1 Year Later
What a crazy year! I started blogging a year ago today :) I thought I missed the date, but low and behold, it was today that Knitting Sunshine began. Its amazing how far we all come over such a short amount of time. I mean, last year I was in a completely different place, both in life and in knitting. Right now life is busy as usual, but I can definitely say that I am happier overall. And what better way to celebrate 1 year, than a new pair of socks! I present to you my Jaywalkers in a lovely self-striping Regia colorway:
Pattern: Jaywalker Socks by Kathy and published online at Magknits
Yarn: Regia mini-ringel #5343
Measurements: Made to fit a women's US9. I did the smaller size but wish I did the bigger one since they are a bit tight :)
Started: January 31, 2006
Finished: March 28, 2006
Other Details: I magic looped it once again and love how these came out. Even though it was extra work cutting out the stripes for the heel and toe, I am happy I did because I think they look amazing with the solid sections. I also added an extra inch to the leg and, coincidentally, almost ran out of yarn (I had only a few inches left of gray for kitchener!)
And over at Sunshine Yarns you'll find lots of new things today. First off, Diana designed a new banner, button, tags, etc. for me and they are making their debut today! I also dyed up tons of a new superwash yarn for the striping colorways only and will have those up as well. For those Harry Potter fans out there, all four house colors are now available in the striping superwash yarn!
Phew. What a week! I think I dyed over 100 skeins between last Tuesday and yesterday. I'm tired! Tomorrow I have a special present to show you, as well as my new pair of socks!
