The other day/week/whatever, our Patty mentioned that in-progress photos of knitting projects seemed to be less than popular. Admittedly, I had never really thought of it before, however, I can see her point. A lot of us do not take progress photos and/or do not share progress photos.
How many times can you show the people a sleeve or a st st sweater body before there's a revolt? How much time can one spend trying to make a sock in-progress look interesting before snapping?
Before I was whinging on Wednesdays, back when I still pretended to give half a rat's about this blog, I did in-progress posts on Wednesdays. Of course, I tend to be too lazy/busy to take a lot of progress photos. (Plus I don't find myself or my knitting very interesting and figure all y'all feel about the same at this point.) Then there's the chance most projects run of turning to crackers. The less proof of project, the better at times.
However, the March of Origami or whatever we're calling it, has gotten to me. (In more than one way, thank you very much!) In order to show the knit origami of Nola's Slippers, I had to take an in-progress photo.
Patty, this one's for you!
That's the ribbing for the cuff and the top of the foot. I'm doing the decreases for the toe now and will be picking up and movin' on soon. I finished the first one the other day and LOVE IT!

This version looks smaller than the all black ones but still fit perfectly. My mum's already laid claim to this pair.
Good thing I can overpower her if I have to. ;^)
In unrelated news, yes, I did find that missing mitt. In the drawer I left it in.
Of course, it was...
