A new pair of socks and a new toy...

Hi all! I finished a pair of embossed leaves sock in Panda Cotton for my Mom in Periwinkle. Can I tell you how much I like knitting Panda cotton? It does NOT hurt my hands! Woo hoo! I will try to post a picture, but my Picassa is acting up and I am having problems downloading from my point and shoot. That may be because my new toy is the Nikon D40x!!!!! No more shutter lag! More megapixels and sharper photos! Here is a sample:

Isn't the picture great? I love me some yarn p0rn. Oh, I wound all those balls of yarn today to get it ready for my much needed vacation starting next Sunday--I am going to Jackson Hole, WY. We will be going whitewater rafting, horseback riding, hiking, going to fireworks (launched from the side of a MOUNTAIN!) I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!

Oh, I got over my technical difficulties and was able to download my embossed leaves socks. Aren't they pretty?
btw...that is my mom modelling those bad boys. The rents were just in Africa doing medical and missionary work (my dad is a retired physician). They just retired to Tampa, FL, but they were given tickets leaving out of O'Hare (so logical!). So they road tripped up, went on their two week trip, came back, rested a couple of days and are now road tripping back. It was nice because I was able to celebrate Father's Day and my Dad's birthday in PERSON! They drive me crazy but I love em anyway!
So, I got lots o socks to knit!

Your yarn is so pretty - you should list what they are and what their colorway is. :) Did you enjoy Wyoming? My husband and I went a year and a half ago and we're so dying to go back. We may plan a trip at the end of the summer since we miss it so much. It's beautiful there (we went in October). Thanks for sharing some great yarn photos! :)
