Yarn: Knit picks sock garden merino in "geranium"
Needles: Two US size 1 24 in. circs (Susan bates I believe)
Started: December 6,2005
Finished: January 18,2006
I love these socks!! The pattern is wonderful. I can see why there are so many jaywalker devotees in the blogosphere. I will definitely make another pair of these. I also really liked the knit picks yarn. Aside from the fact that the color is so difficult to photograph it was really nice to work with.
I can now safely say that I am a sock knitting convert! Now I just need to decide what pattern to knit up next!
I have worked on Angelica a bit as well. I am just at the hip shaping & should have pics (and possibly a finished bodice) tonight! She is shaping up wonderfully! There are some really lovely finished ones in the KAL. I love all the color and yarn choices. This sweater looks great in anything!
Anyhoo, enough about me. Great socks. They look way too good to be your first pair of sock. And yet they are. You rock.
Can't wait to see Angelica... or whatever else grabs your attention! :)
Sandra you are so right, it's like CRACK! The pattern is so easy & fun I really think I might knit another pair (thanks for twisting my arm Angela)!! :)
Love your Jaywalkers! I'm still plugging along on mine.
Just wanted to say thanks for being the very first comment on my new blog!
I can't believe those are your first pair- they look perfect!
Thank you so much for joining my project - I love your blog's name! It goes right along with my idea of the project.
