jaywalkers


finally, i have finished my first pair of jaywalkers! i cannot say i love the pattern, and will likely never knit this pattern again after i finish the other socken. i can say i love how stripy yarns look in a chevron design. and i can say how much i especially love how yarntini looks in chevron ....



specs:

top photo ... knitted in adriafil's knit-col on 2.5 mm crystal palace dpns. 120 grams total.

bottom photo ... knitted in yarntini's cosmopolitian on 2.5 mm turbos. decreased 4 stitches on instep after finishing gusset round by doing double decreases on a plain round. knitted toe in my nancy bush way.

what i should do is cast on for the yarntini mate, before i forget all the little details, but, as always, there's something more alluring tempting me ....

Fabulous fabulous fabulous! (One for each sock.) I've yet to make a Jaywalker though will, eventually. I'm with you on stripes and chevrons. It seems a natural choice to me.

I love all the colors in the jaywalkers. But yeah I must agree the yarntini looks fantastic too. :)

Those are some awesome socks. I agree about the Yarntini in a chevron pattern. Fab!

I know it's getting cooler but surely not cold enough for hell to freeze over? Yay for a pair of socks!

Oh, beautiful socks! Love them. I am so going to knit chevron socks with something from my self striping stash!
