54. FO - Jaywalkers

I finally finished my Jaywalkers! (ravelry). They look wonderful! This is my first pair of socks that I've knit the hell into as I was going, the other ones were all using the afterthought heel.

A couple of photos? Oh, why yes.

Yarn : Claudia Hand Painted yarns in Fingering Weight from The Yarnery in St.Paul, MN
Needles : US 1

Notes : I was a little on the dumb side when I bought the yarn for these socks and didn't read the pattern on how much I would need so I just figured - 2 skeins, 2 socks!. Soon I came to find out I was going to run out of yarn for the toe's and had no idea what I was going to do. Luckily, I impulsively buy things on eBay and I picked up some Rowan Cotton Glace and that worked out perfectly for the toe.I am quite happy with them. Now I'm working on the scarf for Scarfy-Cardi. I'm almost wondering if I should have made the scarf wider? I'm not sure. If anything though I have decided I am going to knit onto the front.

This will all make much more sense when I get some photos. Ha.

Thats all for now.

They turned out well! And once they're in your shoes, nobody sees the toes anyhow.

Your Jaywalkers look killer! I've always wanted to do that pattern but got frightened off by yarnyoldkim's bad experience. I personally like different color toes.
