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.
