My Internet connection has been down for two days. *grumble*
There is a nice man from Verizon here working on it. I thought I might try a quick post while he's still here. You know how these things go: man comes to fix broken machine, machine works normally while man is in the house, machine ceases to work once man leaves. . . It has happened to me too many times in the past to have any confidence.
I have been knitting a sock for a swap pal.
The thing is I "outed" myself to her a few days ago when I inadvertently sent her an e-mail from my "Through The Loops" e-mail address. (Lesson learned: Don't talk to your spouse on the phone and send e-mails at the same time.) Luckily she doesn't normally read my blog and has promised to stay away until after the reveal. As I post these photos I hope she is able to resist the temptation. I know I would have a hard time. (I always managed to find my mom's gift hiding places when I was a kid.)
What's a sock in progress post without a gratuitous vodka bottle shot?
Pattern: My own design. I'm thinking I'll call it "Belvedere" after the vodka that is so proudly modeling it.
Yarn: STR lightweight, color: Brick.
I won a contest over at Nova's yesterday. I get to choose a yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts or Knit Purl. I'd better go have a look while I've still got a connection. . .
