+1 Pair of socks

That's right! I finally finished the Jaywalkers!

Finished Jaywalkers Heel to Heel

I love the way they stripe! And the fit! They fit...well...they fit like a sock, I guess it'd be odd to say that they fit like a glove.

I've really only been knitting on these socks for the past few months. One of my best friends, Illanna is getting married soon. I've been working on something special for her wedding. I know I have a year after the wedding to give it to her and her fiance, but I feel like I should try to get it done by their wedding if possible. It's coming up pretty quickly, but we'll give it a shot. I'd love to show you what it is, but I shouldn't in case she's reading. ;)

I'm also working on Veronique from French Girl Knits (Amazon link) and hope to wear it to Illanna's wedding. It's a gorgeous little shrug. And hardly takes any yarn at all. I'm knitting it in the round in a bit of a tweaked fashion that I read off of the Ravelry French Girl Knits group's KAL for Veronique. I really haven't gotten that far, and, actually, I'm not even sure I've finished casting on. I kinda hope it gets done in time, but I'm sure that if it comes down to that I'll start knitting every possible moment. I'm hoping that I can finish the gift this weekend so I can start in on Veronique, but we'll see.

No, i'm not reading, go on, show it! I love it that you have an illanna tag and it's even spelled right! I can't wait to see Veronique, make sure you bring it when you come!

hi! i don't have your email, but wanted to tell you that the built by wendy patterns are available online and at brooklyn general and, i think, purl patchwork? but you never know if a store will have the right one. i think i got mine at fabric save-a-thon, which is closed, so online might be your best bet.
