FO: Jaywalkers

I love these. So much. My AP test is tomorrow, and I'm planning to wear them (it might be too hot, so I might just carry them!).

Pattern: Jaywalkers by Grumperina
Yarn: Knitterly Vesper Sock, merino and nylon. It's not the softest yarn, but I love the stripes...
Needles: Size 2.25mms dpns, then a 32" circ.
Mods: I didn't really know where to start the heel so, I just sorta made it up. And also, I decreased to 20 sts at the toe instead of decreasing to 28sts (remember the pointy toes? they still exist).

See that heel? See how they actually fit me without tugging and pulling? Isn't great? (before this, I made them about 9.5", this time, about 10". So much better)

(PS, take a look here at this contest!)

Your Jaywalkers look wonderful! Don't you just love it when a pair of socks fits perfectly?

I hope your AP test went well.
