Nothing says “dork” like trying to take a self-portrait

La’s having a contest – post pictures of the cute little feet in your life (furbaby or otherwise) over the next week and you could win some La-made stitchmarkers. (Here’s my entry, La!)

Reading Update
Delete All Suspects by Donna Andrews. This mystery series feature artificial intelligence Turing Hopper, who helps a human private investigator solve crimes. I guess this would be classified as a “techno-cozy” mystery – really, mystery niches are amazing, aren’t they?!
Murder with Puffins and Crouching Buzzard, Leaping Loon by Donna Andrews. These were the first Meg Langslow mysteries I’d read and I enjoyed them much more than I expected – they’re very silly and feel a bit like reading a comedic melodrama. Definitely a nice break from 24! Anyway, Meg works as a blacksmith, making ornamental items – what was I just saying about mystery niches?!? And yes, the titles are all bird-themed, although none of the characters is an ornithologist.

Refined Raglan Photos
Ok, bowing to peer pressure, here you go – me modeling the refined raglan. Don’t I look thrilled? If you’ve been reading for ages and ages, you might notice that this sweater looks awfully similar to something… (You will need to click on the picture to see the cable detail.)

In an attempt to make pictures of a black sweater more interesting, here’s Mayhem! (My baby is all grown up! *sniff*)

“Did you see it?! I was just sitting there in the previous photo, minding my own business when I was rudely snatched up!” -M

And Chaos!

“Why is that thing clicking and beeping and flashing at us?! Obviously we’re running out of time and we’re all going to die!!” -C

  1. I was thinking I needed something to read, the books I have around my bed are just not making the cut lately. So what if your sweater looks a bit like the other, they are both great!

  2. Chaos, just hang on one more minute! Jack Bauer is on his way to disarm the beeping device, which may or may not be a nuclear bomb or nerve gas!

    Love the raglan btw, it’s a very stylish and functional sweater. 🙂

  3. you look so lovely in your new sweater – and the ‘kids’ great – definitely all grown up. Awesome.
    I predict that this one will become one of your fav’s

  4. I love it! And my dear, you don’t look dorky. We truly are our harshest critics. Poor Chaos, he really does look horrified. And then there is May, whom the camera loves.

  5. Very nice pics of yourself!! And I love seeing the kitties with you!! Now for a truly challenging picture, have them BOTH with you for a family shot!! LOLOL!!

  6. Chris, you look great, and so does your sweater. I like that’s it’s both basic and a little fancy. I bet you’ll wear it a lot — looks very comfy. And your co-models are lovely, as ever!

  7. That last one is hilarious. We were watching some movie the other night and coyotes were howling in the background. That is the look Jack and Murphy had–it was so funny.
