More to life than baby socks

Somehow life goes on without baby sock knitting. I will not lie to you and say that it's been an easy transition. I started back on the scarf I was knitting for my neice for christmas. Love the pattern but not crazy about the yarn. She's a fan of the orange so she should like this. And the nice thing? It'll be done before next christmas.
Although this is now calling my name ......
880 yrds of lace weight yarn from Ray. What to make? Any suggestions? I already know it'll be for me and I will not share.
I joined a knit along on Ravelry. February's sock is the jaywalker. I think I'm probably the last person in blogworld who has not made a jaywalker. Looking over my stash of yarn I think I'll be using my prize yarn. I think it'll look so cute with red toes.
Ray's yarn shouldn't be calling to me because this is screaming every time I go into the living room. "Hey, lazy bitch. Yes you over there working on other projects. Don't be acting like you don't know me. All you need to do is hide 2 ends and block me. Just do it already. Don't keep me waiting. I'll move to the top of the loveseat at night and let Oscar sleep on me. No it's not an empty threat. I'll do it."

That sock yarn is seriously adorable. I want to pet it, and take it home with me, and, and...

That sock yarn is gorgeous. No, you're not the olny one that hasn't done Jaywalkers. I haven't done them yet either. I have done Monkeys though. They're pretty cool too.

You are not alone, I have not knit the Jaywalkers or the Monkey socks.

Lucky you, winning that contest Kathy had. I love her yarn.

You are not the last person to NOT do Jaywalkers. I haven't either. And I'm not really sure if I will...

There's nothing worse than uppity knitting. :) I like that lace weight yarn.

No Jaywalkers for me either, and none planned, though I do like the yarn you have picked out for them. The red toes will be too cute!

You should at least block the lime green lacey scarf(?) so we can see it :) Looks lovely.
