It would be very interesting to see a pair of Jaywalkers made out of this... Hmm...
Also, I'd like to take a little survey. What is your all-time favorite sock yarn? Let me know, and I just might take some of your suggestions and toss them into the prize bin.
And now, on to the updates...
Erica finished a very loooooong pair of knee-high socks for her husband. They are quite impressive!
Choomon finished a gorgeous pair of Best Foot Forward socks from the Knit Socks! book.
Lisa also finished her January socks. You have GOT to go check out her "Stickin' It To The Man" socks.
Ragan finished a lovely pair of fuzzy-trimmed socks. Too cute!
And we have a new knit-alonger, Merete, who already has her January socks done - a nice pair of stripy socks she knit up for her granddaughter.
Whew! We've currently got 68 knit-alongers and 14 people who have finished their January socks already. 14 knitting days left this month, folks!
I'm off to FedEx after I finish this post to mail off two more submissions for Quick To Knit Gifts. I swear, I'm taking over that magazine! I can't totally spill the beans on what they're going to be, but here are a couple little nibbles:
It's kind of funny, because I don't think of myself as a big felter, but all of the designs that I'm doing for them are felted, except for one (and that one is socks). Then again, felting is easy, cool, and it seems to be very popular. I just find it a bit odd that I'm having all this success with felted designs when I don't think of myself as a felting expert by any stretch of the imagination.
I just started a babysitting swap with a friend from playgroup. So I have the house to myself for three whole hours! Of course, I will have hell to pay on Friday when everyone is over here. I'll get to see what it's like to have four kids under 3. I think I'm going to be glad that it's only for a few hours! Although my friend's kids are two very sweet little girls, and the older one is just a month older than Sydney so they get along pretty well. I was going to spend the whole time working, but here I am, one hour down, and I'm still blogging! These knit-alongs are a lot of work! But I love it - I'm having such a great time seeing all these socks, and visiting lots of blogs that I haven't seen before. Keep 'em coming, sockers!
