eating crow

agent aubergine's jaywalker


see these beautiful socks? these are not my beautiful socks. i wish they were my socks. hint hint. ... these are the socks of a certain agent aubergine. she is, at the moment, blogless, but i hope she will start one sometime so i don't feel compelled to post pictures of her knitting and claim it as my own!

i have seen jaywalkers. we have all seen more jaywalkers than we could imagine.

i had resisted. i said, "no ! everyone is making jaywalkers ! i'm not making jaywalkers !"

but then, i saw agent aubergine's, and i was sold.

it's not as simple as monkey see monkey do though. this event coincided with me beginning chart 2 of icarus. therefore, icarus is no longer in the realm of mindless knitting ... and i needed a mindless project ....


my sock!


this yarn is regia cotton tip & top color. i bought this yarn via elann last march. it's been patiently waiting to be knitted.

I just couldn't get gauge on the jaywalkers no matter what I did. I love the pink/purple/red version.. get that woman a blog!

Hi,

Think I figured out who Agent A is -- please send her my best. Great socks - just realized my favorite sock yarn does not have a lot of purples available - must be why she did pink.

Dang, those are some tasty socks. I like your version, too! You almost make me want to jump on the bandwagon...

How fun to see my socks on a blog. Really makes me want my own. The second jaywalker is almost finished. There was lots of knitting in the orchestra pit this weekend!

Who can resist socks as fun, colorful and cheerful as those! They're like fruit stripe gum.

Hahaha she said "great strippage!" I bet that's not the first time you've heard that!!

Jaywalkers are the perfect mindless knitting to have going at the same time as a complicated lace project. I like the colors too - I haven't seen too many pairs that were mostly white. Very summery. =)
