More socks for happy feet

More socks were completed over the end of year break. These are for my daughter, who got to try them out for fit and taste while we were visiting–and what a pleasure it was to be visiting!

The pattern is Jaywalker, by Grumperina, and the yarn is Kathys Fibres Wool/Bamboo/Nylon Sock in Stained Glass.  Jaywalker is not a very stretchy stitch pattern, but it is simple to memorise, a couple of stitch markers make it easy to execute, and it is dramatic in a suitable colourway.  I always love wearing them myself.  I thought the yarn called out for something more than a simple rib.  The lary colours raised eyebrows while they were in progress… but it’s all a question of what the recipient will enjoy, and hopefully she will enjoy these for years to come.
