Well lookie there.  The power of a little (gentle) public motivation is pretty impressive. Toes.  Two of them.  Ends all woven in and blocked and everything!  We'll just sort of ignore how one toe is distinctly red and the other distinctly purple.  That's just the sort of thing that happens from time to time.  Instead we'll focus on Lovely New Socks for the sock basket. And, since the pattern is already out, I get the unspeakable luxury of just wearing them, right away, rather than carefully setting them aside until I can manage photos.  I may have to just wear [...]

So That Was Fun!

Oh you guys are awesome!  Launching a new book is always ridiculously scary (it seriously hits every one of my 'what if I throw a party and no one comes?' buttons).  But you totally didn't let me down.  I'll be keeping the mailman very busy next week, thank you! But somehow, in the shiny new book dance, I didn't properly show off the awesome socks that everyone who preorders Fine Things is getting.  I should totally fix that!  Allow me to introduce Changeful. Except that picture doesn't quite do them justice (nifty as it is), because Changeful is really three [...]
