Top-of-the-Waves Tuesday... no particular order.

The weather finally cooperated on Sunday so I could take photos of the tulips in front of the high school. It's at the end of the season for them, but there were still plenty of tulips to photograph. I managed to catch the window between overcast and raining. The lighting was pretty good, although I still had trouble with red flowers. Here's a preview of the shoot:

Tulips at Fremont HS

I started a new hat last Thursday. I liked the Slouchy Beehive Hat pattern so much, I decided to knit another one using the original specs. The last one I did had a shorter cast-on and I had to modify the decrease section a bit to make it work.The yarn I picked is teal, so I'm calling the hat "Teal It To The Bees" [Ravelry].

I also spent some time on the Rosewood Wrap [Ravelry]. This project is a little fiddly with the extra novelty warps I'm adding as I weave. I use a pickup stick to correctly position the extra warp threads and create a big enough shed for the shuttle to go through. Then I have to use a  tapestry beater (read: hair pick) to beat each pick. You can get away with this on a rigid heddle totally wouldn't work on a regular loom. And it doesn't take long before I'm ready to work on something else.

We finished our taxes on Sunday. The Husband had all of his numbers ready and it didn't take long to finish them up. I'm glad that's out of the way!
