Shooting blind

We had a wonderful time visiting my parents this last week.  Getting out of the city and into the woods was just what was needed.  And the weather being crisp, the leaves changing and falling, and so many crafty things getting done was icing on the cake.

My camera had an accident last week and the screen is no longer working so it really is just point and shoot now.  Shooting without seeing exactly what the camera is seeing is certainly different.  Here are a few I had to share:

Emerson's quilt

For the record, only the first and last images were edited at all.   And he wore the vest almost every single day.  And he picked the orange minky for the quilt.

Have a lovely weekend friends!

Hi! I'm one of Erica's friends/ex-Baton Rouge resident and I stumbled across your blog today after checking up on hers. As soon as I saw the vest you crocheted for your son, I knew I needed to make a comment. I'm a knitter who dabbles in crochet, and I have to say that that yarn is amazing (and the vest is adorable). What is it, and what colorway is that green? Alpaca and green are my favorite things to knit with. :)

Anyway, hope I'm not being creepy or anything, but I love your blog and am glad I ran across it!

Hey Nikki!
The yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Pea soup and if you want to general instructions for the vest I can give them to you. Not really a pattern as much as the count for each row.
Thank you for visiting! I hope to see you back here often!

I love Berroco Ultra Alpaca (as well as most Berroco items), but haven't seen that shade of green. I may hit you up for that vest pattern once I get my crochet hook going again. Right now, I have a 9.6 x 6.5 notbook paper page-long list of knitted projects I need to finish by the holidays, so it'll probably be a while. Eek!
