The Socks that Killed the Camera

I do love these socks.

cute shoes

But they shall always be remembered as the socks that killed my camera. How? Well, I just had to show you how cute they matched my shoes. My favorite work shoes. But, um, taking that said picture and not being a yoga master yet, well, let's just say...the camera fell. Hard. And, well. It may not be completely dead, but its on life-support, maybe. Ugh.

cute shoes again

Just these two photos survived the fall. Well, at least you can see how cute they match :)

The quick details:

Pattern: Tesserae by Anne Hanson
Needles: US 1 (2.25mm)
Yarn: Pigeonroof Studios Original Sock, colorway Plum Tortie
Notes: Loved this pattern! Can't wait to knit it again with some STR.

Note to the Camera Gods.... I promise to take my next few sock pictures either on sock blockers or sitting down if I do indeed get a new camera.

That's terrible about your camera. As much as I've read into it, I'm sure I'll never master the art of photographing my own feet. I imagine my best shots have been taken in a similar fashion to what you did as it required a terribly unnatural body angle and very precarious grip on the camera. the socks do go very well with the shoes, which themselves are quite great!

Um..yes...bad camera juju there. Lovely socks, though. Will put an offering to the camera god for you.

Awwww...I'm sad to hear about the camera but your pair of socks look great!

Oh dear. I can't say I haven't (almost) been there--eek! Maybe if you knit your camera a nice sock, it will forgive you and start working again. But then there are probably some good sales going on right now, too...

The socks were worf it, though. So cute!

I'm looking at your great photo and trying to figure out how you took it yourself, hmm... No wonder the camera fell! :) (I just dropped the laptop this morning.)

Love the new socks and love that PR colorway!

So frustrating! What we'll do for a good picture! I hope you can get it fixed before camp.

The socks are lovely, but I really need to know about the shoes. What are they? Do they come in colors?
