Jaywalker and Knitting Olympics

Well when the Knitting Olympics started on Friday I wasn't quite done with my Jaywalkers so I figured I would take the first day to finish, which I did. What an absolutely fun, fun knit! I really enjoyed working with the Lorna's Laces in Miata...very bright and colorful! I will definitely make another pair in some other fiber...not sure what or when. Lots of other stuff on the board to tackle first. So here are the Jaywalkers and finished in time for the Jaywalker KAL drawing!




----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now to the Knitting Oympics...here is what I started with: yarn (Dale Baby Ull), pattern (Finnish pattern from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks) and needles (#3 Lantern Moons)yesterday afternoon.





And here is what I have this afternoon!





It never dawned upon me that the pattern and my second stranded/Fair Isle project would fly on the needles so fast! So what to do...I'm going to finish the second sock and then complete one of my Back Burner projects that have long been gathering dust...probably the Phildar cardigan as I want to wear it when my girlfriends and I go to the Marty Casey & the Lovehammers/INXS concert on 2/25!

    Awesome!!! The Jaywalkers are great. I am impressed at how quickly you rolled through the colorwork sock too. I smell a gold medal....

    Your jaywalkers look great, BUT those folk socks are just too cool! I also can't believe they are going that fast! Great job!

    wow, you are totally speedy! The red and white is so lovely (a cross between valentine's day and the canadian flag sorta) and festive. I received a baby sweater made of the Dale yarn (also a fabulous red) and it's wonderful stuff.
