I know everyone and their aunt has knit a pair of Jaywalkers, but I've finally finished mine!
These socks have a bit of a sentimental value because I finished the second one yesterday while waiting to hear Joss Whedon's seminar at Wesleyan. (It was awesome!) They're knit in Knitpicks Memories. I really like the yarn, but the colors I got weren't anything like the picture on the Knitpicks website.

Knitting socks on size 1 needles got a bit boring, so these socks were knit for instant gratification! The yarn is Shepard Worsted in the Vera colorway. I only had one skein and I was worried about running out of yarn, so the leg ribbing is really short. I have a LOT of yarn left over, so I wish I had made them taller...
 The colors are truer in the second picture.

Oh the socks are so great. I know the yarn for the Jaywalkers wasn't what you expected but I think it looks really cool Smiley

Nothing like instant gratification either Cheesy

I never get tired of seeing jaywalkers.  Your's are beautiful, even if the colorway wasn't what you expected.  I think you did a wonderful job.  One of these days I would like to knit some socks. I think I will try something similar to your worsted wt socks, I have a the attention span of a 4 year old (meaning I have a 4 year old to deal with CONSTANTLY!! Roll Eyes)

Your socks are awesome! I am so tempted to make some Jaywalkers! I just have to ask, are you talking about Weslyan University in Rocky Mount, NC? I almost went there if so.  Just wondering, let me know!

Aw thanks!

ImACamel, this Wesleyan is in Connecticut. There seem to be a lot of universities with that name.  Cheesy And you should try Jaywalkers! They're fun socks and show off pretty yarns really well.

The colors in both pairs are very vibrant and engaging. Not being new to knitting (but fairly new to craftster) I've never seen the Jaywalkers before....They're super cute! I guess this means I now have another pattern to add to my "to do" list. Oh boy.

Great Jaywalkers!

I might be one of the few who haven't knitted Jaywalkers yet, but I am sure I will eventually Smiley
