FO

I now present a finished object--the Flame Wave Socks:


From Favorite Socks
Yarn: Cascade Fixation
Needles: size 4 and 5 dpns

These socks are nice and cozy, and oh-so-stretchy. It's definitely strange knitting up socks on such large needles, but they worked up quickly.

I need to finish up my second Sockapalooza pal sock. The deadline is only three weeks away!

It's been a bit of a whirlwind around here lately. My husband is off on vacation, and I am starting a new job this week! Wish me luck.

good luck! and bytheway, what kind of dbl pt needles do you prefer? i thought wood or bamboo was better, but sometimes the smaller ones splinter, does that happen to you?
