Lizard Lady

They're still a bit damp, but I had to put them on. These socks are squishy and comfy. I can't wait to spend a snowy Saturday wearing them.

The new love in my life is the afterthought star heel. I am the strange kind of person who actually looks forward to grafting toes, but I wanted to try something new. I did one sock with K2tog and one with SSK for funsies.

The effect of the short rows is much more subtle with the Noro yarn, but you can still see it if you look. The rhythm of the knitting is addictive. The "bubbles" pushed me through each pattern repeat, kind of like entrelac. Just one more...

I wish my husband was here to take great photos of my finished projects. I'm not a photographer and neither are the kids.

The socks look great! My goal is to improve my photo skills. I want better pics and would love to buy a new camera.
