    At last, the saga of the Jaywalkers is over. While the pattern was interesting to knit, these wouldn't be my favorite socks to wear—too slouchy; I need me some ribbing.

    The only redeeming quality is the LOVELY Scout's Swag yarn. I adore the colors and the wool itself feels fabulous.

      I agree, the colors are Fabulous! too bad I can't feel how soft they are.

      Colors are delicous...I think I like the 'pooling' of the blues in the sock's instep the best :)

      The yarn combines my most favorite color (blue) and my least favorite color (orange). Ordinarily I'd balk at such a travesty, but in this case it works beautifully. I've not made Jaywalker before, not having a huge amount of sock knitting under my belt, but it appears I'd have to do a bit of adjusting to knit them for my feet.

      Oh they are so fantastic!!! Did I tell you that I've dyed about 3-4 skeins of this for other people? It's a hit!

      Love the pooling - too bad about the lack of ribbing.

      Thanks, everyone! All the color credit needs to go to Ms. Scout. I only have a smidge left and I already have an idea for some interesting colorwork. I know I'll be ordering more!

      These guys were just washed this afternoon and are drying and I've got to figure out what my next pair will be... perhaps Lisa Souza?
