Socks... I'm beginning to think I have a problem.

Do I have a sock problem? Yeah... probably...

This lovely pair of pink Broadripple socks was knit in Cascade Fixation. I started them on 9/8 and finished them in the wee hours of the morning 9/10. During their short time as a WIP they watched House with me, came on the subway and commuter rail, went to the beach, and went to see Little Miss Sunshine with Alexis and me. :)

And now the 2nd pair, baby socks again!

These are the socks I started at Alexis's when I finished my Conwy socks and had nothing to knit. Apparently the color repeats in this yarn are large enough for a whole baby sock, which makes them look a little odd.

And tonight I cast on and knit a couple rows on the cuffs of my Rock and Weave socks from the second Socks That Rock club kit.

Your Broadripples look GREAT! I've been working on mine so sporadically that it's been two months and I'm only just onto the second sock. (I've made about three other pairs in the interim.) I love the pink. Thanks for the motivation to finish mine up!

Girl, you're fast! I need two to three evening tv sessions to get plain stockinette socks for me and you knit broadripples!

The socks look great, and I like the baby socks too. Who says stuff has to match perfectly?

It's not a sock problem, it's a sock obsession. Obsessions aren't always a problem. :-)

Ooooh, I'm embarrassed now! I am doing the Broadripples (in the exact colorway in fact!) and I'm even doing anklets and I haven't finished yet...started them LAST MONTH!

They look great, and I think you might have provided the inspiration I needed...

Problem? I don't konw about that. But I sure do get a lot of vicarious sock knitting pleasure out of reading your blog!

Wow!! Very cool! I'm starting on my broadripples but the fixation is getting the better of me. I've only got size 3's in bamboo & I think that's my problem! :(

Yours are fantastic though!

I've made Broadripples, too. It's a great pattern! I love the color of yours. Those baby socks are sweet as well.

Pretty pretty Broadripples!

Y'know, I've seen the Harlot sign her books with "Obsession is normal." I tend to agree.
