Following the third year of a holiday letter comprised
of my (increasingly complex) life via a (increasingly complex) year-in-photographs, I
wondered what it would be like to join the great experiment of 365 days of photographs.
I'm not a photographer,
I'm a writer. I'm a visual thinker, and if ever there was proof that a photo is worth a
thousand words, it would be the story a photo tells me, or in this case, about me.
Follow me on this adventure, where I
learn about photography, my ability to record my life, my dedication to something (I've
never been known for doing anything everyday) in my posts. I've also discovered I'm
learning about time, the history of it, and the odd practice of recording it, measuring it,
turning it into something tangible, and I'll record these explorations in the sidebar.
As always, feel free
to say anything. My experiment is not a spectator sport.

August 19 2009 Why Would You Knit That?: This ain't Grandma's afghan

For the Fishes

A not-yet-stuffed fish and, what, fish food?

For Original Blog Why Would You Knit That?

Unfortunately, this blog hasn't posted in going on a year. Boo hoo. But I loved the oddities it has posted, especially the dissected lab animals. Yay! weird!

Also, I know the host site usually links to a pattern but there is none. I made it all up as I went. Oh well.

I nearly finished the fish tonight (too lazy to link you to the first fish post) and my son went with me and garbled some swatches together with a yarn needle and some yarn. He's very proud of them. (He's four, remember.) I'm proud of them, too. Fish needs eyes and stuffing and all the ends woven in. Almost done!

Setting up the photo was kind of fun, with our blue bench.
