Friday Sky (instead)

My house this morning as I left for work was above the fog so the moon was shinning bright. I snapped this from my driveway, handheld 1/80 sec at F5.6, not even my big lens. I can’t believe it was before my first cup of coffee!
The Taos Chaco Canyon yarn was in my mailbox when I got home and it sure isn’t the nice deep colorway shown in their sample. In real life the colors aren’t as saturated at all. It’s still going to knit into some cute socks but I’m disappointed in the color. Boo on Crystal Palace.

Anyway back to photography. Just a challenge. Post a copy of the very oldest picture file (of a picture you took) that is stored on the computer you are currently using. Mine is:
I can’t believe that trip was nearly 6 years ago! (4/27/01) What a fun kayak trip. We left the White Bluffs boat launch on the Columbia River at about 9am in a cold cold rain storm. Rain ended at about noon when we pulled onto the small beach at Ringold (west bank). By the time we took out at Leslie Groves park in Richland at 3:30pm, the sun was shinning bright. If I remember right, that was a 31 mile paddle. My kayak (one of my three) is the turquoise one on the left. It’s my touring kayak. I also have a whitewater and a recreational.

    You’re a kayaking fiend, eh? I have a few friends who are, too.

    Boo on Crystal Palace indeed!

    That bites about the yarn. Is it something that you can overdye to make brighter? I have some yarn here that I am completely uninspired by. Most of it was gifted to me. When the weather warms up sufficiently then it will be bathing in the dye pots. I will probably NOT mention anything about the various yarns’ origins or treatments when/if I blog about any finished products for fear of hurting someone’s feelings. Because you purchased this yourself you can vent, rant or do whatever. Have a great weekend and stay warm. We’ve been cold over here on the west side of the state, but it’s been quite awhile since we’ve had snow, etc.
