The Impossible Photograph

Julie's bday was in January.  Like, early January so early in January it was actually in December.  I finished making these legwarmers for her today.
My own "pattern."  Seed stitch, ribbing, knit flat then seemed.

Today, as in, half way through February.
Weird angle...

And seeing as I am the one wearing them in these disembodied leg pictures....
My mirror is really dirty....

Julie still hasn't received her gift.  Although I did also give her one of these (it was called something dirtier on the packaging, though).
What am I doing in this picture?!?!
 And if you haven't noticed, it is absolutely impossible to take a picture of your own legs without them looking stumpy (or you looking insane).
In the air?
On the door?
