Jury Duty

A month and a half ago, I was called for jury duty. It was not very eventful... I was amongst 300 people sitting in a room waiting all day for a week. During the time there (waiting), I worked on this: Jaywalkers. Isn't it ironic that this was the project I would bring into the courts?

The yarn is Patons Kroy in the Kool Stripes colorway and I used 2.75mm Brittany needles. I actually like this yarn, it's a bit heavier than other sock yarn and doesn't split. Plus, it's cheap! Unfortunately, I'm not as impressed with the Brittany needles. I broke a 2.75mm one! Although they offer a 5 year warranty and send a replacement, it's just plain annoying.

Here's a picture of Summer Wheat which I finished a few months ago.
I also finished a few Xmas pressies. Will show you next time!
