Broadripple Socks


Pattern: Broadripple socks from Knitty
Yarn: Cascade Fixation, colour 9903
Needles: Bamboo dpns in size 3, set of 5
Comments: I love love love these socks. The Cascade yarn was slightly tricky to work with, as I wanted to make sure I didn't over-stretch it when knitting. I may have over-compensated with the second sock, as it's a little looser than the first. The yarn stripes pooled a little too much, but I tweaked where the heel flap went so that the front of each sock looked similar-ish, and the large purple/green pooling was at the back.
Ended up:On my feet or in my sock drawer! I'm keeping these.

I am working with some Fixation now, and it does take a little "getting used to". I love the Broadripples!

I love Fixation and agree that it takes a bit of getting used to. The very first pair of socks I ever knit came out 2 different sizes. I now knit all socks as "2 socks on 2 circs" and never have 2 different sizes. The best part - they are both done which means I don't have to start all over to knt another sock for the other foot.
