Claudia Handpaint sock

I should have posted this in my last post, but this is the sock I started at Rhinebeck. The yarn is Claudia Handpaint, and I've started a Jaywalker with it. I love the yummy colors. Not sure if this is the right pattern or not -- suggestions are welcome. (Remember -- I dislike pooling and patterns that can't be seen in the variegated yarn!)

  • It should work well - Jaywalkers are the pattern that Cara from January One used so successfully with Socks That Rock. I did Jaywalkers in Cherry Tree Hill last year and got a bit of pooling (pictures are on my Ravelry - Julz91), but it didn't bother me.

  • It will work but personally I love Claudia Handpaint in plain stockinette.

  • Don't look at me: I am the only knitblogger left in the world who's never made a Jaywalker. The yarn is absolutely gorgeous.

  • The yarn is gorgeous. It would make nice Monkeys too.

  • I love Claudia Handpaint. I'm having issues with colors now so maybe I'm not the best to answer here :) I've never knit Jaywalkers, but they generally are pretty decent with handpainted yarn. Monkeys are another good pattern for handpaints, but not always witness my latest failure with the Lornas. I have to second Carole on this, I like them plain.

  • Oh, I loved how the Crazy Monkeys (Los Monos Locos) worked with handpaint...

  • More same brain stuff. I have heard that Claudia pools. No personal experience here yet. I've actually redirected some of my CLaudia to Chevron scarf because of that rumor. I also have heard that Jaywalkers prevent pooling. See what you think.

  • I ditched my Jaywalkers because they were too tight. Commenters validated my problem with them and suggested the Broadripples in general. Try them on when you get some distance in to make sure they'll fit over your heel. Good luck, if they work, they'll be awesome.
