It's HOT

Yipee!! I finally have a decent finished object to show. And yes, it took me over a month to knit this pair of ankle socks. Pathetic, but it's summer!!! And summers in MN are short so I savor them when they're here. That means less knitting and more playing. And speaking of summer there's a hot spell coming this way. The temp may reach 100ยบ, not too common here, maybe once or twice per summer.
Started: June 3, 2006

Finished: July 12, 2006
Yarn: Cascade Fixation color# 9955

The socks fit but I think next time I'll cast on 40 stitches instead of the 36 I used this time, it would be nice to have a little extra room.
I knit the socks for the Cascade Fixation Ankle Sock KAL hosted by KnitPastis.

Very cute. I am not a sock knitter, but I have been thinking about breaking down and making a pair of these myself. They seem fun and practical. I don't know if I can add to my to-do list right now though. . .

They are cute! I love the colors. And it is hot. And dry. But isn't it nice to have no mosquitoes? Hope you stay cool this weekend!

Those are fab. I think Fixation is one of my favorite yarns EVER.
