Hiding the Jogs

I have one of my "purse" socks done. By that I mean the socks that live in my purse. They are my emergency knits. I never leave home without them.

They are also rescue socks because I rescued them from the frog pond. They used to be Jaywalkers. Now they are striped. By using a tweed and a variegated yarn, I discovered the secret to jogless stripes that doesn't involve any stitch manipulation at all. The jogs are there. Look closely. The tweedy bits and the polka dot yarn do a pretty darn good job of camouflaging them, don't they?


  1. I love that socks live in your purse!!!!!!!!!!! That's just awesome! I just have the best time reading your blog!


  2. I love stripes. That's a good trick to camouflage the jog.
