I finally have a pair of the long-coveted Jaywalkers!

Pattern: Jaywalkers from MagKnits

Yarn: 2 50g skeins of Schachenmayr Regia Ringel, 75% New Wool, 25% Polyamide. Yarn was kindly gifted by the Flying Poodle. Thanks, Poodle!

Notions: 5 aluminum Boye dpns in size #1 US

Notes: I have size 7 feet, and thin legs, but I made the larger sized sock all the same. I tried twice before with the small size, but could not get the sock over my foot.

I loved making this sock, especially with a stripey yarn like this Regia where it makes the zigs zag so well.

Awesome! Love the striping action! :)

Fantabulous! I'm glad the yarn found some good feet to warm.

Don't forget to send a pic to Grumperina, you may win a prize!

Hm. Veeery interestink. I had my doubts about jaywalking with the stripe/smoodle/stripe/smoodle colored yarn. However, your results are fabulous. I might have to give in and just do it.

And great tips on the sizes...my feet are the same size, but I get the feeling my ankles might be tree trunky. ;-)
