As soon as I saw Anna’s sexy tabby socks, I immediately knew what my next sock would be. In keeping with my pattern of finishing a sock and moving on to a new colorway before coming back to the second sock (which works great by the way!), I cast on in STR Pop Rocks. I hope you can tell how freaking adorable the picot edge is on the jaywalker – the pattern pulls it in so nicely so that it ruffles out all on its own! I just completely ripped off Anna: three knit rows, yo k2tog row, three knit rows, join. I did one knit row before starting repeats. That’s fifteen repeats in the picture and I’m only going to do 20 before I start the heel flap. When I weighed this skein (I weigh all my smaller STR skeins before I knit them) it was a tad light, so I figure I’m not going to take any chances. Plus I think the picot edging will look better with a shorter sock. Now to find me some come hither heels for the final photoshoot! Thanks Anna for a great modification!
But I don’t want to!
