McTavish on Mister McSilly

Since the trend is to take pictures of your knitted socks while wearing high heels (a big no-no, according to him), I thought I'd give it a shot:



These are Hayden's socks I did on our Orlando trip. They fit him like a dream. After I took the first picture, he decided to start posing:



Then I took a full-body shot because I felt guilty about taking only feet pictures while he kept saying, "Cheese!"



Anyway, the socks are just simple stockinette stitch socks with a little 2x2 ribbing up top. I used the Regia sock yarn in a colorway PERFECT for Hayden - he wears tons of blue and red. They look oh-so-cute with his Crocs.

Going along with the Hayden theme, here's McTavish:



And the back:



I'm reblocking it as we speak because I didn't pick up enough stitches when I did the button band and it draws up a bit in the front. I think it's going to be cold this week, so he'll actually get to wear it. It's not my most favorite sweater of his that I've made, but like I said before, I'm damn glad that it's done.

I've got a couple more pictures that I had planned on sharing with you, but stupid Blogger is not cooperating, so maybe some other time. Right now I'm off to the shower so I can start what's going to be Day 1 of a very busy week - doctor's appointment, triathlon seminars, Spin classes, a knitting class, school meetings, study time, therapy, and my own workouts. Egads!
