I'm not a very big fan of variegated yarn, but I acquired this yarn in a trade and I had no idea what to do with it, so naturally, I just made another pair of Jaywalkers! As these started to take shape I worried the colors were a little too wild for me, but luckily my mother loved them, so these became hers.
The only thing I didn't love about working with this yarn was that the colors pooled quite a bit, but mom doesn't mind so I guess I don't either!
