After reading about the Yarn Harlot's adventures in sock photography, and knowing that I would have several opportunities over the next year or so to take pictures of my socks in progress in some interesting places, I decided to start my own "traveling sock" photo collection.
My first entry is a very special one.....a picture of my friend (and NYT bestselling author) Jodi Picoult, me (the craptastic looking one in the glasses) and my first Tofutsies sock at her reading here in Seattle. Ya know, in all the years that I have been going to Jodi's readings, this is the first picture I have ever taken of her, or her and me. Partially, because I hate getting my picture taken and partially because I just recently figured out how to use the digital camera without swearing at it in the process. Mastery of technology trumped my distaste of getting my picture taken. It likely won't happen again. BTW, thanks Eileen for taking the picture. I love Eileen. I only manage to see her once a year or so, but she always makes me smile. And she knows all sorts of great stuff about visiting authors.
I think my sock photo essay could be interesting. I have some things coming up that will be fun to take the sock to. Come to think of it, I may be a little envious of the sock - it can go to black tie affairs without having to squeeze into a pair of Spanx to do so! I wish I could say the same thing!
