In Which the Pirate Makes a Sad Discovery.

This morning I reached into my sock drawer and pulled out a pair of Jaywalkers that I knit a dozen years ago. They haven’t gotten much wear and they still look really good, but… I couldn’t get the sock cuff over my heel. And then I remembered the last time I tried knitting a pair of Jaywalkers. My feet have grown. Dangit.

I guess I’ll be reclaiming this yarn and making something else. Something not Jaywalkers, this time. What a great excuse to spend my morning exploring fingering-weight knitting patterns!

A pair of handknit socks with chevron stripes in purple, gray, white, yellow, pink, and tan.

    Ah, BUMMER. These are beautiful. At least you have the skill to salvage them and make something else with them!

      If I had a friend with feet just slightly smaller than mine, I’d give them away! But I think they’d be too narrow now for most people.
