Knitting

A Shakespearean Dilemma

Everybody in the knitblogosphere seems to be working on either Monkeys or Jaywalkers. Chasing Bunny has got a picture of the Jaywalkers she is working on. She happens to be doing these socks in the same yarn and colorway that I am knitting my Monkeys in and now I am faced with a dilemma. My sock is on a time out (again) because I screwed up (again) one pattern repeat before starting the toe shaping and I need to rip back two rows. That’s fine, I can do that. But Noodleknit’s Jaywalkers are just. so. beautiful. I think I must have sock envy because I really really want to rip back the Monkeys entirely and knit the Jaywalkers. To Rip or not to Rip? That is the question.

  1. Thank you! You know what? After casting off the first Jaywalker I weighed the remaining yarn- I still had 70 gms!! Check your yarn, you may have enough for a pair of Jaywalkers without ripping the Monkey!

  2. LOL Jen. I can’t help you with that one. I’m about to rip out a sock I just finished from the toe up. I hate the way the heel fits. Sigh. Although, getting two pairs of socks for the price of one (as suggested by Peggy) would be pretty cool..
    :D
