Pattern: Jaywalker Socks modified to be knit toe up and both at the same time as I am wont to do to prevent wonky gauge and second sock syndrome
Yarn: Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock in Black Purl colorway
Needle Size: US 1
Comments: The Pattern (and modification) proved to be plenty easy to follow - as usual, I have just the slightest of holes at the join post gusset & heel flap, but those will be easily hidden/mended with a darning needle. Because I failed to swatch, I had to take in a few stitches after I started on the zig zag patterning in order to make the socks fit more closely - but otherwise, everything was pulled off without a hitch! Of course, I still have a fair bit of yarn left over, and I'm now trying to see if I can get a pair of anklets out of it.
