FOs - A Follow Up to The First Installment of WIPs

I have finished objects to show you! I think posting about them really worked. It made me feel accountable to my knitting friends out there. Thanks for all of your encouragement!
I've been waiting to blog until I had a better picture of Josephine (maybe of me actually wearing her) but I can't seem to get that done. That's my perfectionism showing its ugly face. Perfectionism leads to procrastination, so I've been told (and so I've always proven.) So, enough procrastinating! Oh, and I gave the Jaywalker socks to my sister already. When she found out they were done, she had to have them! Guess I'll have to think about what else to knit her for Christmas...

Now I'm working feverishly on the Voyager Lace Stole for Mindy's wedding on October 19. I am exactly halfway done; just started my third of 4 balls today. I have estimated that I need to knit one pattern repeat (10 rows) each day in order to finish by October 3 and have time to block it. Unfortunately, I am already behind; I'm knitting Thursday's repeat, and today is Saturday. Oh so typical of me...
