Wearin' o the Wild

I had green yarn in my hand at the yarn store, but spotted this one. The green was boring in comparison. The yarn is Cascade Fixation, cotton and elastic, for summer socks. It's thicker than fingering, and even on #2 needles, they were coming out way too big. I asked my husband if he would wear them and he gave me "that look." So I frogged the 4inches I had knit and started over on 56 stitches. They are a perfect fit for me. Two at a time, toe up. of course. Picot bind off instead of the eyelet picots.

Ya, my husband gives me "that look" when I ask him to wear wild socks also. They look great!
