Knitting, of course.   The Weekly Photo Challenge created by Krista Stevens 

“How would you fill in the blank?”    I’d Rather Be…

If given the choice, what would you rather be doing, right now?

So many possibilities.

I was knitting at a friend’s home, Finishing up these PairPerfect Socks.  The Regia yarn 75% wool 25% nylon designed by Arne and Carlos is dyed so it turns out looking like you really did something fancy.  You get two identical socks, knit from the top down.  When the colors change, you go on to the next step.  It falls into almost mindless knitting category.

Charlie and the Jack-in-the-Box

Jen H. Challenges bloggers to tell a story visually. Here’s a seven photo series telling the story of Charlie learning to manage the springy Curious George monkey- in-the-box. My favorite the last picture. I wonder what he was saying to the monkey.


Ready for Lift Off to the Moon

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Blast off!

Charlie (2 1/2) was in his astronaut suit after breakfast, ready for lift off before Ben Huberman at WordPress challenged bloggers to show Out of this World.

(Ben did say it could be a loose interpretation of the theme)


Headed for Home

After the swim meet Friday night. Ohio State U. Here’s the family headed to the car. The pizza order already phoned in for pick up. We’ll be back at the pool at 8 in the morning, 6 am on Sunday. I was lagging behind the family a bit, hauling a bag and a chair. Jack came to relieve me of the chair which was nice. I saw the lights and shadows. Steve’s old dorm. No face in the crowd.


A Face in the Crowd

This week’s challenge was just that- a challenge.

What’s Inside is Sweet

Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress challenges bloggers to post a photo of something (or someone) sweet.

Vincie brought the foil wrapped Betsy Ann chocolate balls (made in Pittsburgh) to the House Concert and Molly brought the Sarris Candies (from Canonsburg) for Valentine’s. Sweet!

I think the bright wrappers make it inviting to unwrap them.
