M: socks!

Look at my feet! They're covered in socks!

Handmade socks! Made by me! I'm pretty pleased, if I do say so myself.

I wasn't sure that I'd like the odd pooling action but I've concluded that it adds personality. And they are so soft. And handmade! I rock.

Pattern: Jaywalker, by Grumperina (yes, I think I'm the last one to jump on that bandwagon)

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport, aquired for an excellent deal at an Eastside Stitchers yarn swap a long long time ago. (Was there a time before Lily? Not sure.)

Mods: None, except for making the leg portion a bit shorter. I don't like my socks very high. (And I was paranoid about running out of yarn.)

I really liked this pattern - mindless but still pretty enough to keep me interested. I started them while I was still pregnant and then took a bunch of time off knitting, and finally finished last month.

Yay socks!
