Photography during the Summer time is so rewarding. For one thing, when the Sun is shining it makes the world light up...then I tend to want to check things out from a fairy's point of view.
Here's 2 of my favorites so far this season....

The one on the left is of a garlic flower...each one of these little bobbins would turn into a lovely garlic...beautiful and yummy too.

Petunias....ahh, what's not to like. They come in a great variety of colors, shapes and sizes... with just a little bit of care they go on and on...

These are our newest addition to Ernst Finely Crafted Glass Family....our Scarf Needles. They are 6 1/2 to 7 inches long (approximately). Truly 2 pairs will every be alike....similar, sisters from another mother, as different as night from day.
Just long enough, and light enough to make a scarf special...from start to finish.
I will be figuring out a way to place them on the site soon...just couldn't help showing them off.

Thanks to all who wrote in to say Hi! I am pleased to know that I will be seeing you at Sock Summit....coming right up now.
See you there ;)<

What's all the fuss about ;)< Trah lah....

It's come to my attention that it's been...well lets just say...quite a while since I did a blog post.
I guess that once every 6 months...or so...isn't asking too much.
There is something to talk about too...

The Very First Sock Summit....It's Right here in Oregon.. Fortunate for me just a bit over 150 miles away from home!
If you are an avid sock knitter....I Am...this is the place to be.

I am VERY HAPPY to say that I have been using Ernst Glass Double Points to make socks this Summer in all sorts of yummy's just a few, a background to the Sock Summit logo...isn't it cool!!
