Not too far into my modified Jaywalker sock I realized that there was absolutely no way I was going to have the amount of yarn necessary. Funds being a little tight right now, I will be sensible and refrain from making another yarn purchase. Besides, the Jitterbug yarn will work up beautifully no matter what pattern I use. (Did you sense that I am trying to convince myself?) I am sure the difficulty I am experiencing is some sort of cosmic knitterly retribution for my ADD approach to WIP's.
That being said, I will now work some more on the christening gown.
