OOOOH! Now I get it...

It was bound to happen. The sock crazed Pink Lemon was going to be jumping on the Jaywalker bandwagon sooner or later. I have to say, now that I've started them, I totally get why everyone is so crazy about this pattern. All these chevron stripes in two pattern rows? Bring it on baby! I'm knitting them in Tess Designer Yarns sock yarn in what I think is the Spring Garden Colorway. I just love the pastel stripey goodness. The stitch pattern takes two seconds to memorize and then you can just drag the socks all over creation without a pattern, just happily knitting zig zag socks. I can't believe it took me this long to figure this out.

Jaywalkers are great and super-easy. Yours look great so far.

Oh man. I tried one and gave up. When I pick it up again I'm calling you right away.

Love those colors!

I must be the only person who hasn't tried this pattern yet! Love the Tess' yarn - so soft and squooshy!

That's it - I'm making them now! I have one sock of two pairs to finish but then it Jaywalker time.

Thanks for the push ;-)
