The Start of Grumpyness/New Inspiration

Down to the toes. Yes, when I got grumpy with Grumperina's Jaywalkers, in Opal Prisma and when I recently purchased a new ball of Trekking (which I can't keep my eyes off the colorway) well, I just had to design my own sock. I think I will call them the Larkspur Hikers. The blues are as mesmerizing as mountain lupines (larkspurs particularly). I'm lovin' the Eye of the Peacock stitch on the heel.

I had to start the jaywalkers four times to get them to fit right. I ended up on size two needles and I gotta say, these socks don't have much give in the design, and the design, for some reason keep kicking me in the brain, yes, it made my brain hurt to do it(the design). Anyway, I am off to an invite, new gallery down on Santa Fe. Friday's are always fun, places to go, things to do.

Thanks for your comment today - it was a great pick me up! Your socks are looking FAB! (You know - like the FAB FOUR?) ;-)

Hi! Your socks look great. I didn't change anything in the Jaywalker pattern, but I think the design itself doesn't have a lot of give.
