not for the faint of heart

Mim is celebrating her blogiversary in grand, um, style with a contest in which you post a photo of your feet.

Before you look at my feet, i just want you to know that i know that they're not pretty. they never have been. they're wide and bumpy with a lump on each side that looks like some sort of 6th toe. at one point when and ex-boyfriend was a new boyfriend he was telling me how much he loved feet and toes. feet and toes. 'that's nice,' i said, 'but you won't find my feet very attractive.' 'no,' he said with a gleam in his eyes, 'i'm going to love your feet.' after he saw them i never heard about his foot thing again.

after all the trail runs this year my feet are in worse shape than ever. My second toes are still bruised from Double Trouble 15k trail run in June. My big toes are bruised from the Jay Challenge 1/2 marathon at the end of July. and marathon training is not helping with my third toe bumps. that birthmark on my left foot is a potential tool for identification if i were to die some horrific death. oh, and they're hairy. so after all that fanfare, here are my not pretty, not cute at all -- feet:

here is that Cherry Tree Hill worsted in what will become a french market bag. doesn't it knit up pretty?

after admiring so many lace projects (and finishing my complicated skull illusion scarf) i decided to cast on the Branching Out scarf and give lace a try. i'm using Rowan Kid soft, a discontinued yarn or color or something that i picked up from ebay for a sweater that i decided not to do. after frogging once and two pattern repeats, i think i have the hang of it. the yarn is really fuzzy and the pattern might look better on larger needles, or maybe once it's blocked. but for now it's a great learning piece.
