Some random Knitty thoughts

G'day all!

I have been working nearly all day on these silly pics for Knitty. Of course I can't just stick my socks on a bush or get a line up of feet for them, no I have to be all fancyschmancy.

So far, I've created these:





and one other which I forgot to upload.... It has a screened fireplace in it. Fear not, no socks were harmed in creating that picture (though I think my brain has been harmed).

Are they not gloriously tacky? I am starting to wonder why I am bothering! My ideas seemed good at the time but after 8 or 9 hours fairly much attached to the computer with DH whining at me....

I have so many other things I need to get done at this point - I think I'll give up and get the washing off the line and plant the blood orange before it dies and bring my backpack in from where it is "airing" and start planning what to take to WA with us. We'll be away a few days and the poor puddy tats will have no humans to love them. Ack, haven't set up the litter trays for them. At least they will get fed once a day. And they will have nice places to sleep. No nasty humans to kick them off the bed, but no nice humans to turn the heater on either.

anon!

  3. OK, Lynne. Apparently I was way behind on your posts because I've been reading back and back and I think I've missed the last three. There's so much information in them and taken together it's all pretty random. So my random comments are: Gorgeous rovings, interesting boobage comments, haircut?, what job?, and nice socks.

    I am paying attention. I swear.

  9. That's hilarious. I did the same thing, I was supposed to be studying for an exam I had this morning, but instead yesterday I was taking my knitting out for a stroll looking for photo ops!
