... So. Much. Work. What if I snag them? Or wear them out? Can you tell that these are my first socks? And that there was some ripping and reknitting involved in the creation of these socks?

The Jaywalkers:



The Details:
Pattern: Jaywalker from Magknits
Begun: 4/5/07 Finished: 5/12/07
Size: Calculated two sizes smaller than the smaller size
Yarn: Knitpicks Bare Superwash sock yarn, Kool-Aid dyed
Needles: 2 sets of #1 Knitpicks classic circulars
Mods: I knit them together on the two circulars until I got to the heel flap, at which point I couldn't figure out how to continue both together (and was too lazy to look it up). I finished the socks individually on two needles.
Thoughts: Not so bad. I think I might even like this sock knitting thing. I did have some trouble with the first heel, but no trouble with the second. The pattern is written quite well. I was just a sock moron.

But they are too great to not wear! Those are some of the most cheerful, peppy socks I have seen, and it would be next to impossible to have a bad day wearing them!

They look great!  I'm scared to start socks.  I don't know why.  It's not like they are going to turn on me in the night, or something!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

That is, ultimately, the best thing about knitting socks--if you love 'em, you'll eventually walk right through them, so make as many as possible! They're probably one of the most useful things you can knit. Enjoy wearing your socks, and get knitting on some more  Grin

I love the little splotch of orange at the toes, they're like little sock smiles!

Great job, and I totally agree.  At the rate I lose socks, holy crap!  I have two pair that I've made and have only worn one pair to bed.

Ohhhh I love these! They are beautiful! Yeah I know how you feel, I'm that way with sweaters I make and I'm not brave enough to knit socks even though I want too.

your jaywalkers are goregeous!!! I'm in love with that yarn. I think you should wear them as much as you can- you can always make more, as everyone has said.
