I have started the Jaywalker socks. While i love the pattern, I am hating the yarn!

Jaywalker Socks

I love the color and how it self stripes but the feel of it is just eeehhhhhhh.
Its Knit Picks Parade, and i don't think i can go on with it.

Jaywalker Socks

I don't want to rip it out but it feels very dry and gross. it makes me feel like i want to keep putting lotion on my hands, i don't know what else to do. Should i just push on and maybe after wearing and washing they will get softer? I am up for suggestions, I'll just put them to the side and work on Thermal for the time being. I am almost to the point of dividing for the neckline!!!

In the side bar i put up a poll about knitting styles, to see how many people either pick or throw the yarn when they knit. I'm a thrower, thats how i started when i taught myself to knit. I had no idea what i was doing when i started nor did i know there was different ways, but years later after i learned the ways i'm curious of what others do!

So Thursday after my last final at school, I headed to Spruce Run for a little camping. This is a twice a year thing for Will(fiance) and his family (Dad, Uncle, and Cousin) to go camping and fishing...all catch and release...
For the past couple of years I have also been going along, mostly for the camping and just to get away and relax.

Here is me relaxing and working on my Thermal.

And a close-up

It was very relaxing for the most part except for the nights, spiders and creepy shit all over!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone.

So here is my progress on my Thermal.

Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss in Dusk
Needles: Size 4

Yea size 4 needles, I apparently knit tighter than anyone ever!!! i am never trying to force the needle in the stitch so i never thought i knit really tight but whatever. The pic is a good representation of the actual color, a little bright but good. I feel like its going really slow but i also havent been full force into it due to finishing little projects here and there.

Thats all in the world of thermal.

FOs *Updated*

Felted Slippers are DONE!!!!
This is them before felting:

And After:

I ran them through the washing machine twice because after the first they still seemed a little big but after the second time they fit perfectly!!!! I decided to not sew in the felted Icord because it was hard enough trying to fit these under the sewing machine and i just wanted to be done with them, and i am perfectly content with leaving them out.

On another note, i had made a felted kitty bed some time back but then remembered about it as i went to throw the slippers in the washing machine, so i also finished that:

Here is Squeaks barely fitting in.

My progress on Thermal has stopped due to finishing the slippers but now I am getting back on track with it...And i haven't forgotten about a pic on the progress....

While the pic above doesnt really seem like my cat is barely fitting in the bed, she gave me a better top view pic heheh

This was too cute not to post, ok thats it!
