A Finished Object
Actually, two. Here are the Jaywalkers, in their infinite finished state. Infinite. finished. Hey, that doesn't make any sense, does it? Shannon, remember to act surprised when you get these next month, and yes, my feet were clean when I tried them on for the photoshoot. I really like the snug fit of these socks, and the fact that Shannon has little feet. It took me months to get these suckers done.
A thanks goes out to Julie for the heads-up information on the toe-up sock pattern she left in the comments. Julie, I'm assuming you've tried them and it works, right?? No guinea pig status for me!
I've started The Saturday Market Bag from the latest MAG Knits. I'm using Lion Brand Cotton, so mine probably (definitely)won't stretch as much, but I couldn't wait to order any Brown Sheep online. Go check out the Jodie's (the designer) website here. I would have liked to post a pic of what the bag on MAG Knits looks like, but the image is copyrighted. Go look for yourself!
I also wanted to share a really great book I started and finished last night. I bought this book for .50 at the University book sale a month or two ago, and left it in the guest bedroom for someone else to read. I didn't even remember what it was about until my sister read it and said it was great. It's The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud, by Ben Sherwood. I think it would make great listening if you can find it on CD or something. I, on the other hand, stayed up until 2:30am because I couldn't put it down.
I'll leave you with my gardenias, wishing you could smell them, too!
