What do you do when your cat looks like this?

Maybe it was just a bad moment, but this looks pretty sinister. (I am just glad I got them both in the same shot for once, though.) This picture perfectly captures their personalities.

Personality shots

Here's the progress on my sock. Pattern is my arch-shaped sock pattern (boy, I was creative with THAT name) and yarn is Sundara sock yarn in Green Tea. Morning light loooooooves this yarn.

Arch-shaped sock

If I were to do this all over again (which I will, as soon as I finish the toe of sock #1), I would not make the decreases match the ribbing. If you remember I recommended doing knit decreases when the ribbing is on knit stitches, etc, but I think it looks rather messy and doesn't contribute to the sock at all. A quick study of the gallery on Ravelry (66 people made them! Woo!) showed me that most people who knitted the sock in ribbing just did the decreases normally.

You should too.

Seriously. They must practice in front of the mirror when we aren't looking.

Of course the cat looks sinister. That's the look of plotting to take over the world!

Lovely sock. Beautiful color... I don't think there's anything wrong with it, it's very pretty.
