Jaywalkers Part 2

First off, if you have left me comments, which you know I love, I will be responding as I usually do. It's been crazy around here, and the kids have taken over the computer! They're home for Spring Break, and I've been having to fight for this machine. LOL

I've been lurking on my regular blogs, but I really love leaving comments, too. Where the heck does the time go??

Yay for a finished UFO! I will be posting all of the stats for these on my other blog soon. Click the pic for a bigger view. I love the Jaywalker pattern. I need to send a pic to Grumperina for her gallery, too. There are tons of pictures there.

These are part two, because they are my second pair of jaywalker socks. Here are the first ones. I wear them a lot!! I was even thinking of making some more with the new sock yarn I got, but I found this pattern. I think it looks neat. It is toe-up, and I like top down better, but I think I'll try it out. Plus, Shimmer Socks sounds cool. LOL

I'm also doing the get stitchy knit along for April. I think I'll do some soap socks for Mother's Day gifts. Maybe some wash cloths, too. I don't know, I've been so busy, but I do want something hand knit to give to Mom, and MIL.

The kids want me to get out the Fimo. I used to make a lot of stuff from that clay, but now I'm consumed with knitting. I guess since it's cold and wet out, the Fimo is a good idea. At least it'll keep them busy.

Well, I promise, if I usually email you I will get to it soon! :) Thanks for all of the nice comments and compliments. I'll be by to visit y'all at your blogs asap, too!!

Cute cute cute socks! I like the picture of your two heels together best. Be careful of giving handknits! It's a slippery slope, soon you're knitting all the time, it's all you think about... oh, wait. You've already fallen down that hill! HeeHee

What a great feeling to get a UFO off the needles! Seems like I stall right at the end of most projects, not sure why, it's a mental defect I'm sure.

I did some soap socks and washcloths for some friends last year and they loved them!
LOVE LOVE your jwalkers!
Funny how knitting takes over and other crafty adventures are left behind, huh?!

I love your Jaywalkers Arleta. I've started that pattern anout 10 times (with 10 different yarns)!

Those Jaywalkers look edible (OK, with all the Easter candy stashed away around here I have food on the brain). Great job! Ahhh, Spring Break. If one more young person asks me "What's for lunch?" I'm going to begin to scream and I won't be able to stop.

Love, love, love your Jaywalkers! I'm working on my second pair right now...they're my favorite socks too.

Watching the weather forecast on the morning news and saw the weather headed your way...

I hope you're keeping warm!!

The socks look really cute. I haven't gotten round to knitting a pair of Jaywalkers yet, but I am tempted to knit one in some handpainted yarn soon. Thanks for sharing!
