Just off the Hook!

This was a "purse project" (project carried in purse) that I finished this morning for a quick sense of accomplishment. This is a modified version of the pattern I often use for slippers.

This week's pattern is from Lion Brand. It is a circular afghan called Caitlin's Circle Afghan. If you look under my blog's header you will see a tab that lists other links to free patterns for round(ish) afghan patterns. i like this pattern because of the big wedges of colors.

Photo a Day for June 4th

"Close up" is the topic for today's photo. Here is a closeup of a lily in my backyard. My camera is not efficient when it comes to closeups. The auto focus seems to "slip" in and out as I aim the camera--grrrr....!

I love my lilies. I have this one growing in 1/2 of an old whiskey barrel that sits on an old tree stump. Originally, I put the lily bulbs in the barrel as a temporary measure until I figured out a place to put them. I liked them so well in the barrel that there is where they'll stay.
