And the last finished project for 2007:
Pattern: Jaywalker from Magknits
Needles: Addi Turbo Lace size 1.5, 2.5mm
Method: Toe up, two at a time, Magic Loop
Okay, why did I let the internet hubbub about this pattern running small scare me off for so long? This is a great pattern! I love these socks. I wish I'd done a few more stitches for the gusset in the heel, so as to have a little more room there. Once I get them on my feet they feel perfect, but it does take a little extra effort to get them on. When in doubt, make the gusset larger. The yarn is wonderful as well. Soft and springy, the colors just ring my bell. Okay, I can't ignore that one sock clearly is more green and the other is more burgundy, but so what. Look how fabulous they look with my shoes:
I definitely see more Jaywalkers in my future. The pattern is fun, quick, and easy.
A few minutes ago, we had our annual
holy crap, that's enough gasoline don't make the fire department show up Christmas tree burning. I think we beat last year's flamage.
That's 5'8" DH standing in front of it and I just missed the very highest peak of the flame, so I think we may have hit 25 ft. Driving by on the big highway, you can see through the trees to our backyard. I wonder what the passing motorists think when they see our sudden pyro display.
Mom went home on Saturday, taking with her not only the potholders I made her
but her mouse herd as well.
