I know this probably shouldn't be so exciting, but this week, I've finally finished the first Jaywalker. Yes, it really did take me way too long, but only because my life has suddenly gone full throttle. I will finish the second one. I have a few inches done, but nothing that I will photograph, since you will only think that I am reposting pics of this one in progress. So in all her glory, I present, Jaywalker 1:
The color in the photo is a little washed out. The sock itself is much richer, warmer tones, but I decided not to worry until I can take pictures of the two finished together.
Does anyone remember me swearing to a yarn fast until I've saved up to buy the spinning wheel? Did anyone believe me?
This cute little yarn family came in a big box this week. Oh, did I order that? Oh. Well, its' for Christmas gifts (well...most of it) And anyway, it's Knitpicks. Does it really count when it costs that little? (Why did I have to buy this much? Well, to get the free shipping, of course!) Notice the cream colored sock yarn to the far right. Yes, I'm going to dye my own. No, that has nothing to do with Christmas.
I ordered two of the "dancing" elastic sock yarns. "Ballet" was pretty, although I wish it was a little more subtle with the purple/pink theme, but I must say, I agree with Mouse: "Swing" is like a circus. I was going to make it into little footies for my brother, but I'm afraid he'll hate them. He said he might not, but I can't take a picture that truely captures the horror of the redbluegreenyelloworange throwing itself up at me. Maybe I'll hide it for now.
Ok, ok, since I'm airing all my dirty laundry, I might have bought this too...
It also didn't cost much. I was at Hobby Lobby, and it was calling to me. I had started a little hoody sweater for Mr A a while ago, and completely fell out of love with the colors. So I'm starting again. New blue, and no grey this time. It's a good thing that this sweater doesn't take a lot of yarn! Otherwise I'd feel bad about this switch. But I don't feel bad. (Ok, nevermind, I wouldn't have felt bad anyway.) Alright, back to that second sock here...
