It's Bright

Definitely colorful dontcha think? But I think this colorway that I've named popsickle will make a pretty cardigan for a pretty little girl.

It's worked in one piece to the armpits and that's finished. Now I will do the sleeves (both on one needle) and attach the whole mess together. We will see how it turns out.

There is a couple of rows of eyelet at the bottom but I didn't do as much as the pattern called for. I just didn't want it to be so holey. The pattern came from the April issue of Knit 'N Style called Rose Lace Jacket. Obviously it's not rose and not too lacey.

The Jaywalker socks are finished. They feel nice and I hope they wear well. They are going in my gift box. I'm starting early this year with the gift knitting.

Apologies for the bad photos but we've had a lack of sunlight recently. Although the temps went to 15C (59F) the sun didn't want to come out. It sure was nice to have the warm spell though.

You chose the perfect project for Popsicle, and you Jaywalkers are stunning. What do you think of the tofutsies now that they're done?

Rudee, I didn't mind working with tofutsies once I changed to metal needles. I did discover that if you have to rip back it's hard to pick up stitches so I did a little more tinking than normal. I won't buy it again though it's not worth 20 bucks in my mind. I think the cardi will be cute on Elliotte...
