This is from my first day out using my Nikon D5200 in full manual mode.  Not great but not bad either.

Part of a train I found cool looking.

Diamond, cowl Scarf Crochet Project

cowl scarfThis is what I was trying to make, but I thought the number of stitches in the pattern were too few and I would feel too confined, so I added a ton more.

Overall, I had the idea down and can do the stitches, but my end product was very curly. the pictures below are just the first 4 rounds of stitching.  I have attempted this twice and they are very curly.  I will add more pictures so you can see what I mean.  I determined my issue is that I am stitching too tight.  I am practicing loosening up my stitches and following the pattern as stated to get the desired outcome.  I will get there eventually.

Cooking for One:

No one said that cooking for one had to be boring.  A beautiful beaded table runner, flowers, dishes with an artistic flair (the don’t match but they go), Steamed clams, Edemame, giant raisins, sparkling water with pomegranate juice.  This pulls together my favorite places to shop, (Trader Joe’s, World Market and Pier One)
