I hope everyone had a great Thursday or a fantastic Thanksgiving – whichever the case may be. We had one of the best Thanksgiving’s we’ve had a while – the food was terrific – company was good – and everyone went home stuffed and happy. I’ll be here until Saturday hanging with the kiddos, but that doesn’t mean business stops. Here we have the FIRST Jaywalker Update! Yay! Now, most of this information I collected Wednesday, so everyone might have finished their socks by now. Let me know if you have. Also, if you don’t have a blog and want to show off your socks, send me the pictures and I’ll post them here. We want to see everyone’s socks, so don’t be shy! Oh and if I missed you, I’m really sorry! Send an email to cara at januaryone dot com with Jaywalker update in the subject line or leave a comment here if you want to be in the updates. Thanks everyone! Have fun!
~Adele‘s socks, in DG Confetti, are kicking her arse, but I hope she’s gotten a reign on them because I LOVE the colors she’s chosen.
~Adelle‘s got a gorgeous pair going in Lorna’s Laces Gold Hill.
~Alison is making some hot pink and purple jaywalkers – even though it’s summer down under.
~Anita‘s already got one done. She dyed the yarn herself with Kool-Aid. Cool!
~Another convert born. Bethe thinks we should rename the socks Jayrocker. If I’m not mistaken, she’s using Rock Star socks that rock. Excellent choice!
~Blueadt is making some very cool Tiger Jaywalkers. She has to rip back a bit, but we know she’ll roaring to go in no time! (Forgive me. These updates are hard.)
~Bridget went out and got a blog – just for our updates. Go over and say hi and tell her how great her Seal Rock STR Jaywalkers look!
~Carrie‘s already on her second sock, in Lorna’s Laces, but more importantly she’s running a half marathon today! Good Luck Carrie! You ROCK!
~Felicia has started a fantastic pair of Jaywalkers in her own handpainted yarn available at the Sweet Shop. (I can attest to the gorgeousness of Felicia’s yarns. I bought some the other day and it’s WONDERFUL!)
~Gail‘s got a modified pair started in STR Banded Agate – send pictures Gail!
~Snuck in among the handspun is the start of Jane‘s STR Moss Agate Jaywalker. I think this one is going to be beautiful. (Note to Tina and Kaci – hey – can you add some Moss Agate to my order? Pretty please? )
~Joelene has started two at the same time – in yarn she dyed herself! Yay Joelene!
~Julia‘s got a sock going for every language she speaks. Um, I think her Jaywalkers in Lorna’s Laces speak French, n’est-ce pas?
~Kaci‘s got some kind of bet going with Tina that she will ACTUALLY FINISH a pair of socks. In STR Azure Malchite to be exact. Imagine that! She sells the sock yarn, but can’t finish a pair of socks. I’m just saying.
~Karen‘s got a gorgeous pair started in Lorna’s Laces, colorway Gray’s Corner. Unfortunately she had to rip out and start over with the bigger size – but hopefully things are sailing along now.
~KathyB‘s all about the eights. After a little bit of a rocky start, she’s cruising along in her Koigu in seaQuest colors.
~Lisa‘s got some nice Jaywalking going on with some Artyarn’s in great fall colors. But I’m really jealous of the Pebble Beach STR sitting there in the other picture. Those are going to be some Rockin’ Socks!
~May reports that she’s finished her first sock in STR Pebbles and is onto her second. Go May! Send pictures!
~Mel‘s hoping we kick her butt into gear on the beautiful pink/purple/blue pair she’s had languishing on her needles. Consider this your wake up call Mel!
~Natalia‘s turned the whole thing on its head, or er foot. She’s going toe up with her Lorna’s Laces Jaywalkers!
~Nicole‘s got some nice blue jaywalkers blah blah blah – forget the socks! Go CONGRATULATE HER! SHE’S HAVING A BABY!
That’s all she wrote! See you next Friday for the next installment of JAYWALKER!
