This IS a knitting blog after all....

And now for something completely different....

Actual KNITTING content!

May I present... Jaywalkers!





Pattern: Jawyalkers, from MagKnits October 2005
Needles: Size 1 Crystal Palace DPNs
Yarn: Vesper Sock Yarn by Julia of Knitterly Things (purchased from kpixie) in color Sweetwater.

I did the bigger size, and they STILL came out way too small for my feet, so I gifted them to an appreciative friend who wears a size 7. I am a really tight knitter, and these are not stretchy socks, so I guess this result was inevitable!

This was a great pattern, though hard to get a good fit. I might attempt a second pair in the hopes that they'll fit my size 9 feet, but then again, might not.

Those are gorgeous! I'm so jealous of the striping!

They are beautiful! I just have the toe to do on my first one...but you've inspired me to eventually do another pair in a striped yarn.

BTW, all the London pix and yarn p*rn are fantastic!! And cheered me up!!
