Hey, look at me! I finished two pairs of socks today!
Sock the First:
Pattern: Ann Budd's Basic Sock pattern
Yarn: Kroy Socks Colour Effects
Needles: Size 2 Knitpicks circulars
Sock the Second:
And a close up because I love the chevron pattern:
Pattern: Jaywalker (Rav link), size M (? - it was the second size)
Yarn: I don't know. That sounds really dumb, but it is yarn I bought off Etsy so long ago, and it didn't come with a label. I'm fairly certain it is Superwash Merino, but I would still be cautious in washing it.
Needles: Size 1 Knitpicks circulars
The significance of the blog title? Well, the thrill of victory in finishing two pairs of socks in one day - woohoo me! The agony of defeat? This is the second pair of Jaywalkers that I have knit that I can't get over my frickin' cankles! I even knit these ones in the next larger size thinking that would fix things. Not so - apparently my cankles are built of sturdier stuff than some supercool chevron sock pattern.
No matter. Someone I know has been admiring these socks, and they will be put in a package and sent to her sometime this week when I can get to the post office. She will have to reveal herself once she receives them.
I'll leave you with a Lucky shot:
What? I was, um... protecting these baby tomato plants...
