It's a pair!

Not that they fit very well — I probably won't use this heel style again, though it was really fun to execute for some reason — but they are super soft, and I think they're pretty.

I have to wonder, though — why do I keep buying variegated sock yarn when I really prefer sock styles (esp. cables) that look good in solids?

It's partly that "looks so great in the skein" thing. I see why people have so much sock yarn stash they don't knit. And I think it's partly because it seems wasteful to spend lots of money on yarn that's "only boring solids". Why? I don't know. Silly.

(Guess I gotta start making some Jaywalkers to use up all these stripey things.)

As usual, very nice! The yellow gives them such a bright feeling. I love varigated yarn and you're right - it just seduces you. I'm looking forward to trying different heels. I have solid, square feet with wide heels. So far I haven't had any problem with fitting but my "n" is small. : - )
