well it wasn't the tour de france but it was fun...
Do you all find socks hard to photograph? They look strange without feet in them, but it's hard to photograph your own feet. And it's hard to come up with a good pose for your feet - if only I knew more ballet positions perhaps. Today I tried the self timer and placing the camera on the floor. The only problem with that is you can see how dusty dirty our floors are with giant dustbunnies roaming the plains of the living room. But I digress...
pattern: your basic 64 stitch toe up recipe with short row heels. I like heel flaps better, but I think the short row heels look better on the stripy socks.
yarn: stripes of Noro Kureyon sock yarn colors 184 and 95
verdict: Love the fraternal striping action - these amuse me to no end.
In other finishing news, my friend Lisha and I had a great time on our 62 mile charity bike ride. We were part of the amusingly named team, the "pink-yellows" which consisted of us, Lisha's husband Bobby and our friend Nate who both did the 100 mile route. When they left for their ride, an hour before us, the sky was threatening with rain and it looked pretty unpleasant, but when we left at 8:00am the sky had cleared considerably and we all had beautiful weather. I hadn't gotten as much training in due to general work business and super humid weather, but I surprised myself by finishing the ride in good shape. Everyone volunteering and riding were so nice, and the route was beautiful, going through Haverhill, Amesbury, New Hampshire, Ipswitch and Boxford.
As for the raffle for the Webs gift certificate, I'll be holding that on Thursday. If you're still interested in donating to Emmaus and getting a raffle ticket, you can do that through Wednesday. Here is the donation page. Thanks so much to everyone who donated to the ride, I really appreciate your support. I'll leave you with a photo of team pink -yellows.
