No one's ever held up a 7-11 in a corset

Ok so I took your advice and put my picture through an editing program (I used paint shop pro) and it turned out pretty well.

Looks a little better but not a lot. At least the color is true. And you can see the stitch definition. So that's good. I normally don't use any editing software because... well... I'm a good photographer I guess. But there it is. I decided to show you all how the other stuff I've been working on is doing. First, I started these baby pants with Angie. That pattern is free but it's not on ravelry exactly because the ones listed on ravelry are different sizes that you have to pay for. I did not, and am just making the newborn size. I like them so far, I guess, but I HATE HATE HATE this yarn. It just feels... yucky. It's also making what I felt was too stiff of a fabric, but Angie tells me it'll soften up a lot in the wash, and have more of a drape or whatever, if I wash and dry it in really really hot temperatures so I'm going to go ahead and try it.

If you can't see in that picture, that is a knitted hem. I'm so proud of myself for being able to do that. Here's a better look at it.

I also finished all of chart three of Juno, mostly while watching the movies "The Number 23" and "Joshua." I reviewed them on my other blog if you're interested. Here's a violently crappy picture of what it looks like so far. I forgot to take pictures while it was daytime... not that it would have mattered. Did you hear about the snowstorm we got? They made it sound like it was going to be the worst snowstorm ever, in the history of the world. So what's the first thing I say upon hearing that we might lose electricity? "Omg, how will I knit??"

And then, today, while I was playing on ravelry, I came to my second sock finishers group (link is in ravelry) and realized something. I hadn't cast on for my second sock yet! Ugh! As much as I love the smooshy and the pattern, and the first sock only took me like, a week, HOW could I let this happen??? So, I cast on today.

And finished the ribbing. :) Yay for watching movies at the computer! Today I watched "Surf's Up" which, I was surprised to find, was a very good movie. I thought I'd hate it but it's really cute. And the animation is incredible. I mean, the water looks so real, they did an excellent job with it.

Lastly, I just want to take this time to let you know that I might not be on the computer QUITE as much anymore, as I got accepted into Franklin University and will be taking online classes starting next Monday. I'm hoping to major in Web Developing. Yay! So I'm going to be a little bit busier. :) But I'll be sure to keep up the blog because you guys are important to me! How is everyone?

I think the picture looks a lot better! Sometimes it is just the wrong lighting or the camera. I have a really nice digital camera. I also have very poor lighting in my house. So, I usually have to go back and edit the photo.

Thanks! I think I have a decent camera and it does take better pictures than most other cameras I have seen it just has a problem with that red. If I'm wearing red, it's fine. I don't really get it. :) Thanks for your help though!

Well it isn't that you aren't a good photographer...its just that the digital eye sees differently than the human eye and at times it doesn't match up at all. When I am editing pics from any event that I do it is amazing to see the differences in the same photos. So no worries about using editing software...that is what it is for. And most times the instant wand fix works for wha you want it to do.

alright . . . is that a really small sock or insanely long DPNs? They look longer than 8"!
