Time for some knitting

Not to make this blog all about paper crafts, because it is, after all, a knitting blog. Says so in the title. I went and bought some yarn, featured in the extremely crappy out of focus picture on the left. It's 100% wool. Shrinkproof, the label proclaims. Lovely colorway, made for 4 mm needles. I don't have 4 mm needles, and I wanted to turn this yarn into socks. So what the hell, I went and made socks on 3,75 mm needles (at least I think they're 3,75. Could be 3,5 mm). I finally made socks following the Jaywalker pattern. I must be the last knitter on the planet to knit these. They're really easy too, I had no bigger problems with the pattern, except for the fact that my kfb increase is a little looser than I'd like. The sock below is for my friend, a gift for Christmas. I think that's what all my friends are going to be getting this Christmas - the gift of socks. I better get knitting!


  1. Hi, your socks are really cute. I must admit I still haven't cast on Jaywalkers myself so I must be the only one. Nice blog :-)

  2. I like the socks also, it is very nice!
