Cascade fixation, #9843
Pattern - Emily's from http://yarnmiracle.gweezlebur.com/patterns.html
Knitting details: Size 3 needles, cast on 48and did a 3x1 ribbing throughout the sock, along with my normal heel (eye of partridge) and toe (grafted).
If I were to do it again, I would cast on 54 and use a size 2 needle to get a denser fabric. I did one with hiya-hiya needles and one with kntpicks needles. Love both needles. Perhaps that explains the different pooling effect. Started using Inox on one and ended up switching - they were sticky with the fixation. Perhaps that explains the different pooling effect. I have decided I don't like Inox needles and will probably end up selling mine. ICK.
I am hoping to get more socks done this month! I started these in late July but they got sidelined for some other projects. These socks are a bit stretched - I wore them yesterday, so they are showing some dirt too but I was so excited I had to get them posted!
How do you like those blockers? Aren't they adorable???? Chappy did them - well worth EVERY penny! Every labradork owner needs lab sock blockers!
