They're done!!! Jaywalker pair #2!!!
Specs and Mods:
STR in "Italian Stoneware" (my name for this gorgeous one of a kind rare gem!!)
I worked these socks together using 1 needle in the specified size via the magic loop method. I am a pretty dyed in the wool wooden dpn fan(atic), particularly rosewood needles, so this was a bit of a stretch for me. But you know what? Loved it! When I was done, I was DONE! Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement Shannon!
CO 60 stitches with size 2 Addis. Changed to size 4 after the cuff. Changed to size 1 Addis for the heel flap and turn, I made the flap a wee bit longer than usually called for, as I hate when the heel creeps down! Picked up stitches and continued down the foot and toes with size 2 Addis. They fit close to perfectly, even over the heel! I used two skeins of the old put-up (approx 200 yds each) and had plenty left over. For inquiring minds, I wear a 9-medium in ladies shoes, and 39 medium in birkies.
Drum roll please......
OK ladies....your turn to ante up!!
