Fixies!

Dsc00682I know...  Two days, two FOs -- I think it's a first!  I was so excited, I nearly took a header off the back porch doing that pigeon-toed pose!

I worked on these at Knit Night last night, and finished them off when I got home.  The weather is breaking today -- the humidity is getting less and less as the day goes on, making life more and more comfortable -- but it's still a bit too hot for socks.

FIXIES = Fixation + Footies

Using the free pattern Tootsie's Footsies (PDF) and one ball of Cascade Fixation on 4US DPNs -- there was a tiny bit of yarn leftover.  I bought the yarn at "Knitter's Nook" in Minocqua earlier this month.  I cast on around June 15th and finished on June 26th.  These were fun -- the Fixation is very stretchy and different to knit with, and I think they're going to be comfy little socks.

I have one ball of Fixation left, and I think I'm going to make Bikini Top featured on Knitty Gritty and as seen at Vixenpath.  Heh, yeah, no...  It won't be for me, but I think it could work for one of the girls -- it'll be a fun thing to knit, no matter.

Socks are the perfect hot weather knitting! I'm jealous that your humidity is lessening. Ours is definitely increasing. Ugh.

Using the patented JanOne Sock Shot, I see. You have to be careful of tipping over. Ask me how I know. (Those knee highs just about killed me!)

Super cute! No comment on the bikini top though. ;-)

Cute socks! Great photos, too;-)

FIXIES look comfy... warm weather might be a little toasty with them on... but I bet you can't wait for cooler weather.

I love your bag featured below. So cute!

The name really suits the socks---they are sooooo cute! I love the striping.

My mother made me a bikini once when I was 14. It wasn't a good thing when it got wet. The socks are very cute..DOn't you love the fit of Cascade Fixation? Nicely Done!

What great socks! I bet they fit like a dream! Thanks for the mention! :)

Cute! I've got a couple balls of fixation in the stash, and have been sort of nervous to use it -- I have enough trouble getting socks to fit without adding stretchy yarn to the mix -- but maybe I'll try this....
