Some Progress Pictures

So, my battery charger doesn't seem to be working. This sucks on so many levels.

Anyhow, I finally got some pictures off my battery-eating camera.

This was what I was going to show you all a few days ago. It's my entry for Project Spectrum's August. My first try at booties, and I'm just mashing together what I've learned from sock-making thus far, as I had no bootie-pattern.

This would be where I am today.

Don't let the wonders of photoshop and bad picture-taking fool you, I have yet to Kitchner the toes.

I'm lazy like that. I may wait until #2 is done...which might not be until sometime in September as I've been picking up this little guy every so often now:
He's been my "computer waiting" sock. You know, what you do while waiting for your pages to load, programs to open, documents to save? Right. My, he has come a ways... It's the Dublin Bay sock I started back in, um, May? Yarn-Overs and that "lace" stuff is not all that easy to me takes more concentration than the ribbing I've done in the past...which is why this little guy has been "waiting in the wings" for so long. I mean, I do have to say that I really like this yarn ("Basic Merino Socks" whose pattern I didn't use, by Fleece Artist) over the Lorna's I'm using for the's just so much softer! But then again I'm using US 0s for the booties as I'm going to be a bit rough-and-tumble with them in my Vans, VS my Winter Dock Martin with woolen socks habit. Or something.

I'm making excuses, whatever. Maybe I'm just too chicken to say I'm starting to like the lacy bit? Took long enough, eh?

Okay, the goal is to finish cleaning off my desk today...don't faint, I know, me, clean my desk of doom? Where things (like bills?) go to die? NO! Scandalous!

Your bootie looks great! (Okay, that sounds like a rather personal comment to make, doesn't it?!)

I really like the Dublin Bay sock, too. Hmmm...I haven't picked up my socks for a long, long time. I feel guilty now.

That bootie is awesome - especially given that you had no pattern!

I love that you have a "computer wait" sock!
