Winter Knitting Porn

So I’ve been working on the pattern for the Garden Party Socks, and I’m at the point that I need to add some pictures of the finished product.  I’ve got a theory that the most famous knitters are currently the ones who produce the best knitting porn.  And I want to be one of the best knitters, so…

Can I just say that I’m so glad that people I know read this blog?  Because there’s no way on earth they’ll tease me for implying that I want to be a knitting porn star.

I’ve apparently also decided I never want to run for public office…

Anyway, it’s become time for me to take a few pictures of the socks.  And I want them to be good pictures, you know, really lush and sexy.  I want the knitters who see them to crave these socks, to go mad with wanting to find yarn and needles right now so they can cast on and find the release of knitting this pattern.

Okay, apparently my mind is stuck on a single track, and it’s not a great one.  Why don’t you just look at my current sock picture while I give my brain a thoughrough scrubbing?

(By the way, those are the new sock blockers that The Blanket Thief gave me for Xmas.  I had an inordinately fun time trying to hang these in various places in my house.)

I’m thinking that the perfect picture for my garden party socks would be a nice spring garden in the late afternoon light, with lush greenness everywhere.  Maybe hanging nonchalantly in a tree with budding leaves, or possibly tucked in amongst a bunch of flowers.

The only problem with that plan is that it’s currently January, and we’re still a couple months away from new growth on the plants.  And I don’t want to wait that long.  I’m impatient.  I demand instant gratification.  I want my sexy knitting porn, and I want it now!

Anyone have any ideas for where I could do a great winter knitting porn photo shoot?
