jaywalkers! by KnitXcorE, on Flickr

I finally finished these socks! I've casted on for them more than four times. I had a lot of issues with the fit. They kept coming out insanely tight, and with no stretch.
I eventually ended up adding two extra sections of chevron so I would be able to pull them over my ankles.
It's funny, I have really thin legs but these socks just weren't working with the dimensions in the pattern. My gauge was on, so it wasn't me. IDK!
I'm so glad that they are finally finished and that the fit me!

Socks=0, Robbie=1

YAY!
