Back in September, I started my No More Short Socks Campaign. I say “campaign”, which makes it sound like a really big deal, like my socks were running for office or something, but it was really just my little thing.
I have the results of the first socks that adhere to the new rules: toe-up design (no yarn wasted), and massive yardage (Fearless Fibers gives you 550 yards of sock yarn).
The design is my own, called Bubbles Down the Drain. I’ll write up the pattern and make available soon.
|These socks feel so good! Snuggly wooly goodness all the way up to my knees.
Because I designed these socks to be a custom fit for anyone’s legs, they stay up!
|They stay up while waiting in line at the bank…|
|While reaching for a book off the top shelf…|
|Here’s the “during the photo shoot” story.
These socks are so long that I had to remove my jeans for the photo shoot. Abe brought my jeans into the dining room, and then tried to remove a tissue from my pocket by ripping a hole from the inside.
He still acts like such a puppy.
|Ike, of course, is too dignified to participate in any silly tissue-retrieving mission.
This has become Ike’s “spot”. I will forever have dog beds on my bed to keep him happy.
|One last note…I’ve decided to take part in a photo project on Flickr called 365days. The rules are that you have to post a self-portrait every day for one year – self-timers and tripods are fine, but no one else can click the shutter. I expect this to be an adventure in creativity and self-discovery.
