I wasn't trying for identical.



Which is a good thing, as I'd have been disappointed. But I love, love, love these socks! SO comfy. I want to wear them all the time, despite the heat. Finished in 1 week, using Cascade Fixation and US size #2 dpns. April, sorry, but I'm starting to actually.. LIKE.. knitting with Fixation. Wacky.

There was a bunch of yarn left, because I'd made the legs shorter than trek's pattern, so I decided to make some newborn socks. I put together a pretty simple pattern which I'll try to get posted soon. The only cute tricks are that I put a little ribbing under the foot to help the sock stay on, and that I did a modified round toe using garter stitch.

Sorry about the blurry picture, but aren't they irresistible? Now I just need to find someone who just had a baby.

I'm making progress on the Jo Sharp sofa cushion, but there just isn't much to see. It's miles of endless booboos. I knit 1 row, I rip out 2/3 of the row and fix it. I don't know how I can make so many mistakes with such a simple pattern, but I do.

I started some secret yarnination tonight! If all goes well, you can see it in a week :-)

Nice socks - great color! I've been wanting to try Fixation myself, but I need to knit down stash a bit first. I'm glad to hear you came to like it, that bodes better for me. :)

Woo hoo! What cute socks. Well done!

There is something about simple patterns that is so difficult. I know just what you mean
