About a week ago Grumperina announced that over 500 had been made (and that is only the ones that she knows about.) Wow!
So of course, I had to find out what all the fuss was about.
What we wont do for pictures! This is my foot propped up on the fridge. I was trying to get a good picture of the sock without showing off my very white, very hairy legs. Hey it's still March, talk to me in April..maybe I will have shaved them by then. =)
Anyway, I am really liking the way these are knitting up. The pattern is fun and easy. And what it does for the yarn? YUM!
There is only a slight amount of pooling in the foot. And I think that is a result of only doing the patterning on the top of the foot,while the bottom is in stockinette. But hey, I can deal with that.
These are somewhat slow going because I keep getting interrupted by other things..like store samples, sock madness, Dulaan knitting, Forest Path Stole, etc.etc...but I am loving every minute of it.
I very rarely do a project more then once, but I am already thinking about other yarns in my stash that would look great in this pattern. People say Jaywalker's are addicting. I can understand why.
Oh BTW. These are the socks done on the 000's and they are being done with Socks That Rock lightweight..I misplaced the yarn band so I don't remember the color. I hate when I do that! Hopefully a little cleaning will help me find it. If anyone knows the color, give a shout out OK?
Oh and if anyone is wondering where to get the pattern..here it is:

Until next time...
