Yarn on Thursday - Photo Miscellany

Due to my recent spate of illness, thankfully receding, I haven't had time to put together a proper Yarn on Thursday, so here are my eight favorite "beautiful knitting" photos from a Google image search of same, and links to what/where they are.

Susie Z. posted a photo of two lovely dishcloths by ashestoashes that she received in a Dishcloth Swap on Craftster.

Fireflower Knits's Reversible Cabled Brioche Stitch Scarf. Yay for pretty with pretty pattern attached!
Black Bunny Fibers started in mid-March, 2006, and she posted this photo (and several others) on her Etsy One Year Anniversary. She's got her own website now, of course - click the first link above to get there.

Back in 2006, Margeurite (Stitches of Violet) gave this sweater her "on-the-cutting-edge knitter award" to Kathy Zimmerman, for this sweater. It's still really cool.
Hildegard's Peruvian Adventure is a brief travelogue of her journey to Peru. Macchu Pichu, Lake Titicaca, all those places you've heard of in stories. And, of course, she found local crafters:

Misti Alpaca has some really cute baby alpaca. And if you click on that link? Some lovely lace weight 100% baby alpaca yarn. I just love it when a pretty photo turns out to be linked to a place to get pretty for myself!
Mountain Mom does AMAZING work. She's doing her masters (or was at the time this photo was relevant), and I'm totally bookmarking her blog as a visual reference. This square is just exquisite! She's totally allowed to have "beautifulknitting" as her blog name!
Finally, Lupie made these stunning gloves.

Yay, at least there are pretty photos and links for you this week! (Going off to Nap Now!)
