Another week, another pair

Jaywalker Socks
Originally uploaded by plath.

I finished my Jaywalker socks! Boy, if you’ve been reading here lately, you’d think I was just a sock knitting blog. So, in that spirit, I cast on for another pair, of course. This pair may be a Christmas gift. I say may, because it depends on if I have the patience to knit a longer foot than my own. LOL That’s the main reason most of the socks I knit end up for me– I have small feet. However, I’m determined to get a few Christmas gifts out of the way early this year, and I know someone who just loves pink and purple, so perhaps… no promises though.
Classy slip ups

They’re the Classy Slip Ups from Knit Socks! (Knit) in Lisa Souza Sock! Berry Poppins colorway (way too many exclamation points there). The sock yarn is nice and squishy although I have been leaning towards a tighter twist in my sock yarn lately. BUT she just came out with a Hard Twist yarn, though it’s quite a bit thicker. However, I’m really happy with the way these are working up. The pattern is a nice, easy, 4 row repeat, and I think it really works well with the hand-dyed yarn. I’m hoping I can get them finished quickly, as Sock Madness is starting March 10th. I’m a tad nervous, as I’ve never been in a speed knitting competition before. I don’t consider myself a quick knitter!

Ok, I’ve rambled long enough. Marzipan is getting bored.

    Really, I wish my feet were smaller so I could knit socks faster — the grass is always greener, right?!

    By the way, Marzipan is super cute…and might have the BEST name ever!
