Hopping along

Thanks for your kind comments about my Coral Crochet Cardigan. I've been basking in the glory of finally completing this project for the past week, but not without knitting anything else.

Look - my first ever sock is complete! I'm rather worried that such an enormous looking sock actually fits my foot so precisely..

I even grafted the toe - which I found very easy whilst carefully following these instructions. Thank you Knitty!

The second Jaywalker is on the needles - just starting the heel flap. Looks like I might need to finish them and wear them as it's still so darn cold. We awoke to snow this morning. I am not amused.



This was the sky at the front of our house around 7:50pm tonight - shepherd's delight? I just hope tomorrow's a little milder but I'm not holding my breath.

I really ought to get that other
Mrs Beeton knitted up so I can take them on our hols to Wales next weekend. Looks like I might need them there.

The sock looks great and congratulations on mastering the toe grafting, something I've been avoiding but must tackle one day!

Your Jaywalker is beautiful - well done. What yarn are you using?

Love your Jaywalker! Looks fab in that colour!

Aren't Jaywalker's great? I'll let you into a little secret. I really enjoy grafting too.

Hurray for your first Jaywalker! I know just what you mean about the size of the sock - while I'm knitting a sock I always think, "This thing is ginormous! And my foot isn't! Really!" But it always fits perfectly. Somehow. :)

Love the Jaywalker, and love the Vintage Coral Cardi! I've plans for knitting Jaywalkers for myself, sometime soon; using some of the excessive sock stash I seem to have accumulated... On that note, I also love the ticker; I've created one for days since stash enhancement, too...
