This time I have actual Jaywalker progress. I’m 5″ into the leg of the first sock.
I love the way the yarn is striping. I wish the other Lorna’s laces striping yarns were my colors, because I would definitely buy some. Simply Sock Yarns has a special one that is brown and pink. When it goes back in stock I’ll be sure to get some. The Jaywalker pattern is going easily now, I just haven’t had a lot of time to sit down and knit. Yesterday I worked, played a mass, and then went to Marc’s office Christmas party, so I didn’t have much time.
I did have time to order more sock yarn, so I have to hurry up on these in order to get started on some more lovely socks!
Claudia Yarns in “eat your veggies”. I love these colors together!
Cherry tree hill in “Misty Moor”, a new shade. It’s a very pretty mix of blue, purple, and moss.
Shelridge farms yarn in “Fury.” It’s a little darker than the picture shows. I wonder what pattern would be the best to go with a darker color. This is also lovely yarn, and it seems to be slightly heavier than either the CTH or the Claudia. I am a little worried that it might be too dark for me. I ordered it because I’ve heard good things about their yarns, and because I wanted a solid so I could make a more lacy pattern, and it’s pretty inexpensive.
Save me from sock yarn. Ah well… there are worse bad habits I suppose.
