In Color

(because I’ve had several people ask:  links to the pattern for this crochet project are in this post.)

All the grayness outside has me looking for little spots of color inside.  I thought it might be nice if some of you wanted to do the same and share your photos with the rest of us.
(p.s.  photos taken with my D90.  I put the warranty info. and packaging somewhere “safe” and can’t seem to find it, so I haven’t sent it for repair yet as I had planned.  It does just fine with still photos though.)
I will leave this linky open indefinitely, so if you post your own “in color” photos on your blog, you can come back here and share a link to your post here.  I will add a photo link in the sidebar so that this post can be easily revisited.

I thought it was funny (and the Yarn Along Giveaway winner!)

I want to thank everyone who joined the Yarn Along yesterday, and also taught Keats all about the joy of reading blog comments.  He became quite compulsive, checking for new ones throughout the day.  The neat thing is that all your positive feedback has him itching to cast on again, this time a hat for the baby brother due in May.
And because I am hoping that you won’t be horrified by this exchange, but find it as hilarious as I did….
(overheard last night)
Keats to Gabe:  “I should knit a pair of underwear and put it on the Yarn Along.”
Keats and Gabe:  *hysterical laughter*  (underwear is so funny when you are eight years old!)
Keats:  “Then someone might comment, Nice panties!”  (the word panties is even funnier)
Keats and Gabe:  *more hysterical laughter* 

Yes, we are at that stage with our boys.

Oh, and the giveaway!!  I used random number generator of course to choose the winner.  Christina of A Button and a Fig wins the yarn!  Congratulations!
