On to the next pair of socks....

Just a quick post with a couple of pictures. I realized on Sunday that Mother's Day is only two weeks away and I had just started the second Jaywalker sock for myself. So, I knit like a fiend and finished those last night and cast on the first of a pair of plain (self-patterning Regia Jacquard) for Mom. It took me 3 tries to get a more elastic than my usual cable cast on start that I liked! I tried two different heel stitches on my socks...the ususal reinforced heel on the first and the "partridge eye" or " eye of the partridge" or something like that on the other...I think I'll just stick to the reinforced heel from now on. Anyway, here is the finished Jaywalkers (not yet washed and dried...they should tighten up a bit ) and the brand new sock.

  1. Your socks are lovely, and look so happy in the azaleas. Great blog name, by the way! I had a good chuckle when I saw the name in my comments.
