Another pair of Jaywalkers

I think I've fallen in love with this pattern - Grumperina's "Jaywalkers". I love the way it works with self-striping yarns - breaking the pattern up a bit without competing with it.

The yarn is a beauty too - 80% bamboo with a little nylon for wear. It feels so soft & luscious, even if it is a little splitty to knit with. Wendy's "Happy" in colourway Aquarius for those of you playing at home. Blues, purples, aquary-greens with a little pink for zing - yum!

Although I love these ones, I feel they are destined for feet other than mine. I get the distinct feeling that as soon as my dear daughter sees/feels them, they will miraculously disappear into her suitcase when she comes to visit after xmas (can't wait to see you honey!).
