Return of the Jaywalker!

Sounds kind of ominous, doesn't it?

Please ignore the misshappen rewound skein of sock garden. That's the best I could do until my beloved buys me a ballwinder. But I think they are actually working.

Things I'm doing differently... Since it was clear that the 76 stitch version would not fit over my heel on size 1 addis, I had a choice. Go up in needle size or go up in stitch count. I decided to do the 84 stitch version. But I hated the way the ribbing flared everytime I did them. So I did the ribbing on size 0 addis. I think I will also use the size 0 addis to tighten up the sole area.

Interesting note. Instead of pooling, the 84 stitch version in hydrangea is striping now. Looks pretty though.

Those look great! I've just given up on the jaywalkers. Kudos to you for sticking with it.

Definitely prettier with the stripes than the pooling. But you can't Jaywalk and knit sleeves at the same time. Just sayin'
