My my - after months and months of black and white, I offer you PHOTOS!!!
Two days in a row.

Blue photos. At least, the teenager at Wal-mart’s 1 hour photo booth made them as blue as possible. Here is the Christmas sock. It is purple - but you wouldn’t know it to look at this shot. Still - it does display the pattern, a simple slip stitch pattern over 6 stitches and 6 rows. For some reason this is just enough predictable repetition to fool my brain into thinking that it knits quickly, unlike 62 rows of stockinette, even using self-striping yarn. A candidate for Bess’ Whip That Thing UP Knitting Award.

Here is the Anny Blatt sweater, not quite finished, because I dread completion so and we haven’t yet had a frost. It’s a very warm sweater. We will have plenty of cold evenings in the Frozen Northwest of my house. Just not in October.

When I was finished I had this much of the angora blend left. Whatever made me think this would make a sweater to fit me 35 pounds ago. I hate it when my natural tendency to deny what I look like is so blatantly revealed. Where is blissful ignorance, hmm?

And here is


Bricca The Aran

She too languishes on the needles, but honest and true, really! I am working on obligatory knitting. I am always impressed by cables. I like how this design looks knit up in wool much better than in the cotton blend of the designer's choosing. And fondling this much Cashmerino Aran is a delicious tactile experience.

No musing thoughts today. I’m running behind on my real (read here "earns me money") work and plan on dashing off a Director’s Report for the board sometime between now and 4 o’clock.
