The Luminare socks are finished at last. I think I started them some time in September, as I remember being laughed at by ignoramuses on the train, going to the Show. Finished last week, worn a couple of times already and finally photographed today.
All those people who take beautiful artistic shots of their own feet clad in new socks have my utmost admiration. I wrestled with chairs, the self timer and the hoiking up of my pants to show off the socks and took about eleventy gazillion shots before settling for that one. Yes, I am listing to starboard, and yes that is a wardrobe door knob lying on the floor behind me. Also, the shoes need polishing. Let's just say ... keeping it real.
I love these socks. Great pattern, stretchy cably lace (without a cable needle!) and gorgeous yarn bought from The Knittery and hand dyed by me yes I am so very clever. And modest.
