Well I said that I would put better pictures of the Bavarian Cables Socks up and here they are. I know the pictures still stink but hazards of a bad camera.
I think that you can see the stitch pattern a little better though and that is what I was going for.
I like the colors in these socks, the only thing I don't like is how tight they are when going over the heel and ankle area. So I am very happy because yesterday my new size 1 circs came and yippee now I think that should do the trick.

These are taken out in the back yard, this is the greenest patch of grass I could find. In Klamath Falls we have canals that supply water to the farmers that live outside of town, and well all these canals go through town and through our neighborhood and some people like to rig up pumps to send free water into their yards or gardens but this year we are a little short and so some farmers were chosen over others to receive water. Also that means that water supply is short for others. So the backyard isn't receiving its normal sprinkling because the front yard is getting most of it. Also since we are using water that we pay for we have to limit out use. We also have spritzers rigged up around the eaves of the house and we turn them on in the afternoon to cool down the side of the house that gets the most sun.

Well I am not a crocheter be I decided to try it out when I saw this cool scarf on Ravelry, it is called the Broomstick Lace Scarf .
It is going very quickly, because you crochet around a size 35 knitting needle so each row is like an inch long.
I took some pictures of it outside and I thought that this yarn would be good for a autumn season type scarf.

I like how it is turning out and I am thinking of making another one but maybe in a more solid color so that the lace is more on display. I think that because the lace is big that lots of colors work just fine with the pattern but I think it would be nice in heather grey or something like that.
