Rambling Rows (revised & reposted)

I'm told pictures can now be added and some of you have asked to see it so here goes:

Pillow Sides

Finally I was able to upload a couple of pictures of my pillow sides. Both sides are the same stitch pattern using Cascade 220 yarn. The colors are greens, gray, and blue.

Where I knitted this week

I spent Thursday, Friday, and part of today knitting with this as my view. Are you jealous?

It's true what they say...the camera really does add 70 pounds.
