So, a major theme in my posts this past week or so has been Rosie’s, er, assistance in my various creative endeavors. She loves me dearly, and I love her just as much, but this mutual affection has led to a less-than-ideal decision on her part. Simply put, she has concluded that I will fail miserably in any and all creative endeavors unless she is:
a) on my lap
b) between me and my computer
Obviously, c is her favorite. It’s also rather difficult to get up and get my camera to get a photo of her when she’s actually on top of me, but I managed to get a few while she was prowling
my her desk.
If you’re wondering, I’m pretty sure this is what I was watching at the time.
Of course, Rosie doesn’t lend her assistance only when I’m puttering around the interwebs; she is a vital element of all of my creative endeavors.
Why yes, I am designing sock patterns. Will they ever see the light of day? Only time will tell…
Sometimes, though, my doodling gets really boring, and I keep moving the cream cheese out of her reach (bad, bad human). So Rosie is forced to search my room for other means of entertainment.
Of course, then I get distracted because she’s being so darn adorable, so I sneak across the hall to the GHMC’s room so he can come and share in the adorableness. And then he goes and does something like this:
Despite this overabundance of assistance, I have been making good progress on the Showy Seadragon socks. And the really crazy heel worked out almost exactly as I hoped, huzzah!
I’ll post a description of all the mods I made to the pattern when the socks are done, and once I’ve fiddle a bit more with my crazy heel design, I’ll post a tutorial for that as well. I really like the way it turned out here, and these socks fit my obscenely high insteps almost perfectly!
