Jaywalker socks done


The Specs:

Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Firestorm

Pattern: Jaywalker socks, by Grumperina

Size: the smallest size offered in the pattern. I knit the cuff to 6" because I was concerned about yardage, but based on the leftovers, I probably could have gone to 6.5".

Needles: Size 1 DPNs

These socks are great. The yarn is quite soft, and has wonderful deep colors. They fit great, and I even sent them through the wash (dryer too!) without incident. Thanks for a rockin pattern, Grumperina! I'd totally knit these socks again, maybe toe-up next time.

Your socks look great. I love the colors. Looks like they will keep your feet happy and warm.

Ooo, I'm glad the Bearfoot worked out for you - they look great! Should I put them in the gallery?

Great socks! I just added that to my to do list.

Great job!

I love your socks! And I'm glad to see a pair in Bearfoot - that's the yarn I think I'm going to make mine in. Great job!



they are beautiful! funny, i just cast on for a jaywalker myself earlier today.

love your bearfoot colourway! i love my bearfoot socks - they are so comfy and warm; my new faves this winter.

Nice job! Those look great! I love that colorway.

They're great! Love the colors.

They look great! I have some Jaywalkers on the needles too, but I'm having yardage worries too. (I'm using KnitPicks Sock Landscape.) I'm thinking of starting the second one toe-up, and seeing how long I can make them. Then I'll rip the first one if I have to.

cute socks!! so many people are knitting this pattern. i know i'll have to make it soon.

Cute socks. I love the colors and they look warm and comfy.

Bearfoot is great yarn, but be careful about that dryer stuff. I don't know if it's because of the mohair, but it will felt. Lovely socks.

the socks look great! and super comfortable. is bearfoot a superwash? also... i'm pretty sensitive to mohair content. is the fiber itchy at all?


Great socks. That pattern is really cool looking...wonderful colors.

Love the socks - those colors are great!


Hmmmm.....Now I think I know what to make out of my bearfoot. They came out great!

I'm so glad you don't find the bearfoot too itchy. They look fabulous. Nice work!

Those are great! I'll add Jaywalker to my "must knit" list.
