Charcoal Jitterbug Jaywalkers Hate Me...


I'm on my second attempt at the Jaywalkers out of Collinette Jitterbug in Charcoal colorway. My first attempt ended just above the ankles. I tried a great toe up version, but totally screwed it up. The foot ended up being about 2 inches too long after the added gusset stitches.

Now, I'm re-knitting them top down-two at once, and I've just realized that the dye lots are different. I was in such a state to get these socks done for my February socks, that I didn't even realize how different the two are. Oh well, I'm going to push on and finish them, as is. And hope that much later I can make two more socks out of the leftover yarn from each ball to make two complete and identical pairs.

Only time will tell.

You can't get a break on those ones, can you? Hoping to see you Tuesday-- so much has gotten in the way lately!

Jeez o peets! Those socks are just torturing you! Maybe an exorcism to chase away the sock demons.
