It was such a beautiful day outside that I decided to walk down to the library and to the park. I admit that I was also looking for an excuse to try out my new baby, a Fujifilm FinePix S700 This is such a nice camera. The pictures are so much clearer than my little point and shoot and the colors are much truer.

The super macro setting is crazy! I have been getting into photography a little bit more and while I didn't want to spend tons of cash on a digital SLR, I also wanted to have a little more control over the finished photo than my point and shoot offered. This is the perfect compromise. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

The Mafia Bride

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of watching one of my dearest friends and founding member of the Knitting Mafia marry the love of her life. Did I mention that he is my brother? The ceremony was lovely and yarn abounded. There were the hand knit socks that my brother wore,

the modified Stardust sweater/shrug that each bridesmaid wore, the glorious Gemstone Silk shrug the bride wore down the aisle, even the bouquets got the yarn treatment by holding the pretty tulips and daisies in place. It was a beautiful day with many a teary eye as Shawn and Amanda pledged their love to each other. Congrats to them!
