FO Report: Arugula Jaywalkers

Pattern: Jaywalkers by Grumperina
Yarn: Knitpicks Felici, Arugula
Needles: Options US size 1, 2.5mm
Started: March 10, 2008
Finished: March 20, 2008

Modifications: I knit these toe up, with a turkish toe. For the increases, instead of k1fb, I used a m1 increase. Short row heel because I like the way stripes look in a short row heel. Finally a picot edge hem.

I like these very much - the yarn is super soft, and I love the "Jaywalker" effect on the stripes. They do fit a little more snug than they seemed while knitting, but not too snug. And not so snug that I would change the stitch count next time around.

those are beautiful! Nice job!
I have only done one pair w/ a shortrow heel; and when I wear them, the heel is pointy and sticks out away from my foot. :-(
I don't know what I did wrong; but I plan on trying again with MY Jaywalkers. (Which are on hold while I finish Clapotis #2 for a KAL)

I just love Jaywalkers, and I think they look best with stripes. That yarn is gorgeous. I think I need to do another pair of stripey Jaywalkers now.
