Summer of Socks

So I know I've told you that we are in the midst of a site redesign and a lot of sock knitting as a result. That's been taking some energy. Also the gardening. Lots of gardening! But you have been patient with me and my absences the past few weeks, so I thought I'd let you see some of the new socks in some of their new pictures as captured by Natalie and modeled by the not-so-dainty-ankled...me!
The updated Red Rover Cabled Socks pattern is all edited and ready for purchase.
These are made with Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Pacific.
As is the Vertigo Socks pattern...
made with Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga in Figeater
and the Seagull Socks pattern.
made with Schaefer Audrey in Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

And now for some bloopers!
Yeah, I thought this shot would look nice. No. My left foot looks like a big old ham hock.
Here's a tip: if you already know you don't have the skinniest of ankles, trying to pose on tippy-toe will only make your ankles look more chunky. That's what I found out.

Thanks to Nat for indulging me. I know sometimes she must know I have funny notions and she doesn't let on, sweet girl.

Now, I would like for you to go and visit the present Figheadh site, because I want you to remember how last decade's hairstyle it looks. In a couple of weeks you're going to see something much better at www.figheadh.com!  I'll keep you updated.
