Wait a minute Mr. Postman!

Look what the mailman dragged in today!

That's right, ladies and gentlemen. I now have those US 11/8 mm 60 cm circulars that don't exist in Yarmouth County. Many thanks go out to Shannon who has loaned me the needles so I can finish those felted house slippers. You're a peach!

I'll be working on those slippers as soon as I finish the first of a pair of socks I've started working on. The photo doesn't do them justice -- the sweet georgia yarn should be in the most beautiful shades of blues and greens instead of a weird grey colour. But not to worry, I will be shooting these Jaywalkers in natural sunlight very soon.

Oh, and I'm in love with this pattern. I know, Jaywalkers are to knitters as drugs are to teenagers (every body's doing it . . . ), but I still love these socks. I thought about giving them away to someone, but I think these babies will be keeping my tootsies warm. And I'm planning a special surprise for the toe of these socks. They're gonna be supercute socks.


  1. Sweet Georgia yarn is like crack...

    Did you pick it up in Halifax?

    Those socks are amazing.

  2. I got the yarn at Tangled Skeins in Dartmouth. It's the happiest place on Earth.

  3. The socks are great! I can't wait to see the toes. And I must say that those needles look like some kind of torture instrument. :) There's the non-knitter in me coming out again!
