Am I Crazy?

DSC03111

See this yarn?

It’s going to become the Jaywalker socks by Grumperina…..in 4 days…yep..I joined a challenge on Ravelry…

The Couldn’t Foot It challenge.  The idea is those of us who could not attend Sock Summit are going to knit a pair of socks that the Yarn Harlot has previously knitted….

I cast on at about 1:30 and it took until 3:00 before I was going okay…I was all messed up because I tend to knit inside the 4 DPN’s instead of the outside…It took me awhile to figure it out and then I was doing 4K, 2P instead of 2K, 2P…I misread it…so another frog session…now I’m on track…let’s see if I can do this!

Will I make it?  I doubt it, but it’ll be fun to try…

I used to knit on the inside when I first started knitting socks :-) You are not alone.

Good luck with the socks. Can't wait to see them.

Wow, you are adventurous! As you can see, it took me about a year to knit my socks! The yarn is gorgeous. I have forgotten what Jaywalker is like, so I'm going to check it out. Mostly I do plain vanilla socks cuz I just love to have my feet wrapped in wool!
