In knitting news, I think I may have finally got my Jaywalker sock back on track size wise. The way the original pattern is done, it was just too tight for my liking, so fortunately I was able to find some variations to the pattern that let me go up a bit more in size without having to go up a size in needles. It's really a great pattern because it turns out beautifully and it's also easy to memorize which makes this a really nice project for me to fall back on when I need a break, and I think the yarn I'm using is terrific...it's Trekking xxl #106 in pastels. I also have a couple other colors of the Trekking put aside for more socks later on.

I'm still making slow progress on my Cozy. I have probably six or seven repeats done on it at this point, and I'm still not sure that I like the color. I'm using a slate grey and it seems that the stitches really blurr together instead of show off the pattern. I really hope that changes once it's done and blocked, but if I ever make this again I think I will use a much brighter color. I really need to take some pictures of it...every time I think to, I remember that I haven't charged the battery on my camera. :(

I've frogged Sebastian's pullover. This might sound really weird but since I quit smoking, I've been knitting tighter than normal...so the end result was part of a pullover done in two different gauges. Kind of looked like two totally different projects, really, lol.

I was really afraid that the inconsistancies would cause a lot of problems fit-wise, so I figured it would be best to start over.

I'm really looking forward to this weekend. Laundry, knitting, sleeping in and working on Sebastian's reading.

:) See ya later.
