Looking closer

The patio knitting continues.  I’ve gotten the first sleeve on my caramel sweater done since the pic below was taken and gotten the double points in for the second.  The yarn is Roslyn from Cascade, a wool/silk blend.  The plan is to duplicate stitch around the bottom in a red design once I’m done with the knitting.

The knitting would go faster if I wasn’t distracted by the garden.  This time it started with trying to see how close up I could get with my phone and iPad cameras to various surfaces:

My jeans, the table top, a patio paver, and a slightly blurry zucchini.

Then I went for more zucchini elements.  (Honestly, the zucchini and I are absolutely bonded at this point.)

From there I was pretty much crawling around on the lawn and patio trying to get as close to various flowers as the camera focus would allow.

Meanwhile, no-longer-a-puppy Maxx kept watch.

Well, when she wasn’t messing up my shots by barging in and trying to eat the bees.  That is a lesson soon to be learned.
