An Old Favorite for Vacation Knitting

I began these socks while I was home on vacation in Tennessee.  The "Jaywalker Sock" pattern is a very good beginner pattern for the new sock knitter.  The yarn used was some wool/bamboo blend that had been given to me a while ago through a swap.  The original idea was to use this yarn to make Cookie A's "Monkey Socks."  I didn't like the self striping pattern of the yarn because it detracted from the pattern of the "Monkey Socks."  The yarn is super soft and feels great against my feet.  The socks could have been more stretchy, though.  I can see me whipping these up for a swap or a quick gift.
