Here are your sock updates for today:
Jessica finished some Jaywalkers in a lovely shade of Lorna's Laces (how's that for alliteration?).
Erica has some rockin' cable brownie-points socks. And check out her new Yarn P*rn Monday thing (what would this be - a yarn-p*rn-along?). Too cool! Go join up, you stash-aholics (Jill & Jillian, this means you).
Manda finished some House Socks for her lucky mom.
Lisa posted a pattern for the adorable toddler socks she got her brownie points for the other day. I can't wait to make a pair for Sydney!
I have to say, I've been stumped by why so many knitters have issues with the Jaywalker pattern. It seems so straightforward to me! But I have found out that the sizing is a trick and a half. This stitch pattern is not at all stretchy, so when I did the cuff, it seemed like it might be a little bit big. I decided to keep going, though, and I'm glad I did. I've now got the heel gusset done, and when I try them on, the cuff barely fits over my heel. But it does fit!
I'm just glad I didn't try to get the cuff any tighter! It's such a bummer (esp. when you're knitting both socks at once) when your socks won't fit over your heel...
Well, Blogger is about to go down, so I'm going to wrap this up. Sock on, everyone!
