Cobblestone – sorry no tweed. I do love me some tweed, but Knit Picks doesn’t carry any. Harumph.
I’ve knitted up the first skein of this for a Cobblestone for me. I’m not too sure about it yet. I love the pattern, but the color isn’t quite what I had in mind. Lesson- next time buy the color card!
I’m also not sure about my gauge. I was aiming for 4.75 sts per inch and am getting 5.25. I was pretty tense though so maybe it’ll be closer once I relax a bit. The almighty question- frog and change needles? or block and pray? Lesson- swatch first!
I’ll keep you posted.
Jaywalker and Golf:
This is the Trekking XXL I bought last weekend. Why I’m making more Jaywalkers is rather a long story. A few hours after purchasing this stuff I finished up the Lozenge Socks and needed some cast on therapy. I was away from home (and pattern books and internet) so the only thing I could think of was Jaywalkers because I still remembered the stitch count and pattern.
It also felt very appropriate as it was another golf weekend. Golf is perfect for knitting socks. Most of the Tofutsies Jaywalkers were knit during the Masters. Most of the Lozenge socks were knit during the Britich Open. And most of this Jaywalker was knit during the PGA Championship. And Tiger Woods even won! Yay!
Sock number 2 has only 1/2 an inch of ribbing so far. Time for more golf!
