I first casted these socks on in June of 2008. I frogged them once and forgot about them for a while. I tried again in April of last year and they were still far too small. The leg opening wouldn't stretch to fit my really weak ankles. I don't know if I was doing something wrong or if the pattern was just written on the small side. My gauge was on, but the sock was not.
After adding a second "V" to the chevron pattern and being coached to knit a little looser by Will, I finally ended up with one sock that fit. I tossed it in my knitting bag and left it there for a little while.
Eventually, I kicked the S-S-S (second sock syndrome) and forced myself to finish the second.
And there you have it, a fun pair of socks!
Pattern: Jaywalkers (free download @ Ravelry)
Needles: Addi Turbo US Size 1 circulars (magic loop method)
Cost: Free! The yarn was a gift!
Time: We're not going to talk about it.
Notes: These ended being very small (3 times)! I finally decided to modify the pattern to add an extra "V" to the chevron.
Have YOU finished anything lately? Leave a link in the comments, I'd love to see!
