A Few More Things

Yet another pair of self-striping socks off the needles and at the ready:

(I'm still no brilliant photographer, but hopefully you get the idea!)

My latest chain mail success - very pretty, and not very difficult at all:

Last, but not least - bear legs!

You'll see the rest of the bear before too much longer.  The pattern is written for flat knitting, and I'm trying to change it up to do most of it in the round (why not, and skip all that unnecessary seaming?).  This is our Thing A Month for September, which I feel has "bearly" started.  Hah!

Heard At My House Yesterday Afternoon

(Me, rummaging around in the attic.)

Mr. Oogy (from downstairs):  What are you doing up there?

Me:  Looking for bear eyes.

Mr. Oogy: Oh, OK. (seeming to lose interest)

Only the husband of a yarn person would remain undisturbed by this sort of conversation.

Must... Post.... Something....

Dear Neuro,

You'll just have to take my word for it, I've been working on lots of things over the past few weeks, and I will (eventually) have something to show for it, just not at the moment...

In the meantime, in an attempt to burst through (or at least meander over) the logjam, here is a photo of one of the pairs of self-striping socks:

Meanwhile, we're 9 days into September and I barely (haha) have anything started for this month's Thing!

Could be worse - at least I've survived my first full week of coursework. I'm sure you could live without seeing a picture of that :)

Stay tuned for more pics!
