Two Socks

And.....done.

My socks, made from Mallika 100% superwash Merino, by Yarn Ahoy. I know there are lots of shadows here...the front room has great sun in the morning, but it's often a bit intense and of course at a low angle, and this is the result. I'd tell you that I'll do better next time, but knowing my photographic skills, I'd say that this is about as good as it gets. Unless I start taking pics on the back deck again, and there is *no* way that's happening until at least March. Maybe April, even.


There was, however, another shadow, off to the left,


which had nothing at all to do with the socks, except that there was a slow determination, little by little,

inch by inch,



to ruin the shot.
It's okay.

She's just trying to get in on some of that solar heating action. Who can blame her, seeing as it's 11 degrees F today (-11 C)? There's enough sun for all of us.

Those are great socks. I sympathize about your feline assistant. Mine is always trying to lay on the knitting before I can photograph it. :)
