There’s just nothing like handknit socks.
Pattern: Grumperina’s Jaywalkers
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill supersock, in “Earth” colorway
Time elapsed: 10 days
Thoughts and Modifications: I futzed with the patter in two ways–first, I made the larger size for the leg and decreased to the smaller size just before beginning the heel flap. This resulted in a sock that fit my much-larger-than-usual calf and my average-sized foot! It’s amazing what you can do when you make your own clothes, people. Amazing.
I also shortened the socks by about an inch, which is a good thing since I have veeeery little yarn left over. I hereby warn all of you shoe size 8.5 women considering Jaywalkers out of CTH!
…and there’s really not much more to say about these socks that hasn’t been said before. They grip the feet oh-so-well, they’re comfy, they’re fun, they’re quick. They literally flew off the needles once I realized I could knit them while reading terribly boring technical specifications!
So if you’re one of the three people out there who haven’t already knit a pair, it’s not too late! Treat your feet!
You know you want to. :)
