Knitting Paradise and the Amazing Generosity of Strangers

Hey there,

Over the last couple of months I have been trying to find things to create passion in my life… I guess that is the perpetual mission of my blog. I have wanted to write this post for a while and I am so glad I am actually getting to it!

The first half of my newly created knitting, spinning and relaxation corner.

In September, after creeping a great knitting forum called knittingparadise.com I decided to start a Swap for Canadian knitters.

S. Walks! – Collage

Caroline commented that one of my photos would look better if I cropped it and suggested I download Picasafrom Google. I am somewhat of a PhotoShop girl, but have not been able to purchase a copy and am not happy with the online version. So when I was directed here I was a bit sceptical, but I have to say that it is a good, if basic, photo editing system One thing that gives it an edge in comparison with some other free suites I have tried that you have the ability to create albums and orginize your pics from the same place you edit them. So… I checked it out, and really can’t thank Caroline enough.

I have been playing around with Picasa  for a few days (Click here to download Picasa from Google) and while it is quite basic it does some interesting things. I was really impressed with the collage feature that allows you to upload as many photos as you’d like into one file and automatically arranges all of them into a collage style jpeg file. There are a few different options for the collage format and you can also apply all the effect available for single photos to the collage as a whole.

S. Walks! – May 12, 2011

Today was a very uninteresting day. It was rainy-ish out so I only walked once today. I hate grey days, especially when there is that damp cold that seeps into your bones. Today was like that, so I stayed in bed. I actually ended up sleeping for a couple of hours, but I woke up with a headache and feeling really groggy so I just lazed around. Anyways, now it is almost 1 am and I can’t sleep so I thought I would quickly post some photos from a brighter day.

These are from my walk yesterday… Er, technically two days ago being  after midnight now… Without further ado here are the images… Enjoy! 😀
