See, I wasn’t fooling you all along. I have a real camera, I promise. And I do know how to use it (pretty well, actually). It just seems that my camera is never where I need it, but my phone is. Phones take substandard pictures of kniting, I am aware. But they get the point across.
The above is a picture of my mom’s vegetable garden this morning. We have had an uncharacteristically dry spring, but the weekend rain (plus yesterday’s) has helped a lot. I can’t wait to eat all of that stuff!
This morning I decided to do some real photography. Look!
These are the first socks I made for myself. They are the second socks I ever made. The heel flap was a little strange (don’t ask what pattern, I’ve forgotten), but they have served me well for the past two years. I put them on today and they made me smile, so I thought I would share.
Ta-da! The first of the Sampler Texture Socks, finished! I’ve never done a star toe before, but its so simple! I liked it, but we’ll see how it feels when I’m wearing them.
This right here is the heel flap. Remember that, the Eye of Partridge one? As you can see, mine seems to start with some type of ribbing, go to something else, then end as the ribbing. Does anyone know what it’s supposed to look like? Obviously I don’t care too much, since this sock is finished; I’m just curious. Eye of Patridge…. maybe I should have paid more attention, but I was tired and the %$@#$^* thing should have worked itself out, like every other stitch pattern.
…I don’t think I should try lace if I can’t do a lousy heel flap properly.
