artery/xcat--
i think maybe using size 0 needles with this pattern may have caused problems?  did you adjust the pattern? use a diff yarn?  these could be huge probs, but i'm just trying to find the easiest answer to this problem  Undecided
hope it goes better if you decide to try it again!
i used 0s for the most part. 00s on the heel. the fit was great. i might be a loose knitter but i think i just have small feet. i really recommend taking the time out and actually go through the pattern a couple of repeats. it takes a lot of time but hey its better than a droopy sock. good luck!

the only issue i had was the cast on edge... everything else was perfect.... i knit fairly loosely, which is why i went down on needle sizes... as it stands, i have frogged it, and plan on using a different cast on method.  oh well.  other than the top cuff, the socks were great.  c'est la vie.

These socks have made me come to terms with my latent burning desire for a 36" US 1 circ. Or, well, one that's suitably long to allow me to make a pair of socks simultaneously.

You see, I've all but finished one sock, and it fits beautifully, and I really wish that I'd made both at once so that I could be absolutely certain that they would both fit to the same degree of perfection. Now I suspect I'm going to spend quite some time hunched over my completed sock, counting itty bitty stitches in order to place the shaping of the second sock at exactly the same places. >_<

I'm with you juniper!  I've had some problems (minor ones) being that this is my first ever sock...but I'm definitely sure I've deviated from the pattern in some spots...and trying to figure those out in order to make a matching pair??!?!?

Is 36" long enough for 2 at a time?  Do you magic loop or use 2 circs?

I'm fairly certain you can do magic loop for 2 socks at once. It works in my head, at any rate.


I think the only way I really deviated from the pattern was when i started the toe shaping. I noticed a lot of the finished jaywalkers have straight (not chevron) stripes across the toes, but I kept my chevrons going for as long as I could.

you can totally work 2 socks with the Magic Loop...casting on is a bit of a pain but after that-- butter.

I got my yarn and needles for this earlier in the week. I have now decided to to put these off just for a few weeks so they can be my Knitting Olympics project.
This may actually give my a chance to work on socks and a beanie for my husband. Oh well, no rush it is the middle of summer here. Plenty of other WIPs to work on too.
