I said there would be photos today, I didn't say they would be good photos - I just now realized I had the settings on the camera wrong - sorry!
Anyway - once upon a time there was a fabulous supermodel named Barf Bear, BB for short. She starred in a knit-tastic blog and was beloved by all. She was setting up for a shot one day, when the camera took one photo and demanded more batteries. Of course there were no batteries to be had, so the photographer had to run out to the local purveyor to get some. When the camera was ready to go again, lo and behold - BB and her four-legged best friend, Cinderella Puppy were no longer in the mood to pose... "Be gone human", said the puppy, "BB is MINE!" (In actual fact, the dog glared, yawned, and rolled over, but anything for a good story).
And so the socks - (Cable Footies pattern in Rowan Calmer, for those who need to know these things) had to pose on their own.
