I cast on two new projects yesterday.
And you know what? They're both socks.
I know. I'm crazy. SOCK CRAZY!!!! 0_o

So the first pair is going to be a nice ribbed-for-your-pleasure-sock, and it's made with my favorite sock yarn: Knit One Crochet Too's Crock-O-Dye.
I'm using size 1's for these and I'm pretty sure they're going to be tucked away into the Christmas pile for a good friend. (Even though I totally already want to keep them.)

The second pair is made with my second-favorite sock yarn: Cascade Fixation. I seriously love this yarn and have been meaning to do a review on it. It is so stretchy and totally awesome for anyone with a wool allergy or sensitivity. I knew right away when I found the yarn that I would do stripes, and I was toying with the idea of reversing them somehow when I found the perfect pattern. It's called Love Socks and it's pretty much what I was imagining but even better.
I'm loving it. The colors actually remind me of a flamingo, and then once you add in the heart and the fact that the second sock will have reversed colors... it just sort of adds up to a very Wonderland-esque feel. Which I'm quite fond of. I feel like the Queen of Hearts just now.

And, as I'm sure you can probably tell, no I am not working on my sweater at the moment. Apparently doing cables while watching Doctor Who in failing light isn't a great idea (Who knew?) so my I Heart Aran is sitting in a basket waiting for a bit of frog-and-redo. It's only a few rows, and I have high hopes that it will be done in time for next FO Friday but for now? Socks.


  1. Oh my goodness those Love Socks are super cute! They don't look easy either. Fantastic!

  2. Your pair of socks are looking incredible. Thanks for the review of Cascade Fixation ... I haven't seen that in my LYS yet so I'll inquire.
