adventuring


You know what that ball of yarn means, right?

Drumroll, please...


An FO!!


I took the socks out for a drive on a sunny afternoon
a few weekends ago, and stopped for coffee
and a photoshoot.


Good times were had by all!

Sock details:
Intrepid Traveler pattern by me
with mods for a picot cuff and linen stitch heel
Victory sock yarn in Monet's Garden from Knitted Wit

Cast on and take yourself and your socks on an adventure!


Only those who risk going too far 
can possibly find out how far they can go.

a new action


A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. 
If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.
~ Anthony Robbins

Finally.
Something new on the needles.

Here are the details:

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

home stretch


The Embossed Leaves socks are finished!! woo hoo!
They are knit in BMFA STR (RSC May forget-me-knots).

Love them!!


I can't believe how long it has taken me to finish up the Intrepid Traveler socks!!
I don't think I want the knitting on them to end as I lovelovelove
the yarn (knitted wit Victory sock in Monet's Garden).

I actually took these pictures several weeks ago and just haven't processed them.
I'm already to the gusset of the second sock...home stretch!!


I don't think I have ever photographed a picot cuff as much as I have this one.
I love picots. I love photographing picots.
I love photographing photographs of picots.

It's infinitely entertaining.

I hope you'll bear with me a wee bit longer!!


Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.

pixels 'n prose


How strange that the nature of life is change,
yet the nature of human beings is to resist change. 
And how ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us 
are the very ones that can break us open and help us 
blossom into who we were meant to be.
~ Elizabeth Lesser

spring



A little iPhonography today.

And a sock of course!
Despite all the images of the cuff (picots are just too photogenic!)
 progress is being made. 
I finished one sock, and the second one is on the needles!!

Intrepid Traveler in Monet's Garden Victory Sock yarn from Knitted Wit.
Love. it.

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn

restoration

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
~ Albert Einstein 

a little knitting.
a little hot cocoa.
a little music.

Things don't seem so difficult now.

Happy Friday.
