finished jaywalkers

Lorinda, my Secret Pal 9 hostess, asked us to talk about our favorite FO so far. Well, mine just happens to be my first pair of Jaywalkers, fresh off the needles this week! I loved this pattern so much. It was so simple but gave such a great result. The socks fit me great, and I wore them all day yesterday. This pair has definetly gotten me addicted to Cherry Tree Hill. Without further ado, the picture:

I am to the heel on my grandma's first sock, made of the lavendar Cascade Fixation. This yarn is interesting to me. I thought it would be hard to keep gauge with the elastic content, but the sock is going great, and so quick. I am doing just plain stockinette for this one, with a ribbed cuff and a short row heel. Nothing like trying out a new technique.

Awesome! Did you send the photo to Grumperina for her gallery?

I did! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm an even 50-something number!

Very nice! I haven't made Jaywalkers yet as I need to get thin enough yarn for them. But I can't wait to!
