Introducing... The PUCK UP Socks


And here is where I plan on wearing them!

My Tomb

My Tomb in Pere Lachaise

Yes so the Jaywalkers... we have had quite the relationship recently . I left it to the last second like the assinine procrastinator I am so you know I was thumbing for it. And by deserving it, I mean thank the gods for timezone differences otherwise I'd be out in the cold. Please forgive the lack of photos cause really, I am tired. It is almost 2am and I have to go to work in 6 hours. I am insane... I know- all this for yarn I won't win. God help me!

First I got thorugh the heel and gusset only to realise there was a one stitch fuck up all the way back up the leg. So unknit I did.

Jaywalker Needless

After that I go through the gusset and was working on the foot and noticed... well now one of these socks looks longer than the other. I will be at one and Zen with the fucking socks! Cause otherwise there is no way I am finishing these. And if I don't finish them by the deadline I might just give them up!

One of these socks is longer than the other!

So the Jaywalkers, and the contest have tested my patience and perfectionist tendancies. I am calling them PUCK UP for all the screw ups I have made over them on sock #2. (one of which I admit I may just go back and fix)

Maybe I will knit another pair... but for a knumbknuckle like slappy over here, it ain't going to be till a while off I am guessing. Shedir is next to be flung around and talked to dirty.

Sophie de Grouch will be content with this pair! Everyone have a nice and happy Vday card on me ;)

I'm not getting my JWs done in time for the yarn that I wouldn't win anyway. And yep. I've made a buttload of mistakes on them. But I also promised my daughter that I was giving her these socks the next time I see her so I can't go back and back and back and.... no. No more.

At least Shedir is just a hat. I had forgotten what pattern it was and from the photos I was thinking it was a SWEATER. (making myself laugh) With the cable crap you've been through already on Shedir I was thinking "she really is torturing herself by making this sweater!" heh

Just in the nick of time. At least you persevered. Nice work!

You should get a medal for hanging in there with those jaywalkers......the FO pair is perfection, however. You will love them, as soon as you forget how hard they fought you.........

Seriously, you must give yourself credit for seeing the project to the very end - thru all the sock re-dos etc. And, staying on course w. all other knitting projects taunting you - me? Probably would have been easily swayed by something new to knit... Great Jaywalkers!

I know next to nothing about knitting so all I can say is an uneducated YAY!
