Jaywalker Progress!



I'm now working my way through the heel flap. I have to say I am still loving this pattern! The picture is probably a little more true to the actual color of the yarn this time, as this photo is sans flash. The flash was really washing out the photo tonight for some reason, so I decided to do without it.

I've also been making progress on something that I can't quite show yet - I'm hoping next week I'll have pictures to post.

Happy Knitting!

Spring is here (or at least in this sock...)

I've cast on and knit a few rows of the Jaywalker sock. I'm participating in the Jaywalker Knitalong, found at http://www.januaryone.com/ .

This is the button for the KAL:



Nifty, huh?




I'm knitting this sock in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn in the Knit Happens colorway.

I'm knitting the smaller size on one size larger Addi Turbos. I've heard it knit's a bit snug and size 1s are not my favorite size needle to knit with, so I'm hoping this choice of size and needles will work out well.

This is my progress so far:



I actually cast on last weekend. Due to the busy week, I haven't really had any knitting time. Hopefully this week I'll make more progress.




I'm still making progress on updating the layout of the blog. I'm hoping to add more buttons and things this week.

It's a whole new year...

I hope everyone had lovely holidays.

In the interest of the new year and all, I'm working on updating this blog a little bit. I've updated my list of current projects, and I have a lot of blogs to add to my list of links.

I'm gearing up to participate in a few knitalongs as well - buttons will be arriving to this here blog any day now.

As for the knitting content - pictures will be appearing once again next week.

Stay tuned!
