more of Cindy’s knitting! and other things.

I’m back again, with little news of my own. Cindy has released another pattern (she’s on fire) and when she called me last week, I could tell she needed pictures of her new socks right.that.second. I was in love with the socks the second she slipped them on her feet. Look!

Pattern: Knit Slouch Socks by Cindy Myska Colbert

Cute, right? And clever! The slouchy part of the sock is knit with a luxurious cashmere-angora-wool blend yarn (As payment for the photoshoot, I got a skein – it’s Noro Shiraito. Mmmmm.) and the foot is any old sock yarn you have around.

A while ago, I mentioned to Cindy that my goal was to write two patterns a month. That clicked with her, and she’s been designing really great things these last few months. Obvi, the same can’t be said for me, but I’m excited to see all the new designs she has come up with.

I guess I have news of my own, but nothing as exciting as slouchy socks. I just yesterday finished my first semester of school, and my prerequisites are officially done! When I start classes in the Fall it will be all photography, all the time.

I am knitting socks.

Pointelle from Knit. Sock. Love by Cookie A. My mom bought me some gorgeous yarn, String Theory Merino DK, and on a US 2 over 60 sts, they fit. The socks look big, they are big, and they fit me. ERGO I have boats for feet. I’m over it.

Lastly, I had a second engagement shoot with my cousin and her fiance in downtown Greensboro.

Laura & Jim

Much like the first time, they were adorable.  Actually even more so!

  1. The more I see these socks the more I want to knit them! Way to go Cindy!

    Finishing your college classes for the semester is a HUGE deal! Way to go!

    You’ve accomplished more than me lately…I’ve got keeping myself alive and not much else.

  2. Great picture of Laura and Jim. Love your socks and the slouchy socks, guess I should just say I love it all!
