Completed Jaywalkers, I'm very pleased with them. they feel like a pair of little hugs on my feet. It looks as if there's a hole on the instep of the right one, but it's just a particularly YELLOW bit of yarn. I have discovered that the best way to take pictures of socks in artificial light is to lie on your back on the settee and wave your feet in the air, thus the odd composition (it also makes your ankles look thinner). The colour hasn't come out too well as I had to use the flash.
This is a great pattern, it's easy to knit but not too boring and the finished effect is good. There's a bit of a funny bit where the rib stops and the pattern starts, sort of sticky outy, but I can live with that.
All round jolly pleased, in fact I've bought some more of the Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in another colour (Fall Foliage) as I found it so nice to knit with. I have a couple of patterns in mind for it Crusoe from the Spring '03 issue of Knitty and I like Pomatomus from the latest issue, but think it needs to be done in a greeny bluey colour so am on the lookout for that. Quite fancy doing another pair of Jaywalkers too, maybe as a present?
Once I'd finished those I immediately cast on these:-
They're my Tiger feet.
I'm using the basic pattern that comes with the Opal yarn. Was considering another pair of Jaywalkers, but I didn't want anything to detract from the Tiger Stripeyness of the knitted up yarn.
In addition to this I am HONESTLY going to restart my Tubey this afternoon whilst the rugby is on the box. (Well I may pick up the stitches before the kick off as I need to concentrate for that bit!).I've decided that Tubey is a home knit and that socks are a knitting whilst out and about knit.
I noticed last night that it says on the bottom of the basic sock pattern:
"WARNING Sock Knitting is highly addictive"
They're not kidding are they?????
