Some Conwy progress
Here is a picture of the back with all of the decreases completed.
A lot of folks in the knit-along left out the decreases because they thought they looked like a mistake, but I don't mind them and like the way that it tapers the sock leg. I'm also finding the way this yarn (Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Black Purl colorway) is pooling to be very interesting - kind of like a tapering spiral around the leg. It distracts from the stitch pattern quite a bit, but I still really like the way that the sock is turning out. If I knit them again, I'll knit them in a less contrasty yarn.
Here is a shot of the front:
In other sock news, here is a close-up of the baby socks on foot:
I think he likes them!
And my gratuitous cute kid pic for the day:
It took awhile to get one without any naughty bits showing, but I think this is demure enough. Let me tell you, they both loved being in the tub together! Although Sydney was determined to try to drown Owen by dumping bottles full of water over his head. And don't worry - I've added code to my blog to make it so these pictures won't be cached forever. Sydney won't have to worry about someone finding them when she's in junior high, and since I added the code I haven't been getting hits on pervy searches anymore. Let's hope that luck holds!
Finally, I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has been leaving such nice comments here. I really like to go and visit the blog of every person who comments, but lately there just hasn't been enough time. Or else I've gone to your blog, been about to leave a comment and been interrupted by earsplitting screams that required my immediate attention... Anyway, do know that I really love to get all your comments and I have the best of intentions to return the favor if I can!
