FO- Jaywalker socks

In Regia - Kaffe Fasset Line, the classic Jaywalker socks are knitted. Simple, yet effective. I did a stronger heel, but followed the pattern to the letter. Even if I tried hard to avoid the second sock syndrome, by knitting them at the same time on two dpnds set. One set (of 5) was conveniend 15 cm and the other set 20 cm. Ok. 15cm is soo much easier to knit on. But that foot was slow. Somehow, 10 years warranty on yarn is fantastic, but I notice I just my ring-finger in a weird way, and really get a soar finger with this yarn. Not too good. Colours are great. Anyhow, The SC (scottich Collection) made my yarndiet totally bust. And when you are bust you are. So I ordered 2 sweaters (Cold Duck cardigan and Luskentyre) from J&S. Then today I spent (husbands) money on 3 hanks a 140 SEK on Manos del Uruguay. "Almost" the same as my Debbie Bliss Maya. Reason is Im running out of yarn for my vest.. And the Eskimo I bought in Uppsala will definitely look a bit odd if used otherwise than edging. Anyhow. I immediately have started the Helene Sticka's fake cable sock pattern. In Silver! I have just started, but I like old gal (from the 40s)... Most proud am I for cleaning my "ceramics" cellar. I think it is the first time (maybe second) this garbage collector has been really clean. One reason is we moved down the kitchen cabinets (hubby is soo good tearing them down), and that makes it so orderly. I even put out a carpet! That is an improvement. Otherwise Im thinking why my enourmus amount of Lavender does not do its job in the yarn room. Last night I found one small moth hitting the lamp. I saw it for a second - and gone. Now moth-paranoia started. Just bought the DVD's Shaun the sheep. So, we are really having "life is a treat". Bleet!

Åhh, vad snygga!Och du har fått samma ordning på färgrandningen :-) Det lyckades inte jag med, så på mina går färgrandningen åt olika håll.
Jag har helt lyckat missa Shaun The Sheep! Vet ju hur söt han ser t på bild, men har inte sett på TV :-(

Ha det bra.

I am so far behind in the sock a long it is embarassing.

I am not familiar with Shuan the Sheep I will have to google him.

Hi: Saw you on Ravelry and saw your Jaywalker socks. I love wool socks and can't knit worth a darn. I have to trade sock yarn for socks and I love to wear wool socks year round. It is pretty cold here in Wyoming where I live.
