Jaywalker Socks

Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina from MagKnits

Koigu Premium Merino, semi-solidin color 1014, 2 skeins

Needles: US 0

Dates: August 24 - October 6, 2006

Comments: I love the way these socks look. The Koigu is beautiful, and the pattern really brings out the subtle striping of it. These are not loose socks, and take a bit to get on, but they feel very nice once they're on.

It was my first time knitting with such tiny needles, but I love the tight feel of the fabric it created. It took me a bit to get used to them, and the double decrease in this pattern was a nightmare the first few rows that I had to do it. But in the end, I'm very happy with these.

These are for my mom for Christmas.
