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.

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!

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.

instagram redux


Since I can't seem to stop 'gramming,
I thought I should at least share some of the
sock images here, too!


I'm brilliant that way.
It just took a month to think of it!!
Hah!

The yarn is Victory Sock in Monet's Garden from Knitted Wit.
Cushy goodness!!

Pattern is Intrepid Traveler with a picot cuff.


Happy Tuesday!!

instagram problem


I seem to have fallen down the rabbit hole that is Instagram.
Please pull me out!!

But I have sock pictures, so that counts for something.


A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; 
an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

The first sock of 2015.
I've been posting to instagram a lot and thought I might try posting a 'gram' here, too.
I hope it works and looks ok!

Yarn: RSC 2014 club 'forget me knots'
Pattern: embossed leaves.
I never get tired of this pattern...
...and this yarn!
