I was posing my feet so I could take a picture of my newly completed pair of socks. Ruthie apparently concluded that it was Family Feet Posing time, and she got up, walked over, and very carefully placed her front feet near mine. If I had pretty furry paws like hers, I wouldn't bother with socks.

I like this yarn a lot. It's Austermann Step, with Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil. Very soft and squishy. I'm normally not hugely fond of self-patterning yarns, but I do like this colorway a lot. The pattern itself was just a plain top-down pattern.

PS--Yes, I realize the carpet needs cleaning. You try to keep a carpet clean with one Ruthie and two of these:

Your socks look great! My carpets need cleaning too. 3 kids 2 dogs a cat it's hard to keep them looking nice!

Beautiful socks! I love the colorway! And don't worry about the look of the carpet - mine is pretty awful too! 2 dogs, 2 cats, a bird and, well, me! :)

I knew you'd understand about the carpet! When I die, mobody will write in my obituary, "She was known for her housekeeping skills." But who wants that in their obituary anyway?

You have the smallest feet I have ever seen. They never cease to amaze me! I think Ruthie has bigger feet than you. Maybe SHE wants a pair of socks!!

I keep on checking your blog to see if your lace swap package is there yet.
