I love this pattern again (how can you not love such an easily memorized pattern) I can seemingly fly through it with little attention paid to my knitting needles. For my fellow LOST fanatic friends, I actually knit during last week's LOST episode. I know...I could be labeled negligent for attempting such an act. However, it seems I can knit this pattern in my sleep...so watching LOST whilst knitting Jaywalkers is quite similar. Not to worry fellow LOST fanatics, I will not be practicing such careless LOST viewing feats in the future, unless in my hands lays straight stockinette or garter stitch!
So, as you can see...some serious progress. I'm on repeat 8 of 15 for sock number two. And since I will very likely be sitting my arse in the waiting room of some, yet to be decided upon, medical facility today, I will likely get way past the heel by days end (before anyone asks, yes, I'm ok, but that UTI continues to be a problem. In fact its exactly that damn UTI that woke me up at some ungodly hour and led me to this early morning post.)
So what sock will be next? I don't know. Perhaps another pair of Jaywalkers (yes, I can hear you laughing now Cara! Your chuckling...I know it!) But the plain fact is, the current Jaywalkers, are not a perfect fit for me. I did pick out the yarn for myself, but they seem a little tight in the instep. So these may be destined to adorn the small footed sister. Shes been asking for another pair of socks by the way.
And I should probably plan a pair for my sister in law. When I saw she and my brother over the weekend, some hints were dropped. Wait, they weren't hints, they were more blatant. She loves her Branching Out scarf, but would really love some socks. I feel horrible, that perhaps she felt slighted that Tracy and Jill got socks and she got a scarf. That wasn't the case at all. Turned out socks made with Cascade Fixation went much faster than my first feeble attempts at lace (and the time fact is crucial when remembering how scattered and flustered I was in the run-up to Christmas with all my last minute knitting!) So anyway, I'll be needing to pick a pattern for her as well.
And perhaps when Nichole's socks are done, I should plan another knit-a-thon because Gram's and Mom's birthdays will be coming up shortly. And Mother's Day is right after that.
Damn...can't catch a break can I? Will I ever finish Rogue? Your guess is as good as mine! But I do suspect, once my anticipated spinning wheel, finds itself in my home, spinning will take over knitting.
