Inspired by Cara's new Jaywalker socks, I decided to cast on for a small pair of Jaywalkers. I really loved the picot edge on the top of the sock. And since my nieces' felted slippers didn't quite work out (pictures to come) for the holidays, I told them I would make them a pair of socks. They even got to pick out their own yarn (ahem, pictures coming soon). However, I got about three inches of 2x2 ribbing in on the one sock, and thought "God, this is boring" so I ripped. Plus, I wanted something fun and cute for a little girl. What funner, cuter thing is there than a picot edge? Nothing.
One minor problem, though. I'm not entirely sure how to turn the picot edge over. Here's how the picot is created:
Cast on X stitches.
Knit three rounds.
*Yo K2tog* entire round
Knit three rounds
Pick stitches along top, turning the fabric so the yo's are now on top.
It's #5 that's got me stumped. I'm just not entirely sure how to do that. But I'll figure it out. And when I do, I'm posting instructions. With pictures, of course.
To answer chittavrtti's question about what kind of books I like, take a look at my Amazon Wish List. This should give you a clue as to the type of suggestions for books I'd like to read this year. I finished book #1 for the year tonight. 51 to go!
