red and black Fixation socks

I’m really pleased with the way these socks came out. The intended recipient was likewise pleased! In the picture they are posing in my back yard.

The particulars:

  • Yarn: Cascade Fixation in colors 3628 (red) and 8990 (black)
  • Needles: two 24″ circular Clover bamboo US#3 (3.25 mm)
  • Pattern: My own, coming soon
  • Techniques: Toe up, two at a time. Magic cast-on. Picot bind-off.
