April SOM finished

I finished my April socks last night, just in time for the new month.

These socks are knit in Malabrigo Sock Yarn. They are the softest socks I own, they were a pleasure to knit, the yarn just floats through your fingers. My concern is that they are so soft that they won't hold up to hard wearing but we won't know that till next winter. This color of blue is amazing, a vast array of colors all in this blue colorway.

I'm modeling these socks myself. I'm tired of laying them down flat or hanging them from a shrub in the yard. I need a sock model, my favorite one is in college a long way from I rolled up my jeans, slipped on the new socks and took photos of me. It wasn't easy but I'm up to the challenge!


  1. Just how, HOW did you manage to take a picture of your own feet like that? I've been trying to work it out, and nothing short of Houdini springs to mind!

  2. So, I'm standing on an old trunk, a bright window camera left, a silver reflector camera right and my camera is on a tripod. Then I pose and use the infrared shutter release, seems to have worked pretty well!

  3. Michaela, you have to understand that Pat's not like us. . . she has almost as much camera stuff as I have blue yarn . And she's good at it besides. On my list. . .
