FO: Not-so-hideous Jaywalkers
I knit these toe-up, and when I was working on the feet I was horrified at how ugly they were turning out. Now that they're finished, I'm pretty pleased with the result :) Now I'm off to finish a hat for my mom! :knitting:

For more pictures, take a look at my ravelry page.

Hey, yeah, those didn't turn out so hideous after all. LOL The yarn did some really neat things on the leg part, and the big blotches on the feet don't look bad once the whole sock is there.

Very nice knitting. They look and fit great. Great toes. :cheering:

It is interesting how different the socks look in the two views you show. Looking down at your two feet the zig-zags kind of disappear, but they show up very well from the side.

They look fantastic. Love the zigzag effect with the colors.

Haha, I'm fairly fast but nothing to write home about. I just have a lot of time to knit since I'm a housewife with no kids atm. Even so, it took me about 8 days to finish.

That I am :) They're very comfy, too! (wearing them now)

As much of a pain as they are, I love to knit socks! I just wish they weren't so time-consuming.
