PHEW!!!

Can you guess what this is?

Answer at end of post.


Ahhh. It finally came to me. The camera was at my Aunt's house. Thank goodness because we had exhausted every last crook and crevice in this house and the car. I even looked at work - duh duh dunnnnhhhh. That is a job and a half, let me tell you.

Here is an example of the vibrancy that is Cotillion:

When I saw how very flamingo/electric pink this yarn is I thought it would be perfect for my other Aunt (pictured at left). And then once the sock was begun I suddenly thought "Does she wear socks?" I have asked about 5 family members and none of us can remember seeing her in socks. Don't get me wrong - she is not some sort of animal, or preternaturally hot being - she simply wears high heels and bejewelled sandals at ALL times. I wonder what she did when it was snowing in Vancouver?

I am still going to knit the socks and see what to do with them when they are
complete.

It feels so durned good to have a camera again. I was really feeling out of sorts with my pictureless blog. (Pssst - if you think you might have the answer to my plaguing questions, post a comment...Richard!! You cheeky rogue!)

It was a macro of Luc's Bubble Kimono.



Finally on the home stretch with this thing. Garter stitch is torturously slow progress. Honestly, I WOULD rather watch paint dry. This little sweater has felt interminable.

Oh, so glad that you found your camera again - and the macro looks amazing, as amazing as the kimono actually - what a beautiful pattern!
Your auntie seems to be such a fun lady - I'm sure she'd love socks in these funky colours, and hey - I'd say in Canadian winters she just HAS to wear socks ;)
