Paris Wallpaper



This might be the last time I make Paris Wallpaper socks, and it might not be. I'm not making promises - they're so much fun to make!

Glasses



I used to wear glasses. Then, I wore contacts. I've been back to glasses full-time since I had the shingles. (Was that 4 years ago? 3? I know it had to be fewer than 5 and more than 2.)

My twin sister and I called it "the Clark Kent effect." If we were together and one of us wore glasses in public and the other one didn't, NO ONE asked us if we were twins. If we both did or both didn't, at least one person would ask if we were twins. 

Yes, just about every time! People are very curious about the diversity of their gene pool, I suppose!

So, I decided to show my current true self to the world and wear my glasses for my Craftsy class. It kept me looking like "me" and saved me from gouging my own eyes out because I tried to wear contacts for three days straight for the first time in over well over 2 years. 

I've never minded glasses. I only preferred contacts because glasses can be a little annoying to use if, like me, you tend to smudge your glasses if you use them along with a camera. I'm not a newspaper photographer anymore, so if I smudge my glasses, I have time to clean them!

Trailer for My Craftsy Class

Just in case you're curious about exactly what's in my class, here's the class trailer (complete with map of Minnesota!).



And, no, I don't know what is the deal with my pinkies. Apparently I'm fancy like that.

Craftsy: My Little Table



Essentials for the little table behind the one everyone can see. My needle gauge, water, spare needles, random socks and weird little swatches!

Craftsy Rocks, Exhibit Two: The Crew



I didn't get a photo of the whole crew, because I was kind of freaking out, but I did remember to snap a shot of the studio door. I ended up having two editors and three different camera operators, because I think there was a bit of a bug going around. I hope you all feel better, guys!
