Today I picked up a new skein of yarn. Some beautiful Malabrigo sock yarn for my new project.
My soon-to-be Whisper cardigan, that is. I am so excited about the yarn, the color, and the cardi. Perfect for Summer, and nearly year-round. I was going for summery colors, and wanted to try and steer away from my ‘usual’ colors I go for, which tend to be in the wine/red/purple realm. I didn’t get too far from that, but this just kept jumping out at me. It kept me thinking of summer sunsets, tropical drinks, and sangria. Yum! I couldn’t resist.
This knitting project marks the beginning of something new, a new hobby. Really, I do not need another hobby, but this is one I’ve been wanting to take up and get into for a long time now.
Hubby and I just recently got a new camera. We’ve wanted to get a good one that we’d have for long-term and be able to take good photos with, and so I can learn and pursue something I have a passion for. It is awesome, I’m in love and so excited!
I love photography, and dating back to my college days about 7-ish years ago, have been wanting to learn and hone my photography skills . I always wanted to fit in a photography class into my schedule every semester and never did it. So now I am finally venturing in.
Just finding my way around the big boy of a camera and having fun with it. I am going to be using it all the time, practicing, teaching myself, reading, and maybe I’ll take a class this Fall. And what better time than now to start practicing, with the 4th of July, a long weekend with family, and with summer finally starting.
Well you’ll be seeing some knitting and lots of (better) photos on here. 🙂
