Huzzah!





Pattern: Jaywalkers
Yarn: Knit picks sock garden merino in "geranium"
Needles: Two US size 1 24 in. circs (Susan bates I believe)
Started: December 6,2005
Finished: January 18,2006

I love these socks!! The pattern is wonderful. I can see why there are so many jaywalker devotees in the blogosphere. I will definitely make another pair of these. I also really liked the knit picks yarn. Aside from the fact that the color is so difficult to photograph it was really nice to work with.

I can now safely say that I am a sock knitting convert! Now I just need to decide what pattern to knit up next!

I have worked on Angelica a bit as well. I am just at the hip shaping & should have pics (and possibly a finished bodice) tonight! She is shaping up wonderfully! There are some really lovely finished ones in the KAL. I love all the color and yarn choices. This sweater looks great in anything!

Yay! Finished Jaywalkers! They look great. If you let Grumperina know, she will add them to the gallery. :)
 
They look fabulous! Congrats on getting them done. I'm about half way through my first one. I'm really enjoying the pattern too!
 
the socks look great! now, get moving on angelica. i can't remember what yarn you are using ..
 
lovely jaywalkers. isn't the pattern like crack cocaine? A friend of mine who's moving is in the midst of destashing and she gave me her Lorna's Laces sock yarn in Black Purl (good friend, right?? ;) ). It is gorgeous yarn and I am totally thinking about casting on for my. . .umm. . .how many has it been. . .err. . .FOURTH Jaywalker. I don't think I'm ever going to get sick of this pattern. But I think my blog readership might be tho. We'll see. . .

Anyhoo, enough about me. Great socks. They look way too good to be your first pair of sock. And yet they are. You rock.
 
Hurray, hurray! Beautiful socks... nice work, Leah! :)
 
Love them! Why not another pair of jaywalkers? ;)
 
Awesome Jaywalkers! You're all signed up for the sock-a-month knitalong, and I gave you your J (how appropriate - J for January and Jaywalkers!
 
Yay! They look great! I can't wait to finish mine...

Can't wait to see Angelica... or whatever else grabs your attention! :)
 
Thanks guys! I really do love the way they turned out!

Sandra you are so right, it's like CRACK! The pattern is so easy & fun I really think I might knit another pair (thanks for twisting my arm Angela)!! :)
