Finished Objects and Photos

Please don't faint! Yes, I know it is totally out of character for me, but, yes, I did accomplish several things today, including some knitting stuff!

I finished the toes on both of my Ocean Toes Socks. Me! I finished a pair of socks in under a year!!!!!!!!!! They are very pretty, however, i hate the star toe. hate it. pulled out the first finished sock with its very stupid modifications (i really need to think things through once in a while!) and did it as Cat directed. Really though, it just doesn't fit my wide flat fat toes very well. 

my mother on the other hand (modeling them in my photos) LOVES how they fit. she may just get them and i'll make a pair for myself with the standard toe. don't tell her that though! 
i'm thinking they may go in her teacup for mothers day. she'll be ecstatic.

I love them! SO PRETTY!

Well, I finally took a picture of my EZ bog jacket now that it is 65% finished.
I love how this yarn pooled!
 I tried alternating balls but i really just liked this better. I can't wait to finish it. I bought some darker blue Heirloom Easy Care 8-ply to edge it with. 

I think that may be all for now......

happy knitting

I also dislike the star toe...a LOT. I think toe up fits best but for top down socks, I prefer the standard toe shaping. ;)
