Jaywalkers

These are the second socks I’ve ever knit: Jaywalkers. I finished them last weekend, and just wove in the ends tonight. They’re for my sister, whose feet are a size bigger than mine, so they look floppy and loose on my feet.

The color isn’t very true in either of these: they’re closer to the first one in general, but the red is brighter, closer to the second one, though neither is quite right. Teach me to take pictures in dorm lighting, eh?

The pattern is great: I could see how it was meant to work, and I was able to fiddle with it to make sure it’d fit sis’s feet just right. The patterning keeps it from sagging down your legs when you’re wearing them, and the only thing I’d change about them would be knitting the ribbing at the top on a smaller size needle: as it is it’s mostly decorative, not tight enough to make a difference. Thankfully they don’t need it to stay up!
