Best Friends Forever

We make friends throughout our lives. It is reassuring to know that it's still possible in my thirties to make a new best friend. Someone special enough to make me giggle and think the term BFF ( best friends forever) is cute (and applicable).
When D and I met, it was clear we were kindred spirits, long lost sisters and probable partners in all sorts of future mischief and fun.
When D became pregnant with her first and her feet started to swell, I realized who I was knitting these socks for. So happy almost birthday mama to be D.

Pattern: BFF by Cookie A.
Yarn: BMFA Socks that Rock-Mediumweight in 'Farmhouse'
and Koigu KPPPM for toes and heel
Needles: US 1.5, 2.5 mm

Urban Decay

I searched and searched for a Martha Stewart worthy backdrop for this photo shoot but instead I was blessed with wind and a tiny bit of sun at the end of the day in the local baseball diamond. I kinda like the results.
My NEW camera has amazingly zippy shutter speed and it was fun snapping away as the blanket danced away for me.
The blanket is, in real life very far from industrial. It is soft and thin yet warm with lovely drape. I hate my seaming but I hate seaming in general so probably it's not so bad it's just me wishing for unattainable seamless-ness.
More juicy details (disasters and all) for Ravelry users here. This has been a long drawn out one and I felt tremendous relief in moving it out of the knitting basket and onto the couch.

Pattern: Block Striped Afghan by Sarah Dallas
Needles: US 6, 4.0mm

Lost Camera..So Sad

I cannot find my digital camera. I tore my house apart this weekend to no avail. I have FOs...alas
Electronics are all so leetle these days..they need homing devices for people like me:)
