Road trip teaser and finished Jaywalkers

Here's the one and only pictures I took on the Twin Cities yarn crawl. It's of the sock yarn wall at Borealis Yarns. I couldn't even fit the whole thing in the picture, this wall was so big!!

And here are the finished Jaywalkers made in the Lisa Souza LimeNViolet colorway. I've got about 10 yards of the yarn leftover. Modifications included knitting them on size 2 dpns, and making the cuff 9" long. I wore them to the Omaha Weavers and Spinners Guild sale today and had about 5 ladies just gush over them.

And, of course, the Christmas knitting update. Found yarn for Mom's dog's sweater in the cities. I was going to start with that one since it's smaller and with less eye-searing yarn (hunter safety orange). But then Dad called to tell me how his day had gone with pheasant hunting. And he told me all about how, at one point, Cozy had been so cold she'd just been standing there of course that got my guilt-o-meter to shoot way up, so I'm starting the big dog sweater first. But here's the kicker.....Dad doesn't even know I'm knitting his dog a hunting sweater!!!!! So he was able to lay on the guilt without even knowing it. So now I've got three balls of this retina-searing orange staring at me and mocking me to turn it into a dog sweater. Guess I'd better get started.

    and you're not going to sear our retinas with it as well?

    the jaywalkers look fantastic. i went to the sale at about 2, and i picked up some roving, and a book mark. believe it or not, one roving was one that sean picked out, that he wants me to spin, to make him a hat, and a scarf if there's enough.

    the book mark was for liam.

    and the rovings were all eliza's, lol
