Jaywalker Peer Pressure

I don't know if it's exactly peer pressure ... but it doesn't help when every other blog I see has a pic of their Jaywalker socks in progress ... or completed ... So I had to start my own pair ...

I had actually started before Christmas ... but then my Jaywalkers decided to jaywalk ... to who knows where ... Actually, they were found tucked in a corner of a bedroom at my mom's house ... At least they hadn't accidentally been tossed out with Christmas wrapping paper and packages ... WHEW!

Anyhow ... I don't have a pic yet, but will soon ... I'm knitting them up in Mountain Colors Bearfoot in the Thunderhead colorway ... Beautiful! I'd been saving this yarn to make some really comfy socks for me ... and these will be them!

I've seen those socks too, and some day I'll get around to knitting them. Right now I am just learning how to knit socks. I think I read that they are intermediate level, and I am still a beginner sock knitter...so I'll just have to wait awhile longer.

I'd love to be able to knit socks some day....

See, I told you they were out jaywalking!
Pictures! we want pictures!
My jaywalkers are stalled while I work on a couple of new designs, but will up and running again shortly.

What IS it about those jaywalkers? I know I want to make a pair too. Saving it for some nice stripey yarn; that seems to look the best with that pattern.

You're all signed up for the sock-a-month knit-along. Sounds like you have a good start on your February socks! Just make sure they come off the needles as of Feb 1 for credit... Happy socking!
