So, how about some gratuitous pictures of some of my recent knitting projects?
I will warn you, I’m not a great photographer. Hell, I’m doing good if I can hold my hands steady enough that you can even tell what it’s a picture of.
I very rarely knit a matched pair of socks. I just get bored too easily to knit the second sock, so I knit mismatched socks. I usually don’t even bother making sure I have two from the same yarn/colorway.
This is actually a crescent-shaped shawl, but I couldn’t get it to lie right for the picture. I love the off-center design of this one. I wish I’d done it in more subtle colors, but I doubt I’ll knit another version–there’s only so much garter stitch I can knit before I start to go crazy from the sheer boredom.
Again with the not lying right for pictures. I also probably shouldn’t have photographed it on the grass because it made the yarn look bluer than it is–it’s actually a gorgeous, very saturated emerald green. I cast this on immediately after finishing my Color Affection, which was dumb because this one’s just 500 miles of stockinette stitch. Not much different, boredom-wise, than 500 miles of garter stitch. But it was worth it because it came out absolutely gorgeous.
