In other news, the PT socks (i.e., socks for my personal trainer) are done! Finally, a finished objects in these parts! It was hard to photograph them without putting them on my feet. Since they are a size or so smaller than my foot, it was ugly when I acted as the model. Think sausage feet. Eek. I don't have sock blockers either. Which kind of sucks. I did try to whip up a pair out of card board, and the result was uninspired. I didn't have any metal hangers lying about, so there yah have it. Socks looking funny for pictures.
As you may recall, TWG made matching mittens. Unfortunately, the two pairs have not yet been united so there is no photographic evidence of their matchiness. Which is just fine, and not all that unfortunate, because the mittens, they outshine the socks. So better keep 'em separated.
I really like the contrasting color bits and think they match quite nicely, but not too much. The socks were a delight to knit, though weaving in all of the ends sucked big fat rotten eggs. Me no likey the weaving!
These socks are fun socks. They like to play and party and attack small plastic animals. Animals that were one of the gifts from Crazy. Speaking of gifts from Crazy, today I found this on my desk ...
Another day, another gift. I will say that thus far, this was the best of the lot. It is a box of three Gorham teddy bear ornaments for Lady Bean. Weird, as the Lady Bean still has to cook a whole hell of a lot more. Also, I really feel slightly stalked. But this is a nice thought. At least that is what I am telling myself.
