I twisted my co-worker's arm yesterday and made her come to the LYS with me at lunch time. While I was scoring some yarn which will be shown on a future addition of YPF (on SALE no less), the owner was putting these little beauties out in her stock. Well, I HAD to buy some to try didn't I? And I thought it would be a cool idea to make another pair of ankle socks for Mom for Mother's day, so I picked up the purples.
I couldn't help but cast on last night. Look at the purty little picot edge! Look at the appalling lack of activities in my planner!
The yarn is stretchier than Fixation, and a little thinner too, but really really soft. I was using a US 3 with the Fixation and this called for a US 2. I think it will knit up interestingly. It's a little, aaahhh, ruffly (if you've seen it than you know what I mean) and doesn't make for good stitch definition, but they're ankle socks, so who cares?
I also bought 2 balls for a pair of socks for my Dad. He needs another pair of socks from me cause Mom says when she washes the pair I made him, he practically waits by the washer & dryer for them to come out. Like a kid waiting for their blanket to be washed. heh!
