LUrking.......Would it be hard to make this sock for a size 11 women's shoe?

It would just be more knitting. You just repeat the pattern until you reach the point in which you want to start your toe.

If you're using the recommended yarn, do you think that would be enough for a sz.11 shoe?Huh how much do you have left over when you make a regular size?

xcriot, I have size 9 feet and used a 2-socks-worth skein of Opal sock yarn (don't have the ball band, so don't know how many yards/meters, sorry), and had plenty left over. If you're worried, you can always make shorty socks, too. You're supposed to do 7 inches (I think) before you start the heel flap, so you could cut down on that. Hope that helps  Smiley

I just snuck over here to say FANTABULOUS JOB EVERYONE!! I'm just learning how to knit socks but this pattern is #2 on my list (after my first basic pair)...

btw Juniper...I always say socks that don't exactly match up just have more personality than the others  Wink

well, it looks like I just jumped on the jaywalking bandwagon Smiley I decided it's the perfect project to knit while I"m on the bus to/from work (I'm on the bus about three hours a day)

I'll post a pic of what I"ve got when the repeats start showing a little better Smiley

Ohh, I forgot someone started a KAL for these! I started my Jaywalker a couple of days ago, and have been knitting sporadically on it.

I love the way it's knitting up, and am considering making another 40 pairs of Jaywalkers. Cheesy

This is how mine are going.




Unfortunately, it's about one in the morning right now, so I couldn't use any natural light. ::grins:: If you want to see a more accurate picture of what the colors look like, you can check it out http://www.angoravalley.com/yarns/rainier.jpg. Since they are all hand-dyed my skein is a bit darker than these colors.
