Okay, so I was one of those knitters who said, "I'll never knit a pair of socks. That's just crazy." So you'll be surprised to see my FO.

Meet Jaywalker.

Pattern: Jaywalker
Designer: Grumperina
Yarn: Schachenmayr Kaffe Fassett 4 ply mirage fire

Result: What a great pattern. She really knows how to design. The pattern was very easy to follow. There were no fussy stitches. I used a You Tube tutorial for the kitchener stitch. The final product looks and feels great! I'm converted. Now I want all my socks to be handknit wonders. Grumperina gets five stars.


thank you everyone for all the great comments. i really appreciate it. the hooked wool rug on my header was bought at a local antique shop. i just love it and thought it would make a great header. it is not signed anywhere so i don't know who made it.

I LOVE jaywalkers! They are easy enough to memorize, and a great way to use striping or variegated yarn!

Welcome to blogland!

I do love your Jaywalkers (yeah, theyre on my to-do list), and am very interested to see that Kaffe Fasset yarn has knitted up so nicely. there is some marinating in my stash, and now I think it might be just about ready for airing.

Hi, Not a regular Knitter but a regular admirer! Sadly the header photo is not coming up for me today...the "blog fairies" are making things difficult. Hang in there and welcome to blogland!
