The socks are done...and yes, the stripes don't line up. He didn't want them to. AND the yarn-over cable is NOT on the top of the foot...he didn't want it there. He wanted hiking type socks so -- voila.
I've been working on the Jaywalker which I'd cast on in a moment of quiet and have been carrying around for that moment when the Boyfriend Socks were done...
I'm using some of the yarn I bought on my trip to DC a few weeks ago:
OnLine SUPERSOCKE 100 SUMMER - COLOR
Made in Italy
Content: 45% cotton, 40% virgin wool, 15% polyamid
So these Jaywalkers are what I'll be carrying around. When I'm at home I'm still working on the shrug.
Back to work I go. Cheers!
