Knitting Updates

In spite of my lack of updates, there has been action on the spinning wheel and with the knitting needles. Here are some knitting updates. The Jaywalker socks did indeed get finished in time to wear on St. Patrick's Day. I thought knitting on the little tiny needles would hurt my hands, but it was great. As soon as I finished these, I wanted to start a new pair. I just don't have any yarn.

GB started knitting with the Cotswold blues yarn I spun. I never know what to make with the yarn I spin. I'll have to get over that, because the stash keeps growing. Here's GB modeling her very first ever sweater. Pretty cool, huh?

I'm currently working on my recycled yarn vest. The last part is knitting and attaching the shawl collar. I'm concerned that the collar won't fit when I try to attach it, and I won't know until I get it done. It's hard to knit with your fingers crossed. ;-)
