Seattle Jaywalkers

Here are my Seattle Jaywalkers (which I had previously named my Seattle Socks) finished & ready to wear on a cold rainy Seattle day. Except...I don't live in Seattle anymore so I'll just have to wait for a cooler rainy California day.
Yarn: KnitPicks Simple Stripes (colorway discontinued)
Needles: Addis Turbo circular size 1US
Pattern: Jaywalker by Grumperina
Comments: I really loved making this 2nd pair of Jaywalker socks and I know this pattern will probably be a staple in my favorite sock patterns. This of course is easy to say since I've only used 4 different sock patterns so far. Next time I make the Jaywalker socks though, I may try to figure out how to do them toe-up with Judy's Magic Cast-On. I've already tried out her toe-up cast on & it is very easy & honestly..it is magic! Now I just need to find a pattern written toe-up that I like, or I'll have to figure out how to re-write the patterns I currently have. (bummer)

Ah... you're too kind! :-)

You know, I've been dying for someone to knit the Tangled Up In Blue pattern on my blog. If you don't like the ribbing, you can use any stitch pattern with that general sock construction.

Jaywalkers are the best, huh? I'm on my third pair, and still loving the pattern. Yours look great!

Oh my goodness, these look terrific! MUCH better than the ones I made for my sis for Christmas (but don't tell her that...). Great job!
