It is just as shiny and lovely as it looks on the monitor. It looks very much like my cat Mia who would NOT be photographed with it. I followed her around with a camera and handful of the fiber waiting for the right shot in just the right light......but she got tired of the Paparazzi action and lashed out-like any starlet would. No pictures...PLEASE! I was not the winner in that scuffle.
I have been doing a little sock knitting on the side as I can carry it from job to job easily. Here is my Bayerische
and Latvian socks from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush. This is more of a pumpkin or paprika shade rather than the glaringly hunter-safety-orange that it looks like in this photo.
And for my Fair Isle friends.....more pictures to follow tomorrow. :0) I have a special one for you, Brigitte!
