Regia Jaywalkers

Regia Jaywalkers

The '70s called and they want their socks back!

Yarn: regia (not sure what color)
Pattern: Jawalker
Needles: 2 Inox 2.5 mm circs
Modification: Sherman Heel

I got this yarn as a gift from Cindi when she went to Germany. I used these socks as car knitting or knitting where I needed to be able to pick them up and put them down in the middle of a row where needed. In otherwords, easy knitting! They fit perfectly, have been through the wash, have softened up, and I think will wear well. The Inox needles are okay, the point is really sharp but the join isn't as smooth as the addi turbos. I think the join is an issue for a tight knitter but not as much for a looser one. I don't find them unusuable or anything.

My 3rd completed pair of Jaywalkers!

And what I really like about these socks?
They are almost a perfect match!
