I joined the club...
Yup, I'm a follower. Here is a pic of the Jaywalkers. This is just such a nice pattern for the variegated yarn, and it's a relatively mindless repeat. It's so nice to be knitting for myself!
Helene finished her January Socks - do they look comfy cozy or what?
And check out a new knit-alonger, Lucia, who not only has already completed her January socks but has written a great calculator for making your own pattern for toe-up socks. Awesome!
Dene finished a pair of socks of her own design for her son-in-law and started some Jaywalkers. We'll see if she can wait until February to finish them!
And here is a VERY exciting announcement regarding the knit-along... You now have EXTRA incentive to finish your socks each month, because each month everyone who has finished socks that month will be entered into a drawing for sock yarn! How does that grab ya? I've decided to skip the Knitty SP6 so that I can give you guys more fabulous prizes. For January, the prize will be two balls of Knit Picks Parade in the Checkers colorway. So get those socks knitted, y'all!
I am still deciding on the final prize, but I promise it will be spectacular. Also, if anyone has any sock stash that they'd like to donate to the cause, please let me know. I would love to give away as many prizes as possible since we have so many sock-a-monthers!
Bill and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon date yesterday. We crawled into bed with a big bucket of Double Stuff Oreos between us (and without any kids jumping on us), put in Creepshow on DVD (Bill's family has a weird Christmas tradition involving Creepshow which hasn't been happening lately because of the kids), and relaxed. I knitted, and Bill ended up taking a two hour nap. It was so nice! We really need to do that more often. It was great to be able to watch a non-G-rated movie with the sound on and not worry about scarring the kids for life.
Keep those sock updates coming!
