Tuesday: self-portrait and weekend fun

I had a truly fantastic weekend, but did absolutely zero knitting. I was slightly distracted... here is my self-portrait Tuesday photo, taken this morning before my boyfriend had to fly away back to CA.

Some weekend highlights included:
Going downtown to Water Tower Place

Walking by the lake in the freezing cold

Taking pictures of my finished embossed leaves socks
That's right! Here are the socks

And here are some details...
Knit on US3s with KnitPicks Essentials sock yarn in Ash - I used 2 skeins but have lots leftover - using the Embossed Leaves sock pattern from the Winter IK; I really like this pattern, and I'm sure I'll be using it again... as soon as the yarn I ordered for my sock pal gets here later this week! I chose a really pretty blue/green combo, since she said she likes those colors, too, and I can't wait to get started.

Hope everyone else is having a lovely week so far. We just started Spring Quarter, so I've got exciting new classes, a new work schedule (more hours = more money, hooray!), and some new knitting in mind. I'll keep you updated!

Your Embossed Leaves socks are gorgeous!! I love them! They look like they fit perfectly, too. And such cute pics of you and your boyfriend. ;-) Sounds like you two had a fantastic weekend! Best wishes with the new quarter! Take care, Allison! :-)

yar! the socks are looking lovely. but in a piratey sort of way, of course. apologies in advance but i might be a day or two late mailing out your booty. (ok, that sounds real bad). there's a flu bug going around casa red beard so i may miss friday's mailing deadline in order to finish a few handmade projects over the weekend. if i do, sorry! but you haven't been forgotten by your pirate pal ~ she's just delinquent. (as any good pirate is).
