Another FO in the mama-of-purl house! Here's a shot of the finished pair:
the colors are somewhat okay after I've messed around with the flash pic a bit...

After looking at another tutorial on the Kitchener stitch for EVERY SINGLE STITCH at the end, I managed to get it right, hooray!

I love having new socks!!!

Where did you get the tutorial on the kitchener stitch? Every time I try it it's a flop.
Those socks are great!!!! I need to get going on some.

I've soooo many skeins of sock yarns around here. I've also decided that I'll make my next pair of socks a Jaywalker. However, I'm wondering whether it'd look as good in plain colour....

Well, I have the blue/grey Meilenweit Magico...but I also have the Black/Grey Regia too...maybe I should do the Jaywalker with them.

However, I seriously need to finish the one side of Meilenweit Fantasie I have at the moment and do the other side of it before I start another sock!

Your Jaywalkers turned out fantastic! Did you "work" the yarn in order to get them to match up, or was it the luck of the draw?

BTW, OMG! I just heard your intro in Quirky Nomads :)!

YAY! Isn't that cool?:-)) Did you check out the info? "In today's podcast, the most adorable baby in the universe makes a brief guest appearance" :-)

Hello again, my darling sockpal:-) Yes, I matched up the socks myself. I used to be a little afraid I'd run out of yarn ( the big feet, ya know;-)) or I just didn't care about having matching socks. I still don't think it's at all neccessary to have matching socks, I just thought I'd try it out...The stripe repeats are so predictable, so it's easy to find exactly the spot on the yarn that you started with...
happy knitting:-)))

Oh I just love those! Yes, I would definitely like a pair just like that ALL to myself, they would put a smile on my face every time I saw my feet :). Would you like these to appear in the gallery?
