So I finally finished my first pair of Jaywalker socks. As you can see, they're pretty cute, even though one foot is about 1/8 of an inch longer than the other. Oh well. I need to find somebody with narrow, but long feet. Maybe I'll have to try them on the feet of all of my tall, skinny friends. It could be like Cinderella, with socks, and a lesbian subtext!
Seriously, though, I really love this yarn. It's Lorna's Laces and it is self-striping, which is the greatest thing ever! I think that the stress of the last month gave me the motivation to finish the first sock and start/finish the second one, so let's hear it for silver linings. I realized pretty early on (but not too early to do anything about it) that these socks wouldn't fit my feet, so now I am making a second pair in the larger size given, and I hope that they'll fit me! This pair is going to be magenta and white striped, which will look adorable on me!

Here are the beginnings of my new socks. I really like the way the first pair turned out, so I'll stop being so lazy and do more work on these.
