My First Pair with the KAL


I just joined the KAL a few days ago, and I was already working on these, but just finished them today:

Very happy that they're done and that I actually knit the second one too, hehe. My attention tends to wander from project to project, but I tried to stay focussed and it got me a complete pair :-)

June Socks that won a prize!

I didn't do much sock knitting this month at all. I've been vacationing with my daughter and grandbaby in Indy. But, I did sign up for a knit-off the last weekend I was there. We didn't really have any plans and I figured that I could give the socks to my daughter as a gift when I finished. So, started knitting on Friday afternoon and finished on Sunday afternoon. I spent a lot of time knitting, but did make dinner (yummy chicken burritos with red chili sauce) on Friday and we went out for lunch on Saturday. I really didn't think that I had a shot to be the first finished, as the first knit-off (this one was to defend the team title!) was won by a lady who knit a pair in 12 (or was it 14) hours straight! Without further ado, Clementine by Momma Monkey from Socktopia. You can click on the picture to get the yarn info.

new additions

My apologies--I got behind on a lot of other things and have been neglecting the KAL administrative stuff. I had a bunch of people email asking to join that I didn't get around to adding until today. I think I have everyone added that requested it--please let me know if you have asked to join and didn't receive notification from blogger that you now have permissions on this KAL today.

Erde Austermann Jaywalkers

I finally finished the second pair of Jaywalkers (after making a pair and a half of sideways-ish socks in the middle). Here they are. I love the feel of the Austermann yarn and wish it also came in solid colors.
