Happiness is new red socks!!! I know it's early for fall but I'm still happy to have these. Deets on the blog and I also discuss The New Yorker article on A Better Kind of Happiness and how certain activities lead to happiness and while the article doesn't mention knitting it does feature a picture of a very happy knitter, which I think speaks for itself :) So go knit and be happy! lol http://theknittingblogbymrpuffythedog.blogspot.com/2016/07/knitting-socks-and-why-knitting-is.html

With all the peaches in season I made an old fashion peach cobbler and it was as good today as I'm sure it ever was! I scooped into the cobbler for the picture to show the luscious filling and give some action to the picture. Shot with a macro lens I focused on the dessert and not on composition. All natural light coming primarily from a sky light.

I knit this bear for the Mother Bear Project whose mission is to bring comfort and hope to children in emerging nations devastated by the horrible HIV/AID pandemic. It's a very worthwhile cause and I hope you'll consider participating in this effort.

I love knitting with mini-skeins!!! But knitting with multi-colored skeins is not without risk.... so I wrote out some tips to help avoid a color bleed disaster. Hope this helps someone :)

I can't stop knitting multi-colored shawls. I'm not sure why they have captured my love recently because it's not as though I haven't knit multi-colored projects before. I think a lot has to do with the proliferation of gor...

You're welcome +Christina Blount!!! It really I think is more a risk now than it used to be with all the gorgeous multi-colored shawls and I hate to think of anyone having a beautiful shawl ruined without appreciating this risk.

Speckles and brights oh my oh my!!! These are sure fun colors to knit... but I did feel like I had to tone it down with a dark navy contrasting color! Project details blogged: http://theknittingblogbymrpuffythedog.blogspot.com/2016/05/speckles-and-brights-and-how-to-wear.html
I'm loving the current speckles and brights trend! I know there is a lot to be said for knitting natural colors for wearability and usefulness yadda yadda yadda. But when it comes to fun summer knitting you can't beat brigh...

I am so happy with this summery shawl! Even though I did everything wrong (I used a gradient color when it should have been a solid and it was the wrong type of yarn) it somehow all worked out.

Apricots are in season and I couldn't resist making a tart/cake! I shot this late in the day using all natural light. I added a fresh apricot for color and the tea for mood ~

Dog lover, hobby photographer, blogger living in Los Angeles
Introduction
I live in the Santa Monica Mountains overlooking the beaches of Malibu, California and hike every morning with my german shepherd. I take pictures on our hikes as well a variety of other locations around Southern California.  Although I no longer update my blog as frequently as I once did I still enjoy hand crafts and cooking and these pictures are in my stream as well. Apparently I've never outgrown the show and tell phase of childhood.
