Thumbs Up!

Ok I'm back on track. The upload problem was similar to my recent comment problem - changes to the settings - nice & simple once you identify what you've done.

Finally the very long awaited first Tiger Opal Rainforest Jaywalker

The above photo shows the bit where the black pooled a bit but I don't mind it. The heel managed to have a perfect orange & black stripey bit which I like alot but I doubt I'll manage to get the second one to do the same:

And finally something which really saved me time & hassle - a life line

This proved to be worth it as I went wrong on the toe & had to frog it. Not a problem with an extra bit of yarn threaded through the stitches before the toe shaping started but a total disaster without it.

And finally.....

my friends baby in Canada gives her approval to her Herringbone Bootees knitted in Debbie Bliss's Baby Cashmerino.

Thanks - I'm pleased with it. The second one has been cast on & I'm currently on the 2x2 ribbing.

I'm definitely going to do a pair of Tiger's in the Jaywalkers - I really like the way yours has turned out!
