How time flies...

...when it's peeing down outside. Yes it has rained all day long (it's bank holiday weekend, what else do you expect?) so I've managed to finish the jaywalkers:


Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina.
Yarn: Posh Yarn Sophia 4ply. Colourway: Tada!
Size: Shoe size 8 (UK)
Knit for: My sis
Comments: My first patterned socks. I love this yarn, cashmere is definately the way to go! I made one mistake - didn't read the pattern and slipped the heel stitches knitwise when they should have been purlwise but I still like the effect.

Love the socks!! The Baby Jays pattern is a bit on the vague side and assumes you know how to cast on for a toe up sock and how to do a short row heel. Knitty has a great tutorial somewhere all about toe up socks if you need help but the Baby Jays are so much quicker than big ones! Good luck!

Hurrah - the rainy weather is good for something other than the garden! They look really lovely.
