Day 7 – 16th Jan 08
Project 365 photo from 16/01/08
It’s Torchwood day, hoorah! So I changed my desktop wallpaper and icons in celebration. Not the best pic ever… I’m not really sure what the best way to take a photo of a monitor screen is, and it probably didn’t help that I took this in the evening either. I’m really loving season 2 so far, by the way (3 eps in at time of posting). And it looks like James Marsters’ character will be back, too. Iiiiiiinteresting….

Xandermog, finding being upright by his food is just Too Much Trouble. Lazy beast! And look at that gut. Can you tell why he’s on a diet? *long suffering sigh* (To be fair, I think it was his supper time, and I took Too Long to get to the kitchen, so he was having a bit of a lie down waiting for me. Or perhaps he was soooo starving hungry (hah!) he could no longer stand. He does make me laugh.)

Day 9 – 18th Jan 08

My “Fireworks” sock in progress. I’m knitting this with the Yarn Yard club yarn from November, and I’m using the contrast skein for the cuffs, heels and toes. So, I decided I’d try out a different heel technique while I’m at it. I’d got Lucy Neatby’s Cool Socks, Warm Feet book last year, and although I hadn’t started out using a pattern from that to knit the sock, I was able to jump in at the heel part of the Timberline Toes. So as you’ll see, my needles are halfway through the garter stitch short row heel in this picture. I’ve finished the heel now – I enjoyed working it, and it feels like it’ll be wonderfully cushion-y to wear as well – and I’m working on the foot.

Day 10 – 19th Jan 08
Project 365 photo no.1 from 19/01/08
Another photo of Xander being his large and daft self. He was laying there for ages with his tongue stuck out like this. He’s so dopey and cute. I also really do like how this close-up shot of his head came out. Obviously I’m biased, but I think it’s a lovely picture of his big handsome face. N’awwww.

I couldn’t resist including this one as well. Even though it’s technically not what I was wanting or intending with the light reflection in his eyes, I just love the colour the reflection came out. It shows up better in the full sized photo where you can see the real iridescent quality of it.

Day 11 – 20th Jan 08
Project 365 photo no.1 from 20/01/08
This morning, I went into the bathroom and discovered I had yet another little beetle-y visitor in there (there must be some hibernating in the wall or something, and waking up because of the heating because I’ve found about 10 with various markings and colours in the last few weeks), going round and round in circles on one of the window knobs. So I grabbed my camera and took some snaps. With some difficulty, because the cat litter tray is in the way and that part of the window is just above my line of sight. I like this one, though. You can see its little face. And wee little legs and stuff (I’m so scientific). Bless.

This one came out quite well too, and gives a better view of its shell. You can also see the wings poking out from where it had just been fluttering them about (maybe it was getting narked with me taking pictures and the flash going off at it). These photos also remind me that I really need to clean the top of that window. What with it being above my line of sight, I hadn’t realised how grubby it was. Ooops!
