Jaywalkers Done!

I finished the Jaywalkers for my MIL yesterday.

Yarn: Tofutsies
Color: #733
Needles: 2 mm

A fun pattern and an excellent yarn. They are beautiful and soft and I think she will love them.

After I wove in all of the ends, I cast on these (again!) for my FIL.

These were originally going to be Jaywalkers, but that didn’t work out. Then they were going to be plain old double ribbed socks. I wasn’t too thrilled with that either. Now I am doing two socks at a time in a 5×1 rib. I’m going to call them Toe-up Tigers.

A note on knitting my first two-at-a-time-toe-up pair. I can’t help but think they look like boobs.

  1. When I posted a similar pic of my first 2 at a time toe up socks I got a comment that they looked like boobs. Now every time I see that pic all I can think of is they look like boobs, not socks.

  2. Love your jaywalkers and your boobs – I mean Toe-up Tigers. I’ve only knit socks on dpns and really want to try circulars. Then I see you doing 2 socks on 1 circ . . . yikes. Is it difficult?

  3. Forgot to mention that we both went to see the Yarn Harlot. Such a great speaker – so funny and so entertaining. So glad I went.

  4. That is so strange! I guess I have never seen tiger stripped boobs. I need to spend more time in locker rooms or something.

    But they do look great! Even for boobs.

  5. You are really taking this summer of socks thing seriously. You are my hero. I keep getting sidetracked, but your Jaywalkers may just inspire me to get back on track. They’re beautiful.
