Thanks for all the comments on the red spring/summer tank! I hope to wear it soon, I just hope it doesn't bleed when I start sweating... that would be super embarrassing!
Back to socks... the ones I were painfully trying to finish (I started in winter 2005)! I utilized the 5 hour train rides to Montreal and voila! Mission accomplished! Here I present to you the Lace Panel Socks in Sheepjes Sock Yarn on 2.25 metal needles. Luckily I have small feet and it was relatively fast to finish them up.
And of course, I was all excited and started two more socks. I'm a little bit weary about the gauge and measurements for the jaywalkers. After reading blog comments about the inelasticity of the pattern, I used a larger needle (2.75). It now fits but the stitches feel a bit loose. I like em' snug! Hmmm.... should I continue? The chevron points look like boobies :(
While I was at it, I even started this... which is leftover from this. Looks fluffy and soft?
It's actually something lace-y!!
I'm not too sure about using the vargiated KSH knock-off to make this... but it's ironically challenging yet soothing, every row is a bittersweet accomplishment. The more I knit, the more I wonder... will the colors be too busy for the pattern? Yet I can't help but knit "just one more row" to see the effect of the colors.
Yes, I am a stubborn knitter. And one day when I decide to rip it out, I have no one but myself to blame. In the meantime, I'll just see how it looks after knitting one more row...
