My first attempt at Jaywalkers didn't turn out very well. They looked great, but they were too narrow to go over my ankle! I'm going to try again with this toe-up version.

I made Wendy's (toeup) Feather and Fan socks, which are similar to the JayWalkers and had the same problem. I solved it by reknitting the legs on bigger needles, but I still don't like them much.

My first pair of Jaywalkers had that exact problem, too. I was more careful when calculating gauge for the second pair!

(In other gauge based news, I have now cast on and frogged my brand new Ranco Multi yarn twice- too small the first time, too big the second time. Turns out 68 sts is the magic number. I'll make attempt no. 3 tomorrow).
