Last of the Sock Blanks….

After finishing my Fair Isle Mittens, I had a significant amount of SockBlank #3 left and wanted to try to squeeze out a pair of socks.  I am knitting these toe-up, using the short row method for toes and heels, and following Grumperina’s ever popular Jaywalker pattern.

The Jaywalkers are a fun knit and do wonders for selfstriping and varigated yarns.  I knit my first pair of Jaywalkers over the summer using Zitron Trekking (XXL) yarn ——>

  1. They look fabulous! We haven’t got sock blanks here in Australia but I’ve heard about them from the knit picks podcast. Yours look very cool – almost graffiti-like.

  2. Aw, that’s too bad, Cat. They are such a blast. Take a look at my first blog post and you’ll see you are right… these did start looking very much like graffiti!!
