AND they are all around my daughter’s neighborhood.  In fact there is one at the end of their street. img_1203

I was fascinated to see so many in just a few blocks as we drove to the playground.  Today I made a run to buy knitting needles on Indianola and wound around the tree lined streets and came across of few more. Thought they would be good for the weekly photo challenge=

Yarnbyrds: A Gourmet Yarn Truck

My son-in-law James saw a story about a yarn store on wheels.  Here’s the  clip on Columbus television.  YARNBYRDS,LLC THE YARN TRUCK

James knows I like to knit and enjoy good yarn so this morning he sent me a link from the local paper aticle about Yarnbyrds Columbus Dispatch.

A converted RV is a yarn store?  I’m in!

The Food Truck craze has inspired a gourmet Yarn Truck. What a wonderful idea.

Found the phone number and called Robin and this evening I was able to go and visit “Birdie” ( the mobile yarn store’s nickname) and make some wonderful gourmet yarn purchases, too.

Here’s Yarnbirds website for details on the delicious yarn and a calendar of where Birdie will be parked, so you can check it out, too!  A terrific selection to choose from- I know I’ll be back.

What a cool idea.  Here is the owner/ proprietor Robin Richey.

Robin’s husband Tom did all the LED lighting in the truck and so all the yarn shows in true color which is really important in a yarn store!  He’s an electrical engineer.

Robin creates the project bags. There’s jewelry and Drunk Yarn kits for dying.

Two Thirds of a Year Already

Eight months old. Seems just a blink since Charles was born, June 25th.

You’ve heard it a billion times, they grow so fast, and they do. It’s true.

Before I headed back to Pittsburgh, I wanted to photograph my grandson with the real camera and not the phone.  He’s on the move. Says “Hi, Dada”

 


Ice Skating Saturday Night

Jack was invited to an  birthday party at the ice skating rink. He was so excited.   Mark took him.

We came an hour later for “free skate” but I didn’t don skates.

A good photo op for Grandma, who happened to have the real camera, not just the iPhone.

Lots of reflections, not enough light or too much light.

Made adjustments.

On the way home I got to photograph a brightly lit house display as I was in the passenger seat.

Birds or leaves?

My daughter Laura took this image, next to Columbus Architectural Salvage, Columbus, Ohio.

The title of the post, is the question she texted me.
