sockdown begins.

i'm finishing my practice socks before the YEAR OF THE SOCK begins. i'm finishing the toe on the second one now getting ready to graft both toes or give up if i can't do it and just bind off. i'm soooo excited the second sock FLEW by and i've been noticing a lot of people say the same thing.

now my first sock on sockdown '08-'09 is a JAYWALKER (my first!) and its in knitpicks pumpkin GLOSS that i used while making Thermal (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTthermal.html)
but then i realized i'm not a sweater knitter...never finished it.
the socks are 70% merino and 30% silk may not be durable but TOTALLY SOFT! they meet the 70% orange requirement and i'm actually reallly excited about them.

pictures of my socks finished will be posted ASAP and the beginnings of jaywalkers in pumpkin will be coming as well : )
