Well, it seems life wasn’t too short to turn a heel and, not wishing to let a trend pass me by, I have taken a selfie of my finished sock. Yes, I am lying on the bed with my foot up in the air – don’t you?
So, I’m hooked – what next for the new sock knitter?
I could try this –
or, what about this amazing art installation from Malaysian artist and architect Hong Yi, known as Red
bringing a whole new meaning to hanging your socks out to dry
This is Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou’s portrait made of socks and pins and hung off bamboo sticks ( see here for more on this)
Or, as I am fortunate enough to have two feet, perhaps I should just concentrate on knitting the other sock.
Speaking of ‘selfies’, why is it such a sudden phenomenon? Hasn’t anybody who has ever had access to a vaguely modern camera stuck it in front of their own face and taken a (generally) hugely unflattering photograph of themselves. Or was that just me?
