Yarn Along

My gardens are all planted, so right now, I am back to a little knitting.

I am still working on my Honey Cowl
but I have rounded the bend and I am headed toward home plate.

I am enjoying this picture book I picked up a few weeks ago at a 
Craft Show in Ocean Grove.
It is a black and white film photography book that includes pictures from every beach town from 
Sandy Hook to Cape May.
It is  an 11 x 12 inch hard cover book that includes photographs from 2006 - 2015, 
many of which were taken before Super Storm Sandy.
With only 250 First Edition copies, my book is both signed and numbered.
Living here at the Jersey Shore my entire life, it is a treasure to me.

  2. Many people in my family have been knitters in the past. I like that because that means there's always plenty of stuff they make for me.

  3. Hello, your honey cowl is cute. The book sounds awesome, I have heard a lot about Sandy Hook, I believe there is a wildlife refuge with that name too. Have a happy day and week ahead!

  6. You know, you could very easily do a book like that. Your photographs are of that quality.
    Your cowl is wonderful and I do love that color. Enjoy your day with your gardens all planted. You are such a hard worker.

  11. You have done so well with all your gardening, so it must be nice to turn your attention to some knitting, I do like the colours in your yarn.

    Your book sounds a great purchase, so nice to look at ... and a little different too by having all black and white photographs.

    Happy June

    All the best Jan
