Scavenger Hunt

Erin is having a blog contest for yarn, and to be entered, you have to find items on a list, make a blog post and comment on her post with the link.

I decided to do it all with pictures that were already in my flickr account before the contest was announced, and as many as possible are from my travels. Enjoy!

A Knitter, knitting in public:
Kathy on the couch
From Arcadia's 7th birthday party

An ice cream cheese truck:
Denmark 005
Wednesday Market, Odense, Denmark

A sock:
Copenhagen 205
This pair of socks is in a museum!

A library card:
This is the only one I didn't find a picture for that already existed in my Flickr! account, so I am leaving it blank. If my Australia pictures were more organized and up, I probably have one of my temporary membership cards for either the Bowling Club or Beach Lifesaving Club where we ate dinner.

A ball of green yarn:
Denmark 003
Wednesday Market in Odense, Denmark, April 4, 2007 (there was lots of yarn shopping on my birthday!)

A bicyclist:
Malmo Sweden
in Malmo, Sweden, Sunday, April 1, 2007

A street sign:
Malmo Streetsign
A Swedish street sign

A flower:
Orchid in Maui

A public work of art:
Denmark 082

Denmark 109
A gargoyle in Arhus, Denmark, either on the corner of the theater or cathedral

Your reflection in an unexpected place:
Denmark 089
Arhus, Denmark, Good Friday 2007. My reflection in the window isn't exactly unexpected, but the place itself was unexpected. We were just out wandering Arhus while everything was closed for the Easter holidays, and came upon the one yarn store I had found information about before we arrived. My wool-dar was on full blast for this trip, and it paid off. I have many wooly treasures to remember my wonderful 25th birthday travels.

Someone in a catalog pose:
Picnic 001
for a hat catalog

family at the beach
I feel like I've seen this picture in a catalog, but with a family more svelte than mine.

A funny billboard or sign:
Books and Ale
Copenhagen, Denmark, March 31, 2007
Books and Ale, now that's my kind of business establishment! The only way to improve it would be to have a drunken knitter's night, like they do in Toronto.
