get back up on that horse !
first of all, i have to say, it's not easy being good. it's not easy for me to do things that i know i should. but, i'm going to try really really hard to knit this jaywalker. miss cosmo jaywalker was/got ripped yesterday. and i probably would had cast on again last night, but i forgot ALL my sock needles at work last night.
so, in order to get on with the show, i'm going to try to either A. knit with a larger needle or B. knit the larger size. i'm not sure which it's going to be (yet). but, if anyone is considering knitting the jaywalkers, click on over here for more clues about the pattern.
with that said, of course i started to fancy other yarns, yarns without a past. pictured above is a new acquisition, lorna's laces shepherd sock in envy. i couldn't get the colors just right, so imagine shades of spring green with a bit of a golden earthiness. and which pattern would i use with this lovely contender? how about f.pea's wildflower socks!
while cruising the net yesterday, i also found a picture of one of the opal yarns from yesterday's post, knitted up into a sock. the yarn is opal's lollipop, in colorway 1013. the sock is pictured on the right, over at knitting iris.
as much as i'm craving a plain sock project, i was thinking it might be fun to try something new from lucy neatby.
