sock photo shoot

I've been finding it so quick and easy to just snap photos with my iphone and upload them at the tap or swipe of a little finger.
So for a long time my sooper dooper DSLR camera has been languishing in its bag. This morning I decided to remind myself of how much nicer the photos can be when I make just a little more effort.
I left the settings on auto and snapped away. I do love this camera.

FO progress report - A cardigan and some socks

Never Too Hot to Stitch!

I suppose it shouldn't come as a surprise that February is a short month as it is (almost) the same length every year.  But February was a month of getting waylaid by projects other than the previously stated FO goals.
I did complete my Shifting Focus cardigan (on 2 March, but that still counts as February right?).
This cardigan was started back in November with the goal of finishing it off in one month for NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater in a Month) but that didn't happen.  However it's done now.

And see that little pink blob of knitting in the bottom left of the picture?  That's Aunty M's cardigan-in-progress which has been the main distraction.

I have one other FO to share for February.  A simple pair of stripey socks.

New socks. From leftovers.

So let's sweep the un-met February goals under the Axminster carpet and start afresh with a new set of goals for March.
1. Finish the back and one front of Aunty M's cardigan.
2. Spin a skein of black fleece.
3. Finish the Noodlehead go-anywhere bag (which was partially cut out some time last year).
