A Brand New Woman…

Big Black Bumblebee

(Even better if you view it large.)

It is always amazing what a lot of good sleep, soup, and medicine can do for you. Today, for the first time since Friday, I feel somewhat normal. I have a voice. (I owe my Mom a phone call or two!) I don’t cough every time I speak. Yeah!

I’m about to photograph my latest projects, including the soon-to-be frogged sweater. I will be bringing it to Kid & Ewe too, for those that want to see it in person. I’ll be posting the photos later today.

I probably should have taken a photo of my latest sock last night before I did the heel. I did an Eye of Partridge heel, which was lovely, but I didn’t like how it looked with the cables. Because the start of a new round becomes the center back of the sock, if you looked closely, one cable column ended before the other one did. Things like that bother me. I also really wished I had continued the cables down the heel instead, since I almost always wear shoes without a back. I realized this, of course, after I turned the heel and picked up the stitches. Oops. I tried to rip it out, but it was almost impossible to get the stitches picked back up. Instead, I frogged the whole thing and started over. Fortunately, I am knitting it in Mountain Colors Bearfoot nearly-solid Rich Red, and I loooooove this yarn – so I don’t mind working it again. Plus the pattern is fun and easy to remember once you get going. I’m already done with two repeats out of seven. (I decided that six wasn’t quite long enough.)

Photos to come this evening!

Oh, your Dad will love the picture of the bumblebee! Can’t wait to show it to him. When do I get a pair of socks????

I already told him about the bee – I actually need to e-mail him the better photo of its back, because I was an all black bee. Very odd. This bee photo might make it into a frame by Christmastime. It counts as a handmade gift, right? I mean, I took the photograph…

As for the socks, Christmas *is* right around the corner, you know? 😉 Sssshhhhh…
