I’m pretty happy with them. I’ll definitely use the pattern again for other babies in the future.
I managed to finish the Earl Grey Socks on the way home. They’re good, I’m very happy with them. OH wore them on Sunday night and proclaimed them to be both comfortable and warm.
Sadly at some point there I managed to pick up a cold, so I spent most of yesterday in bed. I felt properly rubbish, but was improved enough by the afternoon to pick up some knitting. Though the Sweater
Anyway, I pootled around a little before finally deciding that it couldn’t hurt to cast on some more socks (the Music with Sox in Swap notwithstanding, starts on Friday – I’ll have a month to make some socks) and the Jaywalker (Ravelry link only now Magknits is no more) has been in my queue for a while. It’s really quite a funky pattern, and so easy! I love easy but funky. And oddly, it’s not as boring as it should be. Perhaps this is because I am easily amused, and so I get excited every time the colour changes in the yarn. I’m using “Lemon Sherbet” in the Magic range from Opal. (Get Knitted say it’s a UK only colour, it’s fab!)
The colour changes didn’t start until after I’d done the ribbing, which works. I don’t know what will happen with the second sock though. Despite the fact that I want to try two at a time on two circs, I thought I’d leave that for the sock swap. Also, I’ve heard that Jaywalkers are fun to knit and go quite fast (I’d agree so far). I do worry that I will not be able to put them down though!
