Fresh Jaywalkers, hot off the needles! These are my first Jaywalkers, but not my last. All the details: Tess Yarns sock yarn in the Spring Garden colorway. Knit on US size 1's in the smallest size. Pattern is free on Magknits (I'm feeling a bit lazy in the links department today - feel free to Google). For the most part I followed the pattern. I used Make One increases instead of knitting into the front and back for my increases and there were a couple of details I changed in the heel area, but that was just because I almost always do them the same way and changing things would mean I'd have to keep the instructions with me at all times which I'm just not willing to do for a sock with a two round repeat. This is a great sock pattern and she's not kidding when she says that they don't fall down. Something about the stitch pattern gives them a bit more structure than usual. LOVE THEM!

They're great!

I'm not sure if you've been following Grumperina's blog, but she gives out fabulous prizes for every 50th pair of Jaywalkers submitted to her gallery. You might want to check it out!

Your Jays are beautiful. It's one of may favorite sock patterns and I too love that they don't fall down when you wear them.

"Here is the leg to the second cuff and you have to ask yourself one question - will the heel flap work its magic for the second sock or was that a one time only thing?"

Well? :-)I can't tell from the photo, but it looks as thought you may have indeed got lucky.
