Hello hello :cheering:

I've got a couple of recent FOs to show you, yippeee! Warning.. lots of pics!

Firstly, my FIRST SOCKS! Jaywalkers (http://magknits.com/Sept05/patterns/jaywalker.htm) - what fun! I actually finished these a little while ago but had to keep them hush hush as I showed my yarn swap secret pal (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11900) (catownedanna - hej anna!) a photo of them as a WIP and I didn't want her to figure who I was :rofling:... please excuse my ugly bathroom floor in the pic!

These guys also have a little brother, I made as a gift tag to send to Anna - she took the much more artistic photo below (note beautiful blue Swedish sky)! :lol:

Next, my Fetching gloves from Summer Knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/index.html) and the KH knitalong (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15462) - made with DB Cashmerino Aran in RED!. These were fun and will be perfect on my fixie in the Autumn :happydance:

Finally, I made my second Branching Out (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTbranchingout.html) last week in a bit of a record-reaking attempt to have it blocked and ready for Satruday - I did it! Hooray! :XX:

Again, there's a KH Branching out knitalong (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12504) with all the fun and games on there!

Thanks for looking - apologies for the long post (& to the KALers who've seen these all before)!!

Katie, you have sheets from IKEA!!! I have a set of the exact same. :heart:

Your Jaywalkers look great (and I've almost seen them in person as I have the tiny one at home! :heart: ), as does the fetchings, and the Branching Out. :cheering:

Heehee - why, thank you ;)... http://www.muskurahat.com/msn/msn_emoticons_smileys/images/Image3.gif.... rahhhhhh...

Thanks! So, to make the little sock, I used 2.5mm needles and sock weight yarn, cast on 36 sts (9 on each of 4 dpns) and just sort of downsized the jaywalkers pattern until the proportions looked OKish :?? - I'm afraid I didn't write it all down as I did it ( :doh: ) so I'm going to make another one and see if I can write out some instructions, will let you know when I have! It was really fun to make and so leeeeettle.

Katie, you have sheets from IKEA!!! I have a set of the exact same. :heart:
Well spotted, Anna!!! I love these sheets and they make it into quite a few of my pictures since my bed just seems to get covered in knitting stuff all the time :rofling: How funny we have the same ones! :lol:

That was your first pair of socks? You did great! I'm still too chicken to try socks.
