1 -3 are from the Mountain View Farmers Market, 4 & 5 are from Tegan’s school, 6 – 8 are from playing in the backyard with Bailey (the puppy) and Tegan (where I took the opportunity to take a wip photo of Karen’s socks, 9-11 are from the Vital Tea Leaf in Chinatown (San Fransisco, not Portland), 12-14 are from Japantown (San Fransisco) where I made Alexa model her finished socks (see the ravelry page), 15 is from the Lacis Museum in Berkeley (awesome place, spent way too much money there), and 16 is from Friday when I forgot my wallet and had to wait for Dad to bring it in (as I needed ID to deposit my paycheck).  And that’s everything that has been photographed.  Lot’s of other things have been happening (moving in, cleaning, writing a Newsletter, etc, etc).  But, for now, this is everything I’ve got.  I’ll try to post again this week with more details.  Honest :)

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
