I can has camera?

The battery is behaving for the time being! I have photos! Of things! Here!

The Waving Lace socks from the Interweave sock book (25 Sensational Socks?). The one on the needles is the second one, and lots more stretchy at the first. I learned my lesson and cast on over more than one needle the second time around. The yarn is Fearless Fibers in Magenta (I believe). It’s awesomely soft, and really brilliantly magenta.

Waving Lace with Dunny (they’re these little vinyl figurines I collect. This one’s my favorite).

Detail of the pattern. The color is much more vibrant than this, but I’m in the office.

The Warlock socks that I’m knitting in tandem with the ChickenGoddess. The pattern is actually Garter Rib, but the colorway is Warlock (by Twisted Fiber Arts) and I like that name better. So does the Dunny.

And finally, the Rivendell socks, in Fearless Fibers Marrakesh superwash merino. I am sort of just okay with this. I’m proud of my progress, but they’re a little tight, and it’s often hard to see the pattern through all the beautiful color. I am thinking of frogging them and doing them again in something a little heavier and less variegated (and I’m really quite fine with knitting them again – this pattern is awesome so far).

And that’s pretty much what I’ve been working on. I’ve got a secret project I’ll post later, and a sweater that’s kind of on hold for the moment. The secret project has been taking up all of my knitting time lately, but it’s going fast. It’ll all make sense later, when I can talk about it.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
