Behind the Scenes at Casa TTL

My girls thought it was time you see what they have to put up with during our photo sessions.  At least they get a lot of hand knits in the deal.

What's Really Happening 1 Mystery Three 1


What's Really Happening 2 Mystery Three 2
I know we are almost a week past the end of Socktoberfest but I'v finally taken some finished photos of my TTL Mystery Socks .  I've only got one completed sock of each.

Left:  60 Stitch Basic Sock in Colinette Jitterbug, colorway Elephant's Daydream

Middle:  64 Stitch Cabled Sock in Dream in Color Smooshy, colorway GoGo Grassy

Right:  64 Stitch Basic Sock in Three Waters Farm Hand Painted Superwash Merino - I bought this yarn when I was visiting my mom in NC last summer.  Sorry the tag is long gone so I have no idea of the colorway.  This sock was the prototype that I knit last summer.  It has been voted most likely to have a mate since I'm past the gusset decreases on its partner.

There were many others half knit and ripped to test various sizes and versions.  These three represent the only ones completed.  Hopefully they'll each have a mate before next Socktoberfest!

PS Did you notice DD#2's new haircut?

The photos are so funny! I'd never thought about the contortions it would take to get such lovely shots!

They look like they're having fun to me.

They sure know how to have a good time!

Heehee...thanks for the peek behind the scenes. They look like more willing models than my little one.

That's hilarious. They seem to be taking the torture well.

Great pics! It's hard to tell from here but the yarn on the right looks surprisingly like the Yarn Pirate "Sagebrush" that I'm using on my husband's Charades: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/unpastis/charade

In real life, the color is much closer to your photo.

That just looks like a fun photoshoot! And I love the new 'do!

Your girls are such cuties.

I am hoping that my kids will have the same enthusiasm for modeling the knits as they get older--because seriously, nobody's kids model the knits like yours. I love the TTL socks,K. I have teh cuffs on the needles still...I couldn't decide to knit with cables or without. Also, I am pregnant and lazy. Yeah, that's it.

lovely girls and lovely knits.I love the colors of the hat and the mittens.
(well , be indulgent with my english)
you may visit my blog and write me comments ,it would be my pleasure

isn't Jitterbug the shit??? your girls are nutso.

She got her bangs!!!! Very very cute!

your girls are so cute. but i've already told you that.

i ended up completing one of each. the knitting of two socks one one needle sucked and i ended up having to frog their mates but i'll get them done soon.

hahahh they really have to work for their handknits :)
Love the hair!

Very cute hair! What scarf is that???

I like the look of that scarf - stranded garter stitch?

The girls look as if they are having a great time!

The photo shoot looks like fun. You're lucky they are so willing to participate!
The socks are fantastic and I am ALMOST finished!! eeee!

I love the behind the scenes shots!
Sometimes as I'm taking sock pictures (I take all my own with contorted positions or a self timer), I think, what if someone (non family/ non knitter) was watching me - they'd think I was crazy! You are so lucky to have 2 adorable willing models!

I love your kids; they're so great! The hair is so cute! What little mitts is she wearing? What about the scarf? You know you can't get away without telling. the socks are so pretty. What a fun KAL. Thanks!
