I have some yarns that are lovely, but they just don’t jive with me anymore. They need to come live with you! You can check out my destash page on Ravelry to see what I have for sale.

On a clear night… November 10, 2012
I took Valentina & Sally out in the driveway tonight for a little star gazing. I was able to see Jupiter and three of it’s moons, Aldebaran, and Pleiades.
Click on this and look at the largest version. You can see the three moons. It’s the best photo of Jupiter I’ve taken yet. I took these photos through my telescope using the camera on my cell phone.
Sterope, Taygeta, & Maia of Pleiades.
Alcyone, Merope, & Electra of Pleiades
I only managed to get a photo of six of the seven sisters; I missed Caleano. I also missed their parents, Atlas & Pleione.
Ishbel III July 8, 2012
Sometimes you find a pattern that you just love. Ishbel was the first triangle lace shawl that I made and I suppose it must have a special place in my heart because I’ve now made three of them. The first, I made in malabrigo lace and followed the small instructions. The second, I made in alpaca prima and followed the large instructions. This one is made in Ella Rae Lace Merino and I’m calling it a medium. I followed the small instructions through the stockinette section and the large lace chart instructions. I just barely squeaked by with 5-7 yards left.
Transit of Venus June 5, 2012
I was lucky enough to be able to leave work an hour early and not have cloud cover until the very end.
I loaded up Valentina, my telescope, this morning without knowing where I’d be able to set up. I ended up in a grocery store parking lot then ended up moving to a dollar store parking lot before cloud cover rolled in.
I took these photos through my telescope’s lens with my cell phone’s camera.

At first, I didn’t like this binding. After the book was finished, I really love it. I’ll be using it again.
