Jaywalker finale

Here they are, sorry it took so long. Work's been busy, and Gazer's been hooked on Star Wars' Knights of the Old Republic II: Sith Lords for awhile so computer time at home was hard to come by. *wink* I want to play it some day, but don't have a clue when I'll have the time.

Base Pattern: Grumperina's Jaywalker socks

Yarn: Trekking XXL, color 134

Needles: US 1 dpns

The zigzags didn't photograph very well, but at least the colors are right. I'm glad I blogged the process, turning this into a major learning experience. It turned out to be a good thing that I'd put the first sock aside and started with the second one, as I hadn't split the original ball in half as evenly as I'd thought. I finished the first sock with just over a yard to spare; I've got two full stripes' worth left from the second one.

Now that I look at them side by side, I also apparently reversed directions when I frogged and rewound that first attempt. I knew I wouldn't have enough yarn to get the stripes to line up with each other so I didn't bother, but they ended up running in opposite directions.

If I use this yarn again I think I'll try getting a set of US 0 needles first, the fabric's a little looser weave than it probably should be.
