Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina
Yarn: Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, Summer Rose colorway (a.k.a. "Frank Socks")
Yarn Source: The Loopy Ewe
Needles: 2 US0 24" Addi Turbos
Modifications: I made the toe-up version on two circulars using short row toes and heels. I also shortened the length slightly. I also used a US3 for the bind-off.
Date Completed: February 19, 2007
Comments: What a fun pattern! I especially love how the pink/green and green/purple sections of the socks turned out. I chose this colorway as part of the Loopy Quarterly Challenge . I will definitely make another pair of socks using this pattern - in, you guessed it, a more Martha-like colorway. Overall, I will have to say, it was a blast to pick something outside my normal color range and see how it knitted up. Thanks Sheri for the great idea!!
Otherwise, I am enjoying my 3 day weekend. Thanks to my wonderful cousin, I was able to catch a performance of Carnival! last night at the KC. It was a wonderful performance based on Lili - which I have watched a number of times on TCM.
In knitting news, I plan to work on my second cable sock -- how I've missed thee!
