"These stitches are the fundamentals of knitting and are the basis of every garment. The knit stitch is a series of flat, vertical loops that produces a knitted fabric face and the purl stitch is its reverse. One side is smooth, the other bumpy. Knit is what you show the world; purl is the soft, nubbly underside you keep close to your skin." ~Kate Jacobs, The Friday Night Knitting Club
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Juicy - as in fresh, mighty fine-looking veges. These photos were taken at the fresh air market in Hanalei, Kauai after a day of swimming and beach worshipping on one of the finest beaches in the Hawaiian chain... but I digress.
These photos remind me how I am already missing the fresh, juicy veges and fruits of summer!
PS: Last week's theme was a difficult one and time seems to be gone by the time I get to sit with free time these days :o(

Alive as in an active volcano. This is the vog from Mount Etna in Sicily. In 2004 I visited Siciliy and Etna was kind enough to 'do her thing' for me the night I arrived. Each night we were treated to a natural display of red and yellow fireworks. During the day, vog settled around the mountain tops. I still think that the volcanic eruption had something to do with my contracting Legionnaire's disease after that trip, although no one in the medical profession would confirm this as fact.
