Jaywalker Socks

These socks took me forever to knit.  I was over them way before they were done, and I think they were what caused me to lose my sock knitting mojo!  Today in the sunshine, they look happy and I'll forgive them. 
 I'll let go of the fact that I knit almost a whole sock in the 84 stitch pattern thinking surely that will be big enough only to find out I was WRONG.  So up to 92 stitches around, which just seems wrong on so many levels.  92 stitches? Seriously?!  But I'll let that go, and be proud of how well the yarn works with this pattern and realize it was worth it!
Pattern:  Jaywalker Socks by Grumperina
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Sock yarn in Amethyst Stripe
