...And there were pictures

A quick but photo-packed post...
(Click on any photo for a larger view.)

As promised, pictures:

First, the BSJ. This is a photo before the blocking and seaming.

I discovered what I was doing wrong on my increases but I will not be frogging. Plus, it's not too bad.

Next up, supplies for the current project, Breeze.

I'm swatching with 3's but will probably need 4's because I knit very tightly. I like the Panda Cotton in spite of the splitting issues.

Happy Birthday to....lots of us!

August is a big birthday month for us. We actually have a quite a few in July and September as well.

The first cake you see here is the cake from my husband's birthday party which turned into an event for five of us.

The second cake is my husband's personal cake. As you can probably tell, he's quite the Mets fan, hence the Mets cake.

Thirdly, my cake. A friend of ours surprised me with this adorable cake. I did not want to cut it.

Last, but not the least of the August cakes is the cake for another relative. It was made by the same person who made the hat and yarn cakes.

In case you couldn't guess, we're swimming in cake...and my son's birthday is in September.

Wishing you all happy days ahead!
