Spring Green Socks

Sock wearing season is just about over here in L.A.
but I'm hooked on knitting them.
Currently, my favorite thing is plain old stockinet.

Working in the round and around and around is very relaxing, perfect knitting for those in-between times. Those moments while waiting for a file to download, or while watching television or when I just don’t want to think but feel restless.
These useful tubes of knitted goodness are the remedy, 15" of mindless knitting for the leg, some thinking and paying attention at the heel, then 7" of foot tubing and again a little thinking for the toe.

A quick graft and a couple of ends to weave in and you're done. I have three more pairs in the works using different yarns.
The yarn used for these spring green socks is Katia Mississippi #762 as the main color and Cascade Fixation #2706 for the heels and toes.

Kat, I don't think those socks could be any cuter! You, by the way, have the most excellent sock modeling legs. I'd give my entire stash of yarn to trade in my sad little cankles.

How do you like the fixation for socks? I (shockingly enough) have a bit left over, from a certain project I worked on recently.

I love these - and Marnie, they are even cuter in person. It's insane.

Besides being the cutest, those are also a couple of the happiest socks, ever! I'm so glad I was able to see them in person!

Kat-I totally love that green which just so happens to be my all time favorite color and with the aqua very 1960s. Well done-again.
