An FO for show!

I finished my fist pair of Jaywalkers. Woo Hoo! Other than a little color pooling on top of the toe, that looks like a dent in my foot, I absolutely love them. Forgive my ashy legs in the pictures.

Back in August I started my first Jaywalker in shades of purple Half way up the leg my stitches skewed, and went wrong. The line of stitches ended up mis-placed and crooked. It bugged me for days until I finally frogged the whole thing and started over again. I had ordered several skiens of Koigu #312 months earlier and thought they would make interesting socks. The shades of grey and white look a little muddy, but I love them. I can't wait to wear them and show them off.

Project Details:

Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina from Magknits
Yarn: Koigu #312
Needles: Addi Turbos, size #2
Started: early September 2006
Compl.: 11-23-06 9:45am

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Off to do some work on Lady Elanor.

love your jaywalkers! I think that purple you started with is the purple I'm actually using on my first pair!
