Summer of Socks


Well, I’m certainly behind in my blogging!  I did finish the Flame Wave socks for Kiddlebiddle and she loves them.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture yet of her wearing both socks!  This pattern is a quick and easy knit and looks divine.  They are knit with Cascade Fixation and though it took some getting used to, I really liked the feel of the finished socks.  I bought some more of the same yarn for another pair (for me??).  flamewave.jpg

I’ve also just about finished the first of the pair of Undulating Rib socks for Hubby.  They’re being knit with J.Knits which I found somewhat splitty at first.  But since I switched to my KnitPicks DPNs (which are quite pointy!) the socks are sailing along without problem.  undulating-rib.jpg

 Because I can’t have just one pair of socks on the needles, the other night I cast on my second pair of Monkey socks using Louet Gems.  Boy is this a nice soft yarn!  I’ll post new pics as soon as I can.

 Lovin’ the socks.

Today I finished Kiddlebiddle’s FlameWave socks (Favorite Socks).  I knit them in Cascade Fixation (turquoise) and they came out great!  It took me going down needle size twice to get them to fit her skinny leg but they are really cute.  I’ll post a picture of her wearing them after I visit this weekend.  In the meantime, try this:
