Knits in action

Remember how I said that I would get some better shots of Rogue over Thanksgiving, since my FO pics were so crappy? Well, I did my best. I said to my sister Courtney, aka Courker, "I need you to model your sweater so that I can take good pictures of all the cables." Here's the first attempt:

"No, no," I said, "be normal. This is for the Internets." Silly me. I forgot the Cardinal Rule of Courkerdom: Never be normal.

That's the best I could do. At least the color is fairly true in these.

Later, all the knits got in on the action.

Rogue helped Courker clean us all out at poker, even though she had to use sugar packets as chips.

Hourglass got its groove on in a heated Dance Dance Revolution competition with my brother-in-law while we waited in line for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. (Tip: Don't play DDR in an overcrowded theater lobby while wearing a wool sweater and Uggs, especially if you are prone to overheating.)

And many, many assorted knits showed up for the traditional family Christmas picture.

Five people, six knits (and an uncooperative dog). Not half bad.

Yay, Rogue! She's beautiful!
And this is totally off topic, but is that you with all the hair in the family picture? I've never seen a shot of you with it all out like that.
All the knits look great; Bailey should've been proud to pose with them. It looks like you had a great weekend!

Everything looks great! Rogue, Hourglass Sweater, random knits, everything and such great pictures too.

My dog knows the sound of my mom's digital camera turning on and promptly becomes "crazy dog" whenever she hears it. :)

The rogue is beautiful - I also love the latest incantation of shedir. To continue the a person with fine, limp hair I'm very jealous of your mane.

Give Bailey a belly rub for me.

Rouge looks great, even in silly pictures. And good to see that the hourglass is getting lots of use too. I so need to make me one of those!
