I Heart Macro Sunday - Textures

It is another I Heart Macro Sunday and this time it is all about the textures.

Hobe sleeping on the chair
I thought I would share a photo of Hobe.  He is one of the cats that has free range of Sleepy Creek Vineyards.  Last weekend mom and I were at Sleepy Creek for a show.  Hobe was curled up on one of the chairs in the showroom snoozing away.  He was in that chair almost the whole time we were there, so I had to get pictures of him.  None of my cats lay still long enough for me to get close ups of them, so I used Hobe for my pictures.

Red Viking Knit I just finished up and mom is putting the last of the finishing touches on.  I plan on listing this chain later today in the Etsy shop.

More Viking Knit that we are finishing up and will be listed in the Etsy shop.

Wire that just arrived from Parawire.  We had a request for a Viking Knit chain and we didn't have the color, so I went shopping.

This is one of the beads I was making yesterday, a sugar bead.  I need to get the beads out of the kiln, cleaned, photographed and listed on Etsy.

This is the yarn I am working with and the needles to make a friend a knitted hat/scarf.  This is one of those hats that is very long, sort of like a scarf.  Plus I have to add a pom pom to the end of the hat, must have a pom pom.  I started this hat last January and I put it down until around the beginning of November.  I am hoping I can get it done before this coming January.  I only have about 66 more stitches to decrease - decrease twice and knit that row and then knit five more rows and repeat.  Yeah, we will see if I can get this done since I have only had time to knit about 18 rows at night.

So, that is our textures macro.  Head on over to Studio Waterstone to check out what other people are taking pictures of.
