Jaywalking is all about breaking the rules, defying the Man and, in my case, not following the pattern.
A proper Jaywalker should look like this (scroll down for the closeup, and admire the adorable baby gear while you're there).
The raised stitches on my jaywalker sock look more like this...
Turns out that when you're making the bumpy parts, you're supposed to slip two stitches TOGETHER, not one after another. I'm just going to think of these socks as being knitted in the true jaywalker scofflaw (or scoffpattern) spirit.
