On a lighter note, I got my prize for knitting the 500th pair of Jaywalkers last week! Grumperina sent me the most beautiful Lorna's Laces. The color is Pale Pink, and it is the most perfect color of pink I have ever seen. I am so excited to find a pattern that will do this yarn justice.
After laughing maniacally while ripping out that last sock I was working on in Lana Grossa, I started a new pair this weekend. I'm using my solid turqouise Cherry Tree Hill to make the Child's French Sock from "Knitting Vintage Socks" by Nancy Bush. The pattern is working out beautifully, and it is my most complicated sock to date. I have only messed up twice so far (knock on wood), and both times, I have been patient enough to frog back and fix the mistake quickly.
There's nothing more satisfying than knitting a sock that fits in a pattern that works perfectly.
