Hi everyone! Happy New Year!!!

I noticed there was no craftster KAL for Grumperina's famous Jaywalker Socks, so I figured we need one!

Cara at January One  is hosting a KAL on her blog but there isn't a place to post questions if you need help. Don't forget to stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday!

For those of us (like me!) who've never knit socks before, let's do this thing together Smiley (And I may need help when I get to the heel...)

Here's my progress so far:

I'm using Vesper Sock Yarn on size 1 DPNs.

So, if you haven't cast on yet, what are you waiting for???

im almost done with the first one but ive hit a rather large speed bump. im very confused on what to do with the foot section.
this part right here.
*Foot
Continue even in established pattern (including the slipped stitches mentioned above) until foot measures 2 inches (5 cm) less than desired finished length. End with round 1 of zigzag pattern.*
does that mean established pattern including the decreases --
*Round 1: Work to 3 sts from end of needle #1, k2tog, k1. Work instep sts in established pattern (round 1 of zigzag pattern). K1, ssk at beginning of needle #4, work to end.
Round 2: Work to 1 st from end of needle #1, sl1. Work instep sts in established pattern (round 2 of zigzag pattern). Sl1 at beginning of needle #4, work to end. *

what would be the established pattern? those two rounds with the decreases? OR the original zigzag pattern?

katatonic, I took that to mean that you would do needle #1 straight knitting, then the zig-zag pattern across needles #2 and #3, then back to straight knitting on needle #4.  No decreases. But you would continue the slipped stitch detail.  The way it turned out for me, the slipped stich rounds coincided with the zig-zag patterning rounds (as opposed to the knit-every-stitch rounds).
