hmm to get close ups I think you'd be best off using the MACRO function on your camera...and different ways to lay out; how about checking out as many galleries of the most popular/been around the longest knitters and seeing how they lay their things out? After checking out a few thousand pics you will have an idea of what you like best

Yup, macro and a tripod really helps. My camera has a vibration reduction option that is wonderful for getting up close pictures non-fuzzy.

Her I really don't want to get up you put my nap diaper on me and some comfy pants I will just sleep right here.


I finally got her to stand up and look out the window and she gave me her version of smile


And a booty shot



They fit perfectly and should fit us for a bit with just the right amount of extra inseam. They are wonderful and I am so excited that Viv has another pair of longies!
Oh Yay~~~ She looks so beautiful in her new woolies. It was such a pleasure to get to knit for you, I am so glad we were partnered up Enjoy!!!



Molly So sorry, make them hear you I have learned sometimes you have to be really loud to be heard by doctors...


Joanna sorry I left ya last night Sabella woke up with a high fever Still feverish today.. Other than being too tight I can't see what you are doing wrong...Do 2 rows loosely then take a pic

I want it. But I am so happy with our simple unbleached prefolds and being able to abuse the heck out of them.

Tell me not to buy it. It's sooo pretty though.

Angela helped me out, but i thought it wouldn't hurt for other opinions.

i gotta go though, cat has to go to the vet this morning. He's been puking bile for a few days and recently stopped drinking/eating. i hope everything is okay with him.
yes. what you did was when you brought your yarn to the front for the purls you went over top your needles instead of doing under (by your knitting) causing that look where the purls come up over top.

I feel like no doctors know what to do about it. I feel enraged. This is my CHILD. Why won't any of them help me help him?

I am on hold right now w/ his Ped to get a recommendation to Riley Chidlren's Hospital in Indy.


He's almost 3. You'd think by now SOMEONE would have SOMETHING to say that might be the answer...

I haven't even had two doctors tell me the same thing yet, and he's seen 6 of them.



Sorry to be so down. I just have a very heavy heart this morning.
Molly, what is wrong with his foot? Did he injure it or is it something else? I hope someone can figure it out soon! And sorry if I missed the reply, just got back from the Dr and there were 12 pages here instead of 2!

Mornin' girls, unfortunately I can't hang out today...I have a big audit coming up at work soon. I miss you guys. My laptop screen also broke and DH hogs the computer because he works from home. Anyway...

Molly, have you checked out the Yahoo Groups to see if there is one for Asa's condition? I belong to two groups there for Ellie's eye condition and it has been absolutely invaluable to me. There are parents there that have gone through the surgery and emotions and hardships. They know who the very best doctors are. sweetie...I'll check in during my lunch break.

Those are really nice!


Ugh, I've been trying to shovel the driveway...it's going to take me all day! We got about a foot of snow last night. As much as I love it, I can't stand shovelling - especially when the plow adds to end of the driveway .
