ArtFire fires away!

Hi friends, long time no post! I got on a photography tear today - probably inspired by watching my friend's son so she could do some photography work - and re-photographed and listed a bunch of items on my ArtFire site. Check it out here... linky-link-link!

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure...

I am blazing away on my Jaywalkers. I'm about 30 rows into the second one, but I have to keep moving quickly since these are technically my May socks - so I have 2.5 socks to go before the end of June!

I bought some beautiful Malabrigo yarn this weekend: Ravelry Red in their wonderful sock yarn. I can't decide what to do - socks, or shawl? shawl, or socks?? Hmmm!

2011 and still no flying cars.

What is UP with that?? I am very disappointed in science.

What have I been doing lately? LIVING. Not blogging about it, but LIVING.

Bradley and I in October...

Captain Jack & I at the same shoot...

Now, for knitting...

I FINALLY finished Branching Out for my mother. FINALLY. Blocked it using my wire set, and love the wire set.

I finished those red Austrian Socks, which felted in our new washer & dryer to the point that I can't wear them. Thankfully, my friend Jen has smaller feet than I, and she knits, so she is among The Knitworthy and will be receiving them as soon as I get them blocked [soon, Jen, I PROMISE!!].

Here they are, pre-felting:

For Christmas this year, we visited B's aunts & uncle who live in the Midwest. They live in a very small, quiet town, and I was able to knit to my heart's content! I finished the Waving Lace socks in KnitPicks Turtle Multi, and cast on the Padded Footlets for my brother.

I have a couple of other socks ready to go, but they are gifties, so I will post pictures after they are all blocked and in the mail to the recipients. No worries on the surprise factor; they know what they are getting, but I want to post nice pictures!
