Yarn

I went to knitting at Wolseley Wardrobe last Tuesday. It's been a while since I've been there, and they're having a sale, so I petted all the yarn. Some of it stuck.

Whoops. (I did put some back...)

Yep, I'm *knitting* my second pair of socks. :) (Normally I crochet them.)

What do you think of the Fixation?

It's thicker than usual sock yarn. It's too thick for crochet socks, but I don't mind the extra thickness in knit socks. Elann has Esprit, which is the same stuff for less. My LYS had Fixation on sale for $3/ball, so I decided I'd like some more knit socks from Fixation. (I have one pair already from a Sockapalooza swap.) I've been having trouble getting my regular cotton blend socks on... not sure if they're shrinking, or my weight gain is going to my heels... and fixation has a lot of stretch due to the elastic.
