texture collecting

Mountain Man and I went for a ramble in the Western Mcdowells this weekend. I had a good time collecting textures in nature.

Dog nose


Dried grasses


Wizened, silvered wood



Lichen


I worked on my Shalom cardigan for the drive; I could knit for the first hour heading northeast out of Phoenix, although I couldn't concentrate for the long drive in on the rutted dirt road. I did manage to finish the yoke on the drive up there, and I think it's looking good.

I know the photo's not that exciting, though. A dog nose is a hard act to follow
