[10/27: reposted after a system restore to fix a glitch on the server. If you commented: sorry!! comment again!]

My entries will be a bit thin between now and the election. Here is what is going on.

I started the Jaywalker socks in Emerald City Sock! I was concerned about the leg width, given there are so many stitches cast on, but everyone reassured me they DO pull in THAT much, so I went ahead. After awhile I decided to decrease partway down the leg, because they would have been floppy around my ankles otherwise. I skipped the increases on one of the increase/decrease rounds. It seems like they will fit me well this way.

I finished the body of Venus and started a sleeve. This doesn’t look like much in photos, it will need to be blocked and worn to show itself off properly. I think it will be a very useful sweater. The sleeves are only 3/4 length so I hope they will not be too terribly long a slog.

I decided to be autumnal and spin some darksheep bluefaced leicester I bought from Copper Moose’s eBay shop a year or two ago. It spins beautifully.

I have 2 pounds and am thinking of a long cabled cardigan, not unlike Mendocino which I wear constantly.

    I really like the Jaywalkers in Emerald City and Venus will be sooooo nice when you finish her.

    That Emerald City sock is so gorgeous it makes my toes curl! Ye gads, I’ve got to buy me some.
