And the Winner Is?

Thanks for your help deciding which color to use for my Eyelet Cardigan. The winner was the Blue Sky Cotton in Orchid. I love the color. I started the cardigan yesterday and I have the back complete and have started on the right front.

This is a very easy and addicting pattern. I can already tell I'm going to love this sweater. Check out Michelle's eyelet cardigan. It turned out great. She made a few mods, the details are on her blog.

Here is a close-up picture of the eyelet pattern. It's a four row repeat that is really easy to memorize.

I got a new camera (Fuji Finepix S1000fd) about a month ago and have been busy taking pictures of everything. I love this camera it's really easy to use and has tons of great features. The best part is you don't need to be a photographer to take great images. Below are just a few of the pictures I have been taking.

I took this picture of Max in Super Macro mode and in black and white. The camera was only a few inches from his eye. I was surprised he let me get that close. He usually runs from the camera.

This is one of my orchids that is in bloom. This was taken in Super Macro mode also.

This is a bit of a tease because this is my next project. That is once I finish the Eyelet Cardigan. More details to follow. I hope everyone had a great weekend.
