Sockapaloooza socks complete!

Image hosting by Photobucket

Pattern: Broadripple
Yarn: Cascade Fixation
Comments: This ended up being something of a stealth project, since I kept waiting to post about them until Monday so as to join up nicely with Tuesdays are for Knitalongs and then forgetting to actually do it. I began these during the Super Bowl and got about two thirds of the way through the cuffs by the time Gray's Anatomy was over. After that they were a purse project with a break for the Knitting Olympics. I really like how they turned out. I've worked with Fixation before and really enjoy it. It's fast and makes a really nice material. I also really like this colorway. I have 97% of one ball left, so I think I may be able to get a short pair out for myself.

I'm getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow, so I don't know when I'll be coherent again. If I wake up, that is. I'm not entirely convinced I will. (I know many people have this done every day without incident, but I'm very nervous for some reason.)

Ahh, the good old Broadripple. Very nice to see some lovely Broadripples get made in these days of Jaywalkers and Embossed Leaves. Yours came out very nicely. Hope the teeth came out nicely as well!

The best think about Sockapaloooza is finding all of the knitting blogs I didn't know existed!

Have you read the Wild Swan by Pamela Kerr? It is based on the HC Anderson story with a bit of a twist.
