The Post with All the Question Marks

What's a girl to do when she has her work week in by midday Thursday? Cut out early? Um, yeah. Pedicure? Yes. The most perfectest manicure ever? Yup. Cap it all off with Mr. Beagle's penne alla vodka and it almost makes up for the uber-nerve-wracking audit and the looooong work days.


See, the most perfectest.

Oh, and what's this? Could it be?

Jaywalkers Up Close

Pattern: Jaywalker from Magknits
Begun: 4/5/07 Finished: 5/12/07
Size: Calculated two sizes smaller than the smaller size
Yarn: Knitpicks Bare Superwash sock yarn, Kool-Aid dyed
Needles: 2 sets of #1 Knitpicks classic circulars

Finished Jaywalkers

Mods: I knit them together on the two circulars until I got to the heel flap, at which point I couldn't figure out how to continue both together (and was too lazy to look it up). I finished the socks individually on two needles.
Thoughts: Not so bad. I think I might even like this sock knitting thing. I did have some trouble with the first heel, but no trouble with the second. The pattern is written quite well. I was just a sock moron.

I'm off for a whirlwind weekend trip to the Great Northern Homeland. Bring on the airplane knitting.
