The Jaywalkers are done.  Just in time for UFO August to come to an end.



Pattern Grumperina's Jaywalker
Yarn Lorna's Laces Shepherd's Sock, color Vera

Below is  my UFO August List, with the items I've finished crossed out.  I finished a total of six.  I'm pretty pleased with that.  I will continue to work on the UFO's but not right away.   I'm looking forward to tomorrow when I can cast on a new project.  It'll definitely be the Swallowtail Shawl from the Fall Interweave.  I've just seen too many gorgeous Swallowtails out there not to knit it.

Oh, you're killing me with the shoes again! Seriously, whenever I see an interesting pair of shoes now I think, "Yes, but do they compare to Those Shoes?" lol The socks are gorgeous and awesomely my favorite colors--I hope they were worth the knitting, now that they're done. (Did you pull a Joni and "hide" the ends for the photo shoot so you didn't have to weave them in yet?)

You should produce a monthly calender--pinup shots of different socks (you know, pr0n for socknitters) with The Shoes. I would totally buy one. lolz

The socks look great. Congrats on getting so many UFOs finished too, and I love love love those shoes.

Wow! You've made such great progress on your WIPs. And the Jaywalkers look great, too!

The socks look great. That's a lot of projects you finished up. Have fun starting swallowtail today!

Love the Jaywalkers. I'm so impressed with how much you got finished this month. You can now cast on with a clear conscience!!

The socks did turn out very well! I'm just thrilled to finally meet someone with at least as many UFO's as me. I don't even dare to list them!

If you make the calendar, you should call it "Sock Porn" and take the pictures as if they're "lounging" around, all risque...by the pool, next to a hottub, next to a martini, "curled up" by the fire (for December), laying on a fluffy white pillow...you get the picture. A sock calendar a la Hugh Heffner. :)

I love the way the yarn you used for these pooled. They're gorgeous!

Jaywalkers, yay! I just bought this yarn, too! I just love those colors!

Please email me. I would love to know where you got those shoes! They are awesome! So is your knitting!
