I Dream of Knitting:

I mostly have been dreaming about spinning a lot more someday. I add a few fibers to my wishlist, and I'm excited the basement will be done soon so I will have the room.

Photography Adventures:
  • I was blessed and privileged to photograph the March of Dimes event in Greeley, CO. What an amazing experience!

  • I purchased a 55-200mm f3.5-5.6 lens for this event, it wasn't an expensive lens but it made a huge difference in the quality of my photos!

  • I have been taking classes on Creative Live from Susan Stripling and Jim Garner, which really helped my photography and story telling skills.
  • Tip for this week - backlighting. Try putting your light source behind your subject, whether it's the sun, a flash, or a lamp. This is a great tip for hard light!


  1. Your Rainbow Dash socks are almost done! Hooray! And again, I love the pictures you took for March of Dimes. And that shawl. Just wow.

  2. Love your podcast. Saw this and thought of you....... One of the easiest DIY swifts I've seen!
