Knitting A Sock A Day Keeps Insanity At Bay

Or so they say.

My question is: How does one photograph one's own feet?

My first pair of hand knitted socks

It's much more difficult than it would seem. If only I could take my feet off and then put them back on.

Knitted socks

Then I could take better photos of my first pair of hand knitted socks.

They're really basic, but I love them. Next I'd like to knit socks toe-up in something other than stockinette stitch. With Koigu. Mmmmmmmm....Koigu!

Long Live Hand Knitted Socks! (and crazy people)

Pattern used: a Red Heart Heart & Sole free pattern leaflet from Joann Fabrics.

i love these. i just finished up a test knit sweater (Collins by Baby Cocktails) and my Mom got me started on a pair of socks. Although I think I'm going to give them to her to do the heel - that sounds incredibly complicated. we'll see how this goes on those size 1 needles (using bugga sock yarn....)

I love your socks! Great colors and they look like they'll keep your feet toasty. I was bored during a power failure the other night and took photos of my feet. I sat on my bed with my legs out on front of me. I ended up with boring pictures. Yours are way more fun!
