I will never make fun of those pictures again

Oh, I'll never make fun of those photos again. You know, those photos! The self taken, vanity shots of projects. You know - someone wearing their knitted items with great pride - but with horrible, horrible photographs.

Because, I took that photo today.

Darn - I just couldn't get the photo I wanted! Everyone that showed the detail got blurry or made my hair look even worse. Hmm.

Not a good idea!

Madge is a fun little overnight project - just something to knit while I watched Warehouse 13 reruns. 
I used up some leftover Rick's Red handspun but I'm still not crazy about the pill-box  hat shape. I may re-knit it or just donate it to a craft sale at my church. We'll see . . .

So - those blue socks I finished a little bit ago?

English Garden colorway

I finished the By Request Purple socks and then switched them for the Captain Daisy's Delight* blue socks. Same pattern, just purple and washable Berroco Comfort Sock. He may never notice . . .

*The blue socks were made out of a lovely Gypsy Wools Kona Fingering I bought out west last summer. Not machine washable at all!

Vacation knitting

Rule #1 of knitting: If you knit a pair of socks, 

Basic Ribbed socks

someone will snap them up. Surprisingly, Youngest Child and I apparently share a sock size.

Perhaps I'll make my next pair out of this loverly red sock yarn - a vacation-to-Pennsylvania souvenir:

Pagewood Farm's Really Red Yukon sock yarn

That's the ticket . . . girl colors!
