I took two pairs of recently finished scrap socks with me to the USA/Canada so I could have pretty backgrounds to photograph them. Taking interesting pictures of socks can be rather challenging, especially if you live in a small apartment in the city.
I took them with me on a small hike in the Yellowstone NP and found this awesome dead tree. It must’ve been a very tasty tree because there were many traces of woodworms and other bugs that carved patterns into the tree. Perfect backdrop for a sock photoshoot, right?

The blue and the green yarn is malabrigo sock and it’s awesome to work with. The stitch definition is great and the colours are very vibrant and kind of shimmering. Too bad the yarn is very (veeery) expensive over here (and pretty much everywhere in the world?) so I probably won’t be working with it again in the next couple of years.
And one work-in-progress shot:
