Just saying that this week is definitely better than last week. My homework is nearly done (either tonight or tomorrow morning so I can enjoy this week's wedding with good conscience) and my order from Zappos came in.
Now I have at work shoes I can wear my hand knit socks in. They are comfy and do not make wearing socks look dorky. That honor is reserved for the sandals I normally gad about in.
I must say that taking pictures of your own feet at this angle is not an easy task. I have shaky hands too, so blurry shots are all the rage.
They are Dr. Scholl's "Dance." And inside are the socks I received in Sockapaloooza 3. This way I get to wear them, others can admire them and the cat can't try to destroy them. A beautiful blend.
And because I can't really resist. An artsy Photofiltre shot. Photofiltre is a PC-based shareware program that can do batch editing and photo manipulation. Nearly all of my buttons and pictures are at the very least resized in it. It has a lot of similar features to Photoshop, which I still want for my Mac.
In Sock Saving news, I am nearly done with the first of the Ripple Weave socks. I'm past the gusset and will be trying to motor (one of the reasons to get my homework done early - if I don't work on it consistently I spend an entire weekend working on it instead of just a few hours).
My sock savior pal is about the same size in the foot as I am, so I was able to try it on in progress and provided I don't run out of yarn I should be able to wash, block and mail the socks without a hitch. They are a little loose on me, but not by much. Something that kind of alarmed me, because I was afraid that the pattern wouldn't draw in enough. I mean, 72 stitches is a lot for socks! At least narrow footed socks like these.
Out of the ashes of last week's misery (the wedding and brief birthday celebrations were definitely highlights), comes a week like this one. Everything from class and work to knitting is all coming together in a harmonious whole.
Now just to make sure that I get dinner in reasonable fashion. Yum, food! Yeah, Peapod order! Horray for lovely husbands who sometimes have dinner waiting when you get home. And huzzah for video games and knitting for the long commute home.
Vivat! Vivat! Vivat!
