Jaywalking

My first socks of 2007 are completed! I made the famous Jaywalkers. It seems like everyone is making these babies!

Here are mine:




Yarn: Autumn House Farm Herdwick Sock yarn
Merino Super Wash 450 yards

Needles: Size US 1 DPs

I absolutely loved this yarn. The colors are so rich and vibrant and the yarn is very easy to work with. I highly recommend it!

I think the zig zag pattern of the Jaywalkers really bring out the best in this yarn too.






I look forward to making many more socks this year. They are definitely addicting!
This is my 6th pair of socks and hopefully I can double that number (at least) this year.

Happy Knitting!

Very nice job on your jaywalkers. I think I'm probably the last person on earth who has not made a pair or these.

It scares me sometimes how similar we are, Jody. My first jaywalkers will be done in the next week or so.

They look great, Jody! Don't forget to send Grumperina a picture for the gallery. You might win a prize. ;)

please tell me that you were working on the second sock at my house the other night! Otherwise you are scary fast! I'm still plodding along on mine. Got the heels turned and am working on the gussets now.

Love yours!

Love the Jaywalkers! I've often admired them, but still haven't made any yet either.

I LOVE THEM! Where were you tonight? I'm gonna have to start mine now aren't I?

Those are really cute. I love the colors. But I am disappointed that you didnt a picture shooting on your back and shooting up. I always expect a funny angle from you.

HOORAY! They look great!

Too much work has put my pair of Jaywalkers WAY behind yours. Congrats on being able to wear yours already.

Your socks look perfect! And I love the colorway! I still haven't made a pair of jaywalkers......

Nice, love the jaywalkers!

Jodie, I was loving the colors you were dying yesterday, but now that I am looking at your blog, we are actually buying the SAME yarns. I have a pair of socks case on in THIS exact colorway right now. Plus, a sweater I am starting out of Aracuna Nature wool.

Cool Jays!
And, yes, socks are addictive - the withdrawal is a killer - let's not go there.
