Deja Vu All Over Again

Does this sock pattern look familiar?


How about this one?


I mentioned in my last post that I was finally jumping on the bandwagon and making a pair of Jaywalkers. That's the picture of the sock-in-progress above.

As soon as I started knitting them I realized I'd been been here before. The picture at the top of the page is of a pair of socks I made about 4 years ago using a FiberTrends pattern called Peak Experience. Just goes to prove everything old is new again. Instead of being behind the curve with the Jaywalker pattern I was actually way out in front!

Tuesday Morning Roundup


Janet released Part 5 of the FLAK pattern yesterday, and I have progressed as far as picking up the stitches for one side of the front and knitting a few rows. Now it's decision time. Crew neck or v-neck????


Next up.. the Angora Fingerless mitts are complete! I had a nice note from Louisa Harding yesterday, there was indeed an slight error in the directions for the "medium flower". Once I knew what the correction was, I whipped the flowers out in no time and got them on the mitts.


Another (and larger) picture here.

Sliding on down our list of projects in progress we slide right on by Violets by the River, Am Kamin and the Victorian Lace Shawl which were all ignored this week.

The Pi @ Sunrise Shawl continues on.


I so enjoy the Crazy Monkey Lace yarn I'm using on this. 588 stitches per round now so easily visible progress is slowing down quite a bit. I've only used about 25% of the yarn so far so I still have a long way to go. In the directions in Knitter's Almanac, Elizabeth Zimmerman states that the shawl will probably be "big enough" long before you increase to over 1176 stitches.

Maybe if done with heavier yarn on size 10 needles, but not when worked in laceweight yarn on size 6 needles. I'll be hitting that increase round with still no clear end in sight!

Comments

I've been lax in responding to comments so it's catch up time!

Way long time ago Maus asked if the picture of the moon that I posted was taken with a digital camera.

Yup. Took it with my little Sony, the one in the commercial with Aerosmith :) It has a "night" setting that turns the flash off and uses a very slow shutter speed, that's the reason for slight blurriness.

Caroline asked where to find the toe I used on the Blueberry Socks.

It's the Priscilla Gibson-Roberts short row toe/heel which can be found in her book Simple Socks and also in a pattern she did for Interweave Knits a few years ago called (I think) Priscilla's Dream Socks.

Saleknitter asked what cable I substituted for the "wave cable?" in the Flak?

I didn't substitute anything! The wave cable is right there... although I did switch the positions of the wave cable and the baby honey comb.
