If Jaywalking is a crime you better lock me up, baby!

LOOK! I got my first Jaywalker done! I am in love with this sock! I know I say that about every sock I knit, but this time its real! Isn't it just yummy? This is also the strangest looking sock I've ever seen when its not on a foot. When its by itself, its kind of this sad, wrinkly lump of a sock, but when you put it on, then it becomes socky perfection. Does anyone know if Jaywalkers look better after they are blocked? I mean I'm sure it will look better after blocking, everything looks better after blocking (would I look better after blocking?) but does it lie flat like most socks do or does it always need a foot in it? Will I have to get mannequin feet to hold my Jaywalkers when I'm not wearing them? I really don't have room in my sock drawer for mannequin feet. I'm actually running out of room in my sock drawer anyway - thinking of making my bra drawer a second sock drawer - I don't think the stupid bras really need their own drawer anyway. You can't knit a bra. They could share a drawer with the pajamas. I'm off to rearrange my drawers now. Does anyone know where I can get mannequin feet?

It looks fantastic, Melanie! What yarn did you use? Hooray for more jaywalkers!

Your Jaywalkers are so beautiful! :)

Which size did you knit? I used the smaller size but on larger needles and I think it turned out just a little too big for my foot, although I still plan to wear it.

Like jenknits' comment from the other day, I sometimes feel like I'm the only knitter who hasn't knit a pair of jaywalkers. Soon I hope to join the "in" crowd, though. ;)

Your socks came out beautiful. As for looking funny off the foot, nothing can look as odd as an entrelac sock -- those things look like a giant knitted goiter when they are not being worn! LOL

Nice job on the Jaywalker but you always do a nice job! This is such a fun sock to knit I'm finding it hard to put it down. It's good to know that your Jaywalkers are wrinkly, too. I was beginning to think that I was doing something wrong. I can't wait to see your finished pair!

Hey, I really love your Jaywalker! The yarn you used for it seems to be perfect to make the pattern really "jump out" - great work!
I didn't block mine, but saw a couple pics of blocked Jaywalkers, and they looked even better than unblocked, so perhaps you should really try that? But not that I'd think that would be necessary, I think yours is perfect!

My deepest and biggest drawer has always been my sock drawer! From the time I was in 3rd grade, I have always had more socks than anything. I support socks taking over a whole dresser if possible! Mindy
