The Water Has Boiled, Finally

Well, here they are. I have never knit socks so slowly. I think it's the heat, it's day 5, or is it 6, of temperatures over 90 and it's too hot to do much. Especially with wool. I took these pictures on the front porch very early in the morning and I was sweating to death after just a few minutes. But I like the socks. Spring Forward in Opal on size 1 DPN's.




Try not to notice the cat hair, I was too sweaty to pick it off.




It's crazy what we knitters will do for a picture of socks.

Your Springies look great! There really is no easy way to photograph them on your own feet is there?

Well done for finishing them (and modelling them) in the heat! They look lovely, even with the cat hair embellishments!

Ha ha. My socks are always covered with cat hair!
You've done a great job! Thanks for braving the heat to bring us great sock pictures :-)

The socks look fantastic! I love the wavy pattern.

Kudos to you for braving the heat. I'm not sure I would have been so generous.
