jaywalkers are always a good choice

i seem to be on a roll. but, the only reason why i can finish a pair so fast this time is because i only had to knit one sock. i started this pair on july 4th, 2008.


i still love jaywalkers. to me, this pattern is about as mindless as a stockinette sock, and the perfect solution to a self-striping yarn.

this yarn comes/came in 50 gram balls, and though they were the same dyelot, it is very clear that one is a bit more washed out than the other. sigh.

the yarn is Marks & Kattens Clown, and the pattern is "jaywalker". i knitted on size 2.5mm dpns.

i kinda needed something else to knit on (and i've still not ordered that 1 extra ball of yarn for my unfinished shawl!), so instead of rescuing another orphan, i decided to cast on another pair of jaywalkers with my felici yarn from knitpicks.

HELLO sock!

this is my first time knitting with felici, and i am loving it so far.
