Come Jaywalk with Me March 22, 2007

We watch the Jaywalkers slowly emerge from their cave.

They peek out. Is it safe?

Peek-a-boo Jaywalkers

They shed their outer shell, and get ready to party.

Watch them frolic in the sun!

Pattern: Surely you’ve heard of the Jaywalkers?
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in Alizarine.
Mods: Worked toe-up. Used the Turkish cast-on and a star toe. I also subtracted 4 stitches from the width of the sock to fit my narrow foot better.

Oh yeah, this is how much yarn I had left over.

Best SeatThe Jaywalkers are drying after their first bath!  I tried last night to get a decent picture with flash, but amazingly that didn’t work.  I’ll try again this afternoon; it’s supposed to be sunny and 72o.  I don’t have a scale to weigh the left over yarn, but I balled it up and posed it next to a Little Person for scale.  I wasn’t even close to running out.

*tink* *tink* *tink*

I forgot a kfb 2 rows back. 

The good news is that I’m working on the leg now!  Expect a FO post in a week or so.

ETA:  I suppose I should mention my stroke of genius on the second Jaywalker.  No, not the mistake!  An actual smart move on my part!  For my gusset increases on the first sock, I used M1 and I kept track of the slipped stitches at the same time.  On the second sock, I thought to myself, “Self, if I used a kfb for my increases instead of a M1, I could stop worrying about that slipped stitch and then I’d have one less thing to remember and therefore one less thing to screw up.” 

Brilliant, right?  Ha.  But I’m proud of myself. 

OK, back to unknitting.
