Self Portrait Tuesday

I tried to capture my socks AND the little funky project I was working on, but couldn't quite manage it. So, socks it is. These were actually made for me by my mom, she couldn't remember the yarn, but I love them. This is my standard knitting position: legs up on the coffee table, Ott light over right shoulder. (Could also explain my sciatic nerve irritation on the left side....might have to remedy this somehow......)

Zeroing in

Okay, I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel with some projects. Here is the nearly complete Muse cardi by Louisa Harding. The first pic is the lace edging pinned on, the second pic is about three hours later. (Not continuously sewing, thankfully!) It just needs the sleeve edging to be done, and a button loop. I am thinking of just doing a couple of rows of garter stitch around the sleeve rather than the 4-5 inch edging the pattern calls for. (Oh, anda the funky little snowman in the first shot? A little sculpture my daughter tickled me, the snowman is on a snowboard, and just a cool little dude. Hmmm, my own muse?)
