So as Australians, it is a bit of a cold shock to visit Europe in winter. Our hand knitted socks have been in high rotation, and I finished these ones for the Fireman on the flight from Sydney to Hong Kong. Their first day out was a visit to the Musée Jacquemart-André, one of my favorite small museums in Paris. I tried to persuade him to pose with the socks closer to the art, but this shot was the best I could extract.
We are now in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and the sock model was feeling a tad more co-operative – the absence of museum guards, and the the lure of a glass of red might have helped. Don’t be fooled by the pose into thinking that the weather has been warm – when the socks were hanging on the line today after a wash they froze!
