Socks!

These socks were on the needles a long while: begun in March and finished in May. But–they are finished and turn out to be a great fit.

The pattern is trusty old Jaywalker by Grumperina.  It isn’t a very stretchy stitch pattern, but once you get these on, they have fabulous staying up power, and they are great for a variegated yarn such as I love to knit.

The yarn has been in my stash for years!  It’s Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Lakeview.  Finally, the perfect project.  I adapted the pattern for my dear friend’s especially slender feet, and they have been my trusty companions not only at WomAdelaide but also on buses and trains and in meetings and coffee shops.  I already have a new friend keeping me company on all such occasions…
