit of the very brief Autumn that we here in the DC area have enjoyed. This is the Japanese Lace Leaf Maple in front of the house. It was gorgeous this year!

And Pie! 5 of the many pies we had at Thanksgiving. It's what happens when everyone says, "I'll just bake an extra pie in case we don't have enough."

Let them eat pie!

We had enough!

Happy Friday!

Gorgeous bush! And... I think I see cheesecake. That's definitely a cheesecake-like substance, oh, yum!

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.
