Fun socks!!


When I bought this yarn, I thought it might make a great pair of Jaywalkers. (Again - it's a Rav only link.) Boy was I right. This seems to be the perfect union of pattern and yarn. Holey Toldeo it's been fun to knit this!!

I actually did 2 test swatches in pattern before casting on. Normally I never swatch, but I knew this pattern was a but particular for fit, so I figured I'd better. Good thing I did too - I went up a needle size!!

Knit on!!

Love that pattern - it looks so fun a cozy.

I need to learn to knit socks, a pair a friend made me are my favorite socks in the world.

Beautiful work!
