Jaywalker sock number one is done! I have absolutely no idea when sock number two will get done, as I seem to have acquired a number of other project I should really be doing in September, but I can't afford to tie up my sock needles. So we'll see when I get started on number 2. The pattern is at least super easy, and shouldn't be a problem to pick back up again.
In our travels yesterday, I picked up some Trekking Hand Art Yarn at the Yarn Sellar in York. (BF was finishing off our Flo's hot dogs lunch, so I had some time at my leisure :)
I'm planning on doing the 2009 Sockdown Challenge on Ravelry. September's challenge is to do either an orange sock, or a Cookie A sock. I've been lusting after Maelstrom ever since Twist Collective went live, and I think the blues in the Trekking yarn will look great in that pattern. (On a side note, I have to add to everyone that's been singing the praises of the Twist Collective Patterns. They've very nicely written, with lots of photos. I'm quite sure I'll be buying more from them.)
My first Sock Yarnista package went out of Friday, and since a number of people have already received theirs, I'm hoping mine will show up on Monday. I've already gotten the pattern, which is called Barrow, and is an incredibly cool Celtic knot pattern. It's done on circs, so I'll either have to learn how to do that, or figure out how to adapt the pattern to DPNs. So I may not be able to make it immediately, but I definitely want to make it some day. (If it's easily adaptable to DPNs, that might be sooner rather than later.)
