H/Friday Finds

 a. H, the shadow on the too-bright back leaf

H is the 8th letter in my alphabetography file. I hope the back leaf isn't so bright that it hurts your eyes.  Actually, I think a woods fairy was saying HI to me, but spelled it backwards.

 b. Favourite photo of the week

This is one of the roses I received on Valentine's Day. Isn't it gorgeous?

c. Family

A member of my family takes knitting with her wherever she goes. (I usually take my camera.) Here she's trying on the sock she's knitting.  I didn't see her put her shoe on over the needles though.

I'm linking to Teresa's Friday Finds HERE

Love your colourful photos. That is a very beautiful Valentine's rose. I have never knitted socks before. This is a pretty sock.

Margaret Adamson said...

The Rose is beautiful and the photo will be a lovely reminder of that day. Love the sock shot!

Giga said...

The leaves are beautifully lit by the rays of the sun, and the rose is beautiful. Regards.

Darla said...

Fun photos. Of course I zeroed in on the sock. Very interesting. I'm curious about the little safety pin though. I do like knitting socks.

Christine said...

Oh I see the IH backwards on the leaf! That made me smile as did the toes!

Sandra said...

Mary Hone said...

You are so creative in finding the letters, way better than I would be.

Lowell said...

That's funny! I hope you took the chance to needle her a little bit about holding everything together with a safety pin!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Creative shots. The rose is gorgeous. I do hope she finished the knitting before attempting to wear the sock.:)

Nice pic of the rose and the orange leaf.

Nice colorful photos. My wife always takes her needles everywhere and makes socks for the both of us.

genie said...

What beautiful macro . colorful shots. They are awesome. Oh, how I wish I could still knit my socks. I loved it until the arthritis got the best of me from years and years of knitting. I always wore one of one sock pattern and one of another. That was my claim to fame.LOL I loved wearing different one. It was such fun. I can remember so well putting them on like this trying them on for the length. Beautiful yarn. genie

Revrunner said...

I was gonna say--kinda spiky! :-)

Stephanie said...

Beautiful shot of the rose.

Cloudia said...

Shape! Color! Socks! You are eclectic and that isn't a bad thing

Rose said...

I love those first two shots and the last makes me chuckle...

Michelle said...

That sock photo is pretty funny :)

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

I also always have my camera!!! I look forward to seeing your letter of the week, I think she was saying hi!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

You find your alphabet letters in the most unique way EG :) your knitting family member made me smile.. OR, it could have been your photo ,:)

edenhills said...

Love the H! I'm sure the fairy was just spelling Hi from the other side of the leaf. That rose is stunning! I am amazed at anyone that can take yarn and turn it into something. It is way beyond my skills. Fun photo! Thank you so much for joining me for Friday's Hunt.

Patty Woodland said...

A beautiful rose - they are such gorgeous flowers. Maybe your wood fairy is dyslexic.

Ralph said...

The 'H' is artistic, and what can one say about such a lovely red rose - perfect for a day of romance!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

You're still amazing me with where you're finding the alphabet letters. Somebody loves you to buy such a gorgeous rose, would love this one in the garden and at our flower show. ;-)

Jim said...

Even though it's Saturday night I had to come see the natural "H". It looks fine, nice leaf picture. The sock looks like it will be pretty. If she left the toes open it could be worn either way, making it last longer. I never noticed that before.

Jeevan said...

Really great finding on the H in shadow! Excellent light and rusted leaves... also nice work with the rose

Alica said...

Very creative "H" find...and that sock looks like it would be warm and comfy! Wish I knew how to do that!
